Bandwidth improvements

Over the past few months our bandwidth usage has skyrocketed. So today we took the first steps in optimizing our bandwidth usage.

For our bloggers there should be no negative changes. However, there will be some cool perks:
+’leaderboard’ type info showing the top blogs on
+better performance*
+we can reduce our overhead**

*since we can more easily find blogs that are being spammed or are outdated, we can remedy those issues and everyone benefits with less server load and faster response times etc.
**bandwidth is one of our primary costs, and every GB of transfer saved helps minimize expenses… which is very important since we are a volunteer based organization that does not charge for personal hosting!
