Every now and then somebody comes and asks, "How much space do these forums take up?" I've seen it happen a few times.

If I had to guess, I would say that the entire forums take up to 100 mb

Pips and avatar are NOT included in every post. That's just silly thinking. They take up whatever space they use on the server only once. As for avatars, mine doesn't take up any space because it's linked to from off-site. The entire forums don't take up anywhere near 100MB.

Oh, BTW: nobody is forcing you to guess. You just want the extra post.

Some people might want to know how much space they would need to set up their own one?

Vanhal asked me to back it up so I taught I'd give it a try Na na!

This has been discussed twice before. Take Vanhal's post count, subtract 10000, and that's how many he really has.
