    That's a capital idea, I suggest that be done.

    The amount of pages that are viewed this month is on the way to 20K if the posts per page was reduced that should bring down some of the noise.

    Is the 30 per page default OK? Or do we need to go smaller?

    If you want to do a test to see what the difference is you can

    1. load page with current post per page setting

    2. go to View, Page Source.

    3. Save source as a file on your desktop.

    4. then see how big the file is.

    change post per page setting, then repeat.

    Honestly, I don't think it makes a big difference if you are going to read all the posts in a thread anyway. But it may have some impact in threads where 1) you are making lots of posts or 2) you are just look at end of thread.

    Depending on what the size of the base page is, it may actually end up using more KB to read an entire thread with smaller post per page because of teh overhead of the page itself and the Redszone image (which is about 11 KB)

    I've also been looking at the smilies, and they seem to be in between .75 and 1.25 KB on average. Decreasing use of smilies couldn't hurt.

    Great job, WOY and Pedro. I wish I could be some help, but you guys are the pros.

    WOY, you are the Al Swearingen of this site. Does that make Pedro E.B. or Dan?

    Wu, eh? A good man to not cross.

    I had him figured for Cy, actually, if you two are anything like my brother and I.

    Wu.... I can see him running into your office yelling "#$@%@$#" though, and drawing pictures of Cbus. And it does answer the question of what happens to banned posters.

    The set of changes made already should have some impact on the bandwidth utilization. If possible see if daily averages are available. That way we can gauge the impact pretty quickly.

    broad searches that return a lot of data would be the types that are going to cause problems.

    The banner image should be disabled for the rest of the month in my opinion. It accounts for a fairly large amount of traffic too.

    I sent an image to Gik yesterday that was 7K as oppossed to 10K.

    But for the Reds of the month it would/will save a lot.

    In fact I could make it smaller and about 4K if we need it to be.

    I'd just go with plain text for now. That would take it down to a couple of Bytes
