With all this chaos and the Dwarf Fortress site being down, this forum has seen a massive influx of members and viewers.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if we hit the bandwidth quota and kill the temporary forums...  Wouldn't that be ironic?

That's just it...  I'm not seeing the number anywhere.
I'm hoping we won't actually hit it unless you guys start attaching stuff to your posts..  Maybe I should just disable that...
EDIT: I have 25GB per month on the images.
I really doubt we get much more then that for the forums...

Aqizzar, Potash Maker has immigrated to your fortress.
Aqizzar, Potash Maker is throwing a tantrum!

So this you people have been hiding yourselves!  Anyone know how much of the old forum's threads are going to survive the transfer?  I'd hate to lose all that.

Apparently Toady backed up the whole SLQ database a couple of days ago just in case something like this happened.

Maybe limiting/disabling Avatares, signatures and picture attachments for now would be enought to brevent a bandwich breakdown.

Attachments IN GENERAL, yes.
Signatures HAVE to be outsourced to other hosts and avatars should be anyway.
I think we're fine except for the attachments...

You people need some way to let other people who were on the forum know that some people have set up a temporary forum so that us people can converse between us people, so as to not be too disturbed by the forum being down.

I just found out today about this forum by checking the wiki...
