The main reason the server runs so slow at night is cause people are slamming the hell out of it!
Why does everyone feel the need to cram into the surfbar right at Midnight? You have 24 hours to surf folks - spread it out.
In any event - until further notice (till we get moved to RackSpace) the program will change in the following way to help alleviate some of the server lag.
No surfing required to activate your account (normally 10 sites)
You will surf only 5 sites to get paid your ROI (normally 15 sites)
Surf timer is set to 5 seconds per site (normally 15 secs)
Max sites you can surf in a day 10 (normally 40)
This should help, but please folks stop trying to rush in there to surf right at midnight, that's ridiculous. The server has several tasks to run at midnight and it can't do it's job if everyone is cramming in there to surf.
Once we get moved over it should be much better, but we're always going to take a hit in performance at this time everyday because of the change of day.
I'm sure everyeon would be appreciative if we could quell our eagerness just a bit and try to give the server a chance to do it's job.
