I sincerely request the Admin to set the loop in such manner that when we post a reply, the next page to open shud be the said Broadbands home page and not the same thread of the posting.This will help us save quite a bit of data transfer.Also the page is quite cumbersome and uses immense amount of transfer - it tells on our usage very heavily. I really sincerely request u to make the page lighter and also reset the loop.

Well, I do check my usage after sat a 30 minute or an hour long forum ( this forum mainly ) run and and feel that I used up too much of my quota. The other day I crossed 30 Mb in one session. Thats one full days allotment out of 1 Gb per month that I have.

well there are two problems. their are few skins optimised for indian internet connections ( :p ) and the version of this board is quite old. i will still try to find a less graphic intensive skin for you guys. though i think surfing this forum with images off would help a lot.

i have added the lite ultra skin to this forum. apparently opera is not displaying it in the drop down! well check it out and try using it. i doubt it makes much of a difference considering the pages have tons of content.

I have made a chnage in my settinsg for the forum - no of Topics set at 10 and no of posts under each topic set to a max of 40.
All I now need to see if I can loop it such that when I make a post, I revert to the home page - https://broadbandforum.co/index.php?act=SF&s=&f=39 instead of going back to the Topic. I am sure I will be able to locate that setting. Shall help me save some time and Kbs too. Time is more important I would say in retrospect.
