Traffic Problems

Well, today I've got a little note from my provider. That I have to pay for 2 GB of traffic. It seems I've exceeded my 7 1/2 GB Limit.

This means my site became very popular, I should be happy, but I'm feeling very very poor now. I don't want any advertisement on my site. I've decided to put the pictures on another site. The one I got from my internet provider. That means a lot of work for me, changing all those links. Furthermore I'll try to get www.tombraidergirl.de and then the german stuff will move to a different server. (This is where I've got my star trek site and have another 7.5 GB)

Well they could have warned me. The logfiles said 4 GB, but they were not listing any jpgs as I've found out today.

Well the good thing is it forced me to clear up everything. I started with the german part and it's getting along very nicely. I've used the folders a bit different, this way I could save about 3 different menues. The site grew to quick to control it but now I'm finally having an overview again. My provider is currently working on their own site, what a timing, so I couldn't register the other domain so far.

Important! Website offline

I am sorry guys. The site has exceeded it's monthly traffic limit. I probalby have to pay much more money than I can offord to pay. :( :(

I had to shut it down all at once to stop the traffic from rising any more. When I come out of shock, I will see what I can do about offering the walkthrough somewhere in the forum.

How much will it cost?
And how long do we have to come up with the funds to keep it?

I am very willing to help to keep the forums (and whole site) up, at least in helping to raise the necessary funds.

Perhaps you could get some revenue through unobtrusive advertising like Google ads?

Contacting your provider, asking if you can change to a bigger package which also covers the additional traffic caused, helps. ;-)

Hadn't it beeen for easter... and this would have been fixed two days ago.
