    ...what happened to it? 150 down to...20? The way I figured, if your subscription rates were for 6 months, I have 5 months left. :)

    I'm confused. I never activated any subscriptions. Every user on the board outside of mods and admins are listed as 'registered' users.

    The quotas have been lowered to save on bandwidth, storage space and maintenance. Honestly, I saw pretty much no interest from the members here on the paid option other than just a couple of users.

    There's actually a lot of added maintenance of separate storage areas and permissions. I just can't see going forward with the idea for 3 or 4 users.

    I'll probably make a special group with added benefits for those who have donated in the past.

    Jim...I admit I don't have a clue about bandwith etc..But would it help to dump old threads? I just looked at one that's over a year old. Why store that?

    Text files don't eat up a huge amount of bandwidth - that takes awhile.. But pics eat up a snotload...

    Okay...I do remember hearing that about pics..
    But, what about...2081 threads with 31892 replies or 2468 threads with 30300 replies?
    That seems like it would take up space to me. Am I wrong?

    Oh yea..here *have a facial tissue*
    I don't want snot on my shirt tonight.:gross2: :D
