Database Size - Pruning

Dear Everyone,

My database is now around 500 Megs in size. I'm currently hosting on a VPS in Russia and get frequent complains from folks about speed although for me, (I'm in India) it seems ok.

My question, should I prune this database? Will that increase speed?

If it seems to perform decent from 1 location and slow from another, then your database is probably not the cause.

And do not prune the database. You want more and not less content. Find another solution

500 mb's is not a lot. If your server cannot manage it, get a new one, but leave your DB alone.
