I'm a newly graduated web development guy. I enjoy gaming, writing, music, LEGO, literature, and a whole mess of other stuff. I'm passionate, focused, and enjoy a good debate. I use sarcasm liberally, so keep an eye out. :)

Do you not design databases before you build them? My question is on designing a database. Not troubleshooting one. I am not in the debugging stage yet, and even if I were, that would go to StackOverflow, not Programmers. Per the FAQ: Programmers covers algorithm and data structure concepts, design patterns, software architecture, software engineering... Not troubleshooting bottlenecks.

Well, it's a web app. A lot of users are potentially going to be modifying data fairly frequently. I'd imagine a lot of factors like you mention affect it differently. I'm not so familiar with those specifics; that's partially why I'm asking here.
