I would like to help hosting the content!

Post by myntt »

I have read the posts about bandwith issues and would like to help as this site preserves a lot of Unreal/UT history.
I'm able to upload terrabytes of files a month without issues and currently backup unreal related sites and wikis.
I just want to ask if it is possible for me to mirror the ut/unreal/unreal2/ut2004 & ut3 archive to help this site with bandwidth.
After obtaining these files I would offer them over http and also create a torrent so other members can backup the entire site without using bandwith right now.
I can send proof over pm!

We don't have any bandwidth issues. The only problems with bandwidth are from people leeching/site ripping the site(s). I ban people who do that so it hasn't been much of an issue lately.

For exactly these people I would like to offer a site rip. So archivists can create a backup of the file library but don't leech the bandwidth. Torrents are the future when it comes to large files. Linux distros, Space Engine and the Freemesh project use them to circumvent these issues. I have no problem seeding terabytes per data each month.

It's not needed. The site is already mirrored on more than one location on the Internet. Feel free to ask one of those site admins if you can rip their site.

Well I have to accept that. I hope it is fine when I try to mirror it with a limit of arround 5GB a day.

Abusing my site will get you banned. That's all I'm going to say.

I looked around on the net and ut-zone seems to be the only other alternative. Would you mind pointing us to a direction for alternative rip servers?
