Ignore him. It was clear to us that you were just getting information prior to ordering vB.

My Board has about 1400 members and 25k posts. The size of the database is just under 40Mb and I use about 1.6Gb bandwidth per month.

One of the ones we're set up is 1,800 members, 49,500 posts, and uses 150 MB file space.

Bandwidth: I hit 9.8 GB of traffic at the end of November, which was the largest amount transfered so far in a single month. These are my stats for the month so far:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Hope this gives you a general idea! I'm paying 20 per month for my host (a really good 1 off special deal). But I am going to start breaking my allocations.

Once you get these things going they seem to snowball. GL.

wow, thanks loads :D
any more would be really aperciated!

OK: Well, I'm aming at at board (built up over 5/6 months) of about Members: 300, Threads: 1000, Posts: 9000.
I gather that I'll be using about 2/3 gig of bandwidth a month and that will fill about 20 meg.
^ Is that *roughly* right, because from the above posts, it's hard to gauge!

Now, I run the usenet news server hack, and a lot of the others too :)

The usenet hack rakes in alot of the new posts (mostly trash) each day, but does bring in some gold mines from time to time.

Current Database is about 180 meg
