For the longest time, I've been supporting the community with mods warehouse infrastructure, though I don't play anymore.
This is not free, but it is on cheap plans so I haven't minded. Also the occasional kind soul has donated (I think I get about $5 per month this way, which doesn't cover costs).
However, this infrastructure can't support bots or automated downloads. They put too much load on it, it runs out of allocation.
For some reason, the last few months, we've been running out of allocations at CMx1 Mods Warehouse.
I've ponied up a few more dollars this month to go to the next level and get it running again.
And I've had a look in the logs. It appears that someone has an automatic script/bot that is trying to download everything, one mod a a time.
This is not OK. The allocations we have can support people using it at a moderate rate, but not sustained bot usage.
If this doesn't stop, I'll have to turn it off, or ask you all for the money to keep it going.
In case it's of any use or interest, the IP address originating the requests is 126.96.36.199. Unlikely we could do anything with that, but just in case.
