    Something around 3000 members, 14,000 threads, and 170,000 posts. About 1500 posts a day, been up since November 2000.

    Forum has been down for a week, so not idea what the actual stats are. I forgot.

    Use about 200 MB of space for the mySQL database.

    Thanks

    Mine's not quite as large as what you're looking for. So far this month (ie, in 5 days), the board has used 2gb. However, if you'd like to drum up more traffic for me, I'm not going to complain.

    around 25,000 posts per month, about 6GB with gzip compression on. If you are a mainly text based forum with gzip BW is not normally a problem to be honest.

    Space: around 2.5 gigs of DB (but i run on innodb with index added in searchindex table... so its quite "normal" ^_^)

    Bandwidth: dunno exactly, but since we do about 50.000 hits every day, i guess that's somewhere around 80-100 gb monthly bandwidth.

    Stats: Registered Members: 4,430 (and just pruned 900 awaiting)
    Total Threads: 41,539 | Total Posts: 534,056

    Posts: average 3000/daily, peak 5000

    Users: average 100-130, peak 256.

    Ups, forgot to add url

    500MB on a normal day. 1GB on a busier day. Thank god for zlib or I would be up the creek without a paddle.

    Around 3050 members since I opened the forums in late May.

    Average of like 60 people on, usual peak of 80, max 196. Not to mention that these people are constantly "refresh" people and suck up all my bandwidth

    My site and boards are one and the same (the site is built off of vBulletin).

    Since June, 2001 -- 4866 members, 228.625 posts and 13,980 threads. According to my stats there are about 5-25 thousand people per day visiting. We get up to about 1.2-1.5 gigabytes in throughput a day (this is with zlib, but caching set off because of the user-location tracking stuff).

    The site uses three 2U servers. Two Unix and one Windows 2k AS.

    Our database is about 360 megs in size currently.

    Good idea Sinecure. This isn't really a vB "How Do I?" question. Moving...................

    I am hosted with f5hosting.com
    Its the best host around.

    - I have only pruned once. At 105,000 posts I pruned down too about 40,000 posts. And made my way back up.

    - Currently have used 122.46 MB


    Take in account, I do not have a Main Page.
    Perhaps that is why my numbers may seem off in comparison with other boards. Because for a few months I was just leaving a text link saying
    "Click here too go to rapbattle forums" with no images on the page. So it was rather small.
