As you know, the site has been having some difficulty over the past few weeks. I'll not go too far into the reasoning behind the issue.. however, several changes have been made to account for the increase in bandwidth being used.

One of the largest concerns that we have at the moment, is trying to process the amount of images being viewed. The site is using around 1GB of bandwidth every couple of minutes. Whilst this isn't particularly a large amount by itself.. it is when you take into consideration the relative page views to achieve that figure.

I have had a little system running which tracks images viewed by each users IP address. There are some IP addresses that are downloading crazy figures. Out of the 67,000 image views over the past 10 minutes, several IP addresses are downloading 1000+ images alone, each

If you're going to use smart phone applications to download content - please, respect the site, don't have hundreds of simultaneous downloads. Your IP will be automatically flagged and you'll start seeing this...

is there any reason someone should be getting this message when they are not downloading anything, but just viewing the manga on this site?
I am having this problem right now and i have never downloaded any of it.
