Does the cost have any correlation to the bandwidth the site takes up?

yea $120 for the hosting and $8 for the domain name. So close to $130 a year.

And what does $130 get us ? 30GB bandwidth / mo. and 2GB webspace.

Likewise. smile.gif I've only been here a month or so, but man, do I love it. You guys are all awesome. This place is so much better then Initial-D.com. There forums are alright.. but idforums.net is soooo much better. XD Plus, I have no life at work, so this keeps me entertained pretty well.

OH!! When do I get promoted from a God Member???? I want a kick-@$$ name, too!! XD

EDIT: Wow, exactly two months.. oops. >.< Heh.

Well I really dont like the idea of 300 posts, because some people just might spam like crazy to get to 300 posts for the custom title.
