FSS Manga from Newtype - Too Popular

Post by Tachyon » Tue Feb 14, 2006 1:57 am

I found what's jacking up Gears Online's bandwidth usage; the FSS manga from the pages of Newtype Magazine. It's a lot more popular than I expected. With the announcement of book 12's publication I'm considering taking the pages down. Copy them if you like. I can't guarantee how much longer they'll be available.

I took the scans down. We'll all be reading through Japanese volume 12 soon anyway. Now maybe bandwidth usage will settle down.

Well, the FSS pages are easily the most popular section of Gears Online. Gundam Sentinel and Gundam Girls are popular too. We'll need to start thinking about how to properly handle (and expand on) our success. I'd like to call live chat sessions with people to discuss these issues but not quite yet.

For the present I'd like to see our content expand. My wife and 2 boys are visiting my in-laws in India so now is a great time for me to process submissions and new profiles. I've even got the images all cleaned up for Ballanche Castle and grounds.
