What if we split the forums up… so not all the forums are on one persons site. I know blendermania also has forums. That would definitely help keep the bandwidth down. I also have forums on my site and would willing to try it for a while to see how it affects my bandwidth. We would just need one central page somewhere with links to the different forums… and possibly some sort of similar branding/design to keep usability the same. I’m currently using Phorum a php Phorum but I’d be willing to use phpBB to keep things the same as I believe blendermania as well as elYsiun use this forum soft.
Also… As for banner ads. I don’t know of any. But with the amount of traffic the Blender community generates… anyone who runs forums will probably get into issues with bandwidth. But splitting them up should help.
