    Default Reducing monthly server fees

    Brett - If the size of the board was reduced, would it reduce the monthly server fees? One thing I was looking at was the members list. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of "members" who registered years ago, have never posted, and have not been active in years. If those IDs were deleted, would that help with anything?

    That's a good question.

    Out with the old and inactive as they say.

    I think that was the tagline on one of the brochures for the retirement home that my kids tried to get me to read...

    The number of members is 1/40 of the number of posts. And it's not the SQL DB that pushes up the maintanance cost, it's the bandwidth used by active members. smileys/avatars/related.

    Nah has nothing to do with that guys, it's not all the members.

    The site is run on a dedicated server, it has to be. And for what we have, we do get a great deal for $300 a month (I pay half). For what we need here, this is the cost unfortunately.
