That'd be great, but all of the built-in image compression in SMF relies on software the host has not loaded.

December's traffic was ~150g.
January is 3x that a week in.

Oh hi, please optimise your images using software we won't load onto the server, kthxbye.
Edit: perhaps my maths are off, but there's 340,000 page views. That's an Average of 1.2 mb per page views.
Oh I'm an idiot, the game is downloaded from the forum right?
The 7.1 patch thread was viewed 12000 times since December, assuming it's been downloaded that many times and the 5.54 as well, would be 1.2 Tb.....
Surely it's a little lower than that but still, I'm sure you can check many times the games been downloaded....
If it's significant then hosting the files elsewhere should help a little.

Yeah, they are certainly annoying me to no end.

On a side note, the host suggests that I optimize images and consolidate CSS files.
He is not completely wrong, it might alleviate some strain, every little bit helps, no? But here is catch 22, I tried to trim down the css on the wiki (I can reduce about a third without too much hassle) but I can't update it because 403 Forbidden!  At least images aren't an issue there, because of volume and the way mediawiki handles it.

.... I know the forum activity exploded but that still seems excessive considering this is still a fairly small forum.
Unfortunately, once you hit the ceiling, it usually tuns into a downward spiral. That is when people get an error they tend to obsessively refresh, generating extra calls for the already resource deprived sever..

Yeah, its most likely the single most offender as far as Eriks bandwidth stats goes. Probably more so for the portable version, but at least its not hosted here. Also it appears that most of the new users seem to have found a home on reddit.

Looks like Erik, changed the Aurora files hosting location, which should help. Btw, big thanks to Erik for working on all of this in the background!

Edited.

All of the words that have been triggers have been SQL keywords.

All I can tell is that if was something consistent that I can identify, then I could write couple of regex fixes for myself (like i did for 0.x). but to me it seem too random. Like MarcAFK post above which several minutes later you can no longer quote, or from today:

On Version_7.0 I can't add:
Code: [Select]
==Army Officer Promotions==
only
;=Army Officer Promotions==
while there are plenty of other headers above and bellow just like that, but only this one fires, even if I remove the content

Or on Version_6.40, there are several trigger words including wh_en that prevent me from updating it.

Edit:
Whatever it is, it interferes with forum\wiki basic function, affecting people ability to post content and wasting their time trying to hunt the heretic word of the day.

Lots of issues over the last two days for the forum for me. regardless where I am and what computers I use. I got a Server is out of resources message only 30 minutes ago. I had cannot post message forbidden. there was nothing in the text that I could see that was like 'case', but it would not allow me to post two sentences. I had very long delays in opening pages, sometimes not opening at all.

I think think the DB may need some maintenance.

We already discussed that here

TL,DR: The hoster installed crap and now the server is in a constant state of near breakdown. Erik is on it and plans on switching hosts.
