Question Bandwidth Issues

Got a e-mail today from our host saying that we are at 80% bandwidth capacity. I was surprised by this.

What kinds of things can we do to reduce bandwidth usage? Are there any mods that would help? Would deleting some of the older video (you tube) threads help?

Youtube videos are served from Youtube, not from your server. So deleting those won't help.

Probably the best thing to do is to enable browser caching for your site in .htaccess. This MIGHT work for you, but it depends on how your server is configured.

The other thing to look for is if some IP address is constantly hitting your server and ban that (those) ip addresses if you can.
