Title: Bandwidth issues
Post by: Kilman on September 01, 2014, 05:30:50 PM
I've noticed that we are now starting to have bandwidth issues at the end of the month (I gather the hosting service limits the number of visits you get each month by limiting total bandwidth usage).  Since there has been very little member activity recently, I can only assume that bots are stealing almost all our bandwidth >:(.  Not sure what can be done about it (aside from giving the hosting service more money so more bots can visit), but I will look to see if the forum developers have any useful suggestions before bothering Donna.

It started happening again after spammers started flooding the board.  I've changed some settings and we will see how that works out.
