One of our members asked me this question in a private email:

I thought I would answer this publicly as the answer will probably be of interest to most of you.

Our PAETE.ORG subscription is with Site5.com (www.site5.com). We are on their REDLINE plan. This plan gives us 6Gb of Disk space and a 90Gb bandwidth consumption per month.

DISK SPACE

The 6Gb Disk storage contains all the website files of www.paete.org, the Munisipyo (http://www.paete.gov.ph) and the database of the new USAP PAETE forums and the InspireMe mailing list maintained by Aurel. There is a problem right now at Site5.com's disk consumption stats so I do not know how much we are using right now. Every photo-id you save in your PROFILE will count against that 6Gb Disk storage. The smaller the size of your photo id therefore, the smaller our disk consumption will be. That is why I imposed an 80 pixels restriction. If we exceed the 6Gb storage limit, access to our site will be suspended until I reduce the file size or unless I upgrade to a more expensive hosting plan.

BANDWIDTH CONSUMPTION

Everytime someone view our website or read our Forums, the "files" they are viewing and the forum article they are reading are being counted as bandwidth consumption. For example, if you have a 50Kb photo ID, everytime someone reads your posts in the Forum, it adds 50Kb to our bandwidth consumption for the month. So if you are a superposter on the forum and you have a very large photo-id- all your forum postings will be adding considerably to our bandwidth consumption everytime someone reads your posts. If we exceed our 90Gb bandwidth consumption in any given month, we pay $2.50 for each excess GB.

Photo-ID is cool but we need to use it in the Forum for its primary purpose: to make it easy for us to recognize one another when we meet in person. Please do not try to use it as your mini-website Very Happy
