The moddatabase has today lost its title as a bandwidth hungry biatch. In little over a month of operation this site has sucked down 50gigs despite not serving 1 download! Why? Well because every image scattered across this page used to be a full sized images shrunk down. Hence if you wanted to visit a mod profile, downloading 200 ~ 250k's worth of images was quite possible.

Courtesy of Megasaxon from Resistance-Resonator a 1337 image dump website the moddatabase now has a highly optimised auto-thumbnail generating script in operation.

This means pages will load alot quicker, and the bandwidth usage of this site should drop considerably. Enjoy the change - now you can browse twice the mods in half the time!!! :thumbup:
