In Response To: this is for louis (SniPeR)

: hey louis i know how you are always complaning about not enough site on the
: page for the movies...but what if temporarly you got rid of some...if you
: put up the movies that have not bin doing to well..(about 20 or so) and
: then asked people to vote for the top five that should leave or stay..just
: a thought...becuase i am sure just like me everyone else wants to see the
: other halo hack movies :)

I can't figure out why people think that a question addressed to one person needs to be posted on a public forum - I do have an email address attached to almost everything I do...

What you don't seem to understand, though, is that we could remove EVERY SINGLE MOVIE except the currently posted one from Mythica's servers, and we STILL wouldn't be able to put more than one at a time up. The lion's share (90+%) of the bandwidth used when a new movie is released is for that new movie. Mythica's pipe is massive, by private fansite standards... but it's still just a drop in the bucket compared to what folks would take off it if they could.

Think about it - the average cable modem gets 500kb/sec download speed - some are as high as 3 or 4 megs, but most are 1 meg or less, and during the evening, I'd be surprised if the average guy was getting more than 500k.

Mythica, when it's being HAMMERED, is putting out 25 Mbit/sec. (That's half a T3, or 15 T1's - it's a HUGE amount of bandwidth.) That's only 50 simultaneous cable users!

Thousands and thousands of people try and download new movies, if we make a big deal about them. That would be fine, if we had Fileplanet-sized pipes... but we don't.

Bottom line - deleting old movies would have zero effect on the number of movies we can serve simultaneously, and would make people looking for older stuff very unhappy.
