For your question TuxToaster, I'm not sure of the exact bandwidth this site uses but once jeremy stated I think it was one month it was anywhere between 5gb and 10gb or more... Its alot with 300 to 400 members browsing daily with around 1,000 or more posts/threads per day average.

When you respond (as the first responder) to a thread with 0 replies it loses more than half it's viewers. Several people browse this board on quite slow connections, so they tend to glimpse over the forum, find a post they can respond to with 0 replies (meaning they don't have to read through a swarm of other posts) and post. If you respond with things like "Me to" or simple phrases like such, then those members will likely go without ever seeing the post. It really is a dis-service to the originator.



Cool

TuxToaster,

You have to be a Contributing Member to use PM's. You can feel free to email me if you have a question. We do use considerably more bandwidth than that BTW.
