as you have all noticed, modDB has just reached 20,000 members!

Over the past 17 months, moddb has established itself as one of the leading mod-news websites on the internet, serving up over 1 million hits per day.


modDB has been coded up to be very bandwidth friendly, and only serves around 120GB of data per month, however, it requires two Dual Xeon machines to cope with the number of MySQL and PHP queries.

Tonight, modDB will go down for approximatelly 2 hours (estimated maximum) while we carry out upgrades on (mainly) the backend of our servers, including a new Dual Xeon MySQL database server.

Also, modDB 2.0 is in the works, and not a great while off!

To bad they let **** like Topsites.moddb.com that go on. The "generals factory" link looks like a valid site, click it to find out that it isn't a site at all. Just some idiot trying to sell copies of the game to make money. Not only that, but they have a good deal of people bumping it up to the top slot every day. It gets better though...the moddb staff has so far refused to take it down. Some great site huh?

Pogo was the most popular site ever, topping 400k visitors a day, and since we have 1m visitors a day, you know what I think?

I think we're the most popular site in the world.
