    why not make the test forum posts expire after 2 days or something?
    i think it would cut down on band width a bit since so many people go in there and pad. every time they post like 50 replys to thier own post they are loading a significant amount of info if you add it up....
    just an idea.

    Not really, the old posts are/should be in their browser cache.

    Haha, yeah, I have no cache at all being on cable, but most people still have 500MB or some other ungodly amount even though they have broadband. I don't really think the test forum posts get enough views to make them a real hindrance to the bandwidth usage though.

    I dont think you understand bandwidth. Old posts that are not opened do not use bandwidth. It is only the process of opening a page (therefore downloading the text, graphics, etc) that takes up bandwidth. The only time there is extra bandwidth is if someone opens an old post to read it.
