Ok you bandwidth whores, listen up! j/k

Somehow we managed to exceed bandwidth for the month. Last month we used just 67.5% of our bandwidth and this month we hit 100% with 3 days remaining.
I suppose this is a good thing, however I had to bump up our hosting plan for additional bandwidth. We'll need to keep an eye on it again next month if this continues.

This is a good time for me to remind you about other places you can interact with HondaForums.com.

WTF, how did we exceed the bandwidth? Time for some additional mods to keep out the spam?

I was thinking we need to revisit the donation issue again to make sure we cover the increased cost of the higher bandwidth.

I was lonely for a couple days there. Thanks for bringing it back online Drew.

the pic threads may have done a good bit of damage...what if we started deleting the older pic threads that have exceeded 20 pages?

it's all your fault, you single handedly broke the internet. you caused mass fappage that coated the tubes.. you didnt stop to think that all that jizz would get sticky and cause an internet heart attack. shame on you.

Picture threads do not specifically add to bandwidth issue any more than other threads. All the images are links connected to other websites. When you load a pictures thread you are not loading most of the content from HF.

the few bits of spam we get around here contribute very little to the bandwidth usage

since traffic appears, from the outside, to be about normal, i'd look first at the shoutbox being the bandwidth-eating culprit

Traffic increased for about 2 weeks earlier last month for some reason. I'm too lazy to go find out why. Maybe we just had more people online. could it be?
