Some of you might notice, the board was down last night. (12:00 AM - 10:20 AM PST Sept. 10th) Why did I turn the board off ? Well, it's because the board is using too much bandwidth lately. Let me show you the stats for idforums.net

idforums.net is supposed to not exceed 267MB bandwidth usage per day, however, for the past 3 days (Sept. 7th - 9th), the bandwidth usage went skyrocket. I have no choice but to close the board for 10 hours. If the bandwidth usage show no sign of declining today, I'll be forced to disable guests on the board. That's it for now, I'll keep you all posted.

Looks like 10 hours of timeout didn't do the trick. The board consumed 286 MB bandwidth yesterday (Sept. 10th), which is still too high. I have no choice but to enforce mandatory registration. That means you will not see any guests posting on this board anymore.

I was originally planning to enforce mandatory registration when the member count hit 1000, but seems like the release of TokyoPop version Initial D brought us some traffic. Which is a good thing, and a bad thing. I hope the board will stand as it is now. For now, enjoy it while it's still running fine without any problems.

The bandwidth usage is slowly declining. I appreciate all of your hard works in lowering the server load. I will consider re-open the forums to guests again if the bandwidth usage stay at the level as it is now.
