    What are the things that we (GT users) can do to reduice bandwith?
    just wondering, if some of the simple things we do without thinking or knowing causes unwanted use of bandwith and we knew what they are we could avoid this actions.
    Can someone post a list of dos and donts?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Don't visit www.glocktalk.com
    ;f (ignore this one!!)

    Everytime you access a page you download information. SO I guess in theory don't click every link but only the ones you're most interested in.

    Host pictures off site and then use the tags to link them to your post.

    Don't tell your friends about GlockTalk so they don't visit the site. ;f (ignore this one!!)

    Click on all the ads you see to put money back into GT thereby paying for the bandwidth you use.

    Donate money to GT.

    Dance an Irish jig!!

    Turn off the option to show avatars and signatures. Speeds up the loading of pages.

    Besides turning off avs and sigs, and hosting pics offsite, also truncate your quoted text to just the important part instead of the whole damn thing.
