Terashi, there isn't really a problem with a server, however, the site's popularity has grown to the point that daft needed to restrict the download speed. I personally use BT whenever it's convenient...

gah! does that mean it's gonna stay this slow?! i haven't gotten a single file to download completely since things slowed down, not even the little mai hime omake. sigh. still hoping it gets fixed.
oh and no one seems to respond to the question "how can we help" on these boards. seriously, there's gotta be something we can do.
Unfortunately, yes, for the time being.
As for how you can help: The only method currently available to help the site is to promote it via word-of-mouth! Weak, I know, but try to hit at least one each day... Every little bit helps.
Okay, I just came up with a plan to resolve this problem but I'm not sure if it's possible to do right now (I contacted the host and i'm waiting for a response).
$69/month + $150 setup = an 200gb archive server (5mbit.. not fast enough for regular traffic but fast enough for bittorents)
$99/month + $0 setup = download server, fetches directly from archive on demand
total: $168/month + $150 setup (bigger hd, slightly slower speeds compared to before, more scalable system)
oh, and + $19/month for website, so actual total is only $19 more than before.
Let's hope the host responds positively to the email.
The $99 server doesn't have much space so it can't hold everything that I would like it to hold. It doesn't include unlimited traffic but it sure includes a lot. A lot is like 80% of the traffic that we're getting atm. This means that for another $99, we can be at 160% (60% to spare) but only if we can generate enough revenue to pay for it. The $69 server has a 200gb drive that can store everything.
Again, I'm waiting for the host to reply to see if this plan is actually something I can execute.
perhaps, but im just losing my patience with this site. yeah, ive been bitching alot, but i dont have the money to afford anime DVDs, i live in a friggin cockroach infested house for crying out loud. sorry about the bitching, its just that ive been using this site for like, 4 months, and Ive fallen in love with it.
can't wait for problems to be fixed - till then - little bit of complaint - just cause
geez this sucks, i'm going at like maybe 18k/s when i'd usually go at least 70k/s
speed is crap and 3/4 of the new stuff doens't work or it all quits at like 33% i'd get air 12 but i can't use bt and koi doesn't have a mirc channel so i have to wait for the site to put it up but that's taking forever as well even if it would take a while to get it i'd still like to try - anyone else in any channels in mirc that has air 12 ehy could send me? or gakuen alice 6? any help would be appriciated till the site can hopefully get rid of whatever bugs it's got right now. can';t wait for it to get back to normal.
well s**t even air 12 gets on the site just to not f***ing work, gets to 33% then just disconnects what a piss off if only my isp wasn't so anal i could use bt to get it
