Technical Question @ mods/admins
how much bandwith does ST use per month?
and how much does it cost u guys?
i know of a hosting service that offers:
1 terabyte transfer per month at speeds of 3.7mbps
and its only 10$ per month
and considering the amount of advertisements and donation links, im sure u guys would get atleast 10$ a month from em
just a thought, if ur interested, email me and ill send u the site link
Mirror 2 is doing something like 900 gigs bandwidth in two days which would be 13TB's alone, and I can't tell on Mirror 1 since we are doing so much that apache is locking up trying to count. Mirror 2 does between 20mbps and 60mbps, Mirror 1 is 20mbps all the time.

Mirror 1 = $180/m
Mirror 2 = $370/m (Working on getting better deal)
hrm, in that case, people click the ads and donate!
You really aren't getting anything back from the users huh?
The bandwidth costs are just too much...
You mentioned in another topic that no one was donating...so why not just shut down your download section for an indefinate period of time to gauge just how many people would be willing to stick to the site and not just because of free downloads?
I suggest you put up a few more ads, clicksor or something...(I don't trust google adsense, I once had them and they froze my account at $110 for "invalid clicks" just before I was going to pay for the server, had to pay from my pocket...)
Brian got terminated for the same reason. Not getting much of anything back. This is why I wanted to start some type of premium membership.

omg google adsense did the same to me =\
try clicksor, they pay at much lower denomiations or the newly created yahoo publisher beta
tho yahoo pays at 100$ and you have to wait a long time =\
I had troubles with Clicksor leading to pornography sites when I specifically chose not to include them though...
Do a premium for anime shows or something...
