Pretty much. We can always enable it in case we need DDoS protection and/or we make the front page of Reddit or something, or any big file that needs a CDN.

Which I hope might never happen. (Well I'd like to make the front page of Reddit, but I hope it won't strain the server.)
Read Zarmina!

Quick! Make DoomCE so we can be on reddit, Mateo! :P So do you guys suggest changing our password here or what?

@Unicorn if a very big CW game (particularly a mainstream name like Doom, Mario, whatever) makes it on Reddit front page (eg if you post it there) or the top of a sub-reddit, make sure to warn the CW staff via PM so that we can make the entire staff global moderator :P (*glares at the nDoom incident*)

nDoom made front page on many huge gaming news websites in Feb 2011 then again in Mar 2011. It also made it to EncyclopediaDramatica forum. The result is that a troll invasion ensued on Omnimaga and it almost went out of control (although the way some veterans of another site intervened near the end, after most of the problem had been solved, didn't help).

Also I recall Omnimaga hosting provider getting DDoS'ed multiple times shortly after the troll invasion and somewhere in early 2012. Not sure if it was linked to nDoom going viral, though. If anything, it would have been much worse if gaming sites had linked directly to Omnimaga first rather than my Youtube video (which got 500,000 views in a week).

I hope you had that video monetized :trollface: But yeah, it would probably be a good idea to warn admins :P

Monetization did not exist on Youtube back then. Plus even if it did, in 2012-13 or so my video was wrongly claimed by some Belgian TV network for a few months until the copyright claim was revoked, so I would have lost a lot of my money. Besides, I am unsure if I would be allowed to make ad money on a video about a game I did not make. :P
