80% of support tickets are duplicate issues generated by system errors. Fixing the issues eliminates the administrative work. Training someone would also take away time from fixing the errors.

Do you mean prohashing is some kind of a hobby project?
It would seem that at the very least it is not the top priority, which is a pity - Prohashing is a potential goldmine for anyone who would commit to it full time.
The numbers are relative. The current profitability isn’t going to hold for very long. It would take a quarter million dollars a year to convince me to give up a job that provides benefits and retirement plus long-term stability and protection from having to move to a big city to get another job if this would fail, especially in the current healthcare climate controlled by Republicans. Mining isn't that profitable owning only a third of the business, or at least not yet. Plus, Chris already works full-time.
The cause might be too many users or too much hashrate. or a system process we can’t see from the site stats. It could be the database is filling up with log files. It could be a lot of things or combinations of things.
but why does it ran just perfect for several hours with 500++ Users, i think there is bug in some code - perhaps you can figure out which threat generates so much work that shares cannot be processed like before - i only see the rejects but maybe the server admin sees the reason
Sure? Seems to be the same shi... as the last days, Servers is running just nice for some hours (after you fixed it this night) then server is getting slower, then mass of rejects icoming after the rise of rejects Server will be down within the next hour.... *cry*
