Notice - Direct Downloads, a thing of the past

Some of you may have noticed that none of the direct download links are working. This is because despite having unlimited hosting, the fact that there has been over 2000gb of bandwidth used for the wemakestorm.net domain in just the past 12 days my host has cut off service to that domain because it has caused issues for the server.

The only option at this point is to go to a private server, which would cost over $100 a month for the current usage of the site.

Unfortunately, the community at large will have to suffer for the actions of a few. In no way am I going to sit here and throw a hissy fit about people "not reading the rules" and this didn't make me have a panic attack or anything of the sort. Am I disappointed? Of course. But I also knew this was a possibility.

Hotlinking has been the major issue. Hotlinking will ALWAYS be a major issue. There's no way around it.

I will be systematically going through the comm in the coming weeks and deleting any post that has direct links on it. The ONLY ones I will be replacing will be my own DVD rips/scans.

Subsequently, I am taking a break from encoding. School has started up again and there is a lot more work than I'd originally anticipated and a lot I need to focus on. I will still be doing personal DVD rips and sharing those, but hosted only on MU and MF.

I apologize to those of you who have been watching the community since the beginning that it had to end this way. last_of_days will still be uploading weekly shows so I suggest you head over there and join if you're not already a member.

It's been fun, but all good things must come to an end. penguin
