Seriously, i am one of reason of increased costs?



Sorry, I forgot about this question.


Our hosting costs are a function of two factors; disc space use, and total active user slots.

Our disc space use is nothing because I currently have local file storage disabled.  Aside from our emoticon library, this entire forum is basically all HTML files, which is basically text.  All the pictures and videos you see on this forum are hosted somewhere else, so our disc space use is about 10% of the limit before we need to upgrade the service.  So spam post away; it costs basically nothing.


Our total active user slots average about 30% of capacity, but there are spikes about once a day that go up to 70% capacity or so.  For very, very brief times, maybe twice every week, we will max out capacity, but I think these "users" are search engine spiders and not actual users.
