MOVING DAY POLL!
« on: 2010 January 11, 17:44:48 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Due to persistent inadequacies in bandwidth, and various other tech support related issues, and the fact that our billing period expires in about 4 days, the time has come to move to an alternate hosting arrangement:

Our options are as follows:
1. We can move to Kofistan, home of TPB with a hardened service provider that will withstand all but the most determined attack. This will somewhat increase our present costs and our warchest will therefore need refilling earlier than originally projected.
2. We can take up with an El Cheapo outfit that usually hosts stuff like porn. This will lower our existing costs, but stability will be unforseeable, as they may fold up unexpectedly. The bandwidth situation will not improve.

Either way, we will get a cool flag.
This decision must be made soon, or the server will be shunted to the crappy backup hosting and you will get to lag horribly while reading about this.

El Cheapo is always cheap.  You get what you pay for.  Besides, I hear Kofistan is a swell place.

Pirates or porn? I have a porn convention at work this week, so I've had enough of that. Pirates!

Over population was always predicted to destroy our world. I say, Throw out and ban all the N00Bs out of here that use useless emoticons, so that there's more space for awesomeness!!

Why not just clean out the site? Are you willing to do that? Anyway, I go with Kofistan just cause it's more stable.

EDIT: Is the bandwidth problem (here) caused by too much posting and stuff or just over population?

Definitely a 'you get what you pay for' kind of thing... it's why I didn't go the 'cheapo' route when I got my own website.

I don't mind tossing a few bucks into the hat earlier rather than later...if it weren't for AM, I wouldn't even bother installing the game.

Based on what? Stupidity? Or the easy way, date of registering?
I would suppose to wipe out everyone who registered before 2009 November 26, 03:36:26, not caring how long the lurked around here and did shut up when others were talking.

Kofistan all the way, wouldn't want my favourite porn sites to start lagging because of MATY! Unfortunately I cannot give you any extra donations, the monthly fee here is expensive enough.  Tongue

Really sorry for the double post but the "edit" function is out of order.
For sure, we should delete all accounts before 2009 November 26, 03:37:00 to get all the dummbarts out of the system, including myself.

Deleting accounts wouldn't save bandwidth. The forum is still accessible for public view. You don't need an account to see most of the sections of the forums. Every request to access and download a website's data is what eats at the bandwidth limit.

Stability is MOAR important in this case IMHO than saving a buck or two. The aggravation likely with the cheaper but dubiously reliable service will more than negate any savings that this cheap pr0n buttocks might offer.

This is an utterly moronic proposal that demonstrates a complete failure of understanding.

Can we make a distinction between Smelly N00b and Uber Lurker? That would suck if I was shunted because post count or something on a rudimentary level.

Such a thing already exists - it is called the "member since" date.

As for the poll, definitely in favor of Kofistan.  Will donate.

While we're demanding new features, would it be possible to make a non-Horror-related forum for general-purpose announcements?  I hardly come here anymore because I've more or less permanently moved back to TS2.

Sorry, Pescado, you got this one wrong. I was referring to the proposal of AloeOwl by looking at his profile, which will explain my totally nutty idea and, unfortunately, would delete myself as well. But, as obvious as it is, this would not bring ease to the bandwidth, just to the brain drain problem.
