    forum hosting and what have you

    Post  Les Girondins on Sun Nov 30, 2008 12:28 pm

    hey guys. rossi: looking good man. nice forums and good attitude. Cool

    was just wondering about a couple of things..

    1. is this forum hosted on its own server? i used to be a cms nut and for 75 euro you can have a year of limitless bandwidth and your own forum running on your own domain.

    2. the width of the forum posts restricts imagine posting. is that intentional?

    cool. I was just wondering because i'm dropping a lot of packets in page refresh lookups, so bandwidth is not good?

    the width of the posts seems set up for style rather than functionality yes? i think most people have higher screen res than 1024 now and I'd like to see the forum expand horizontally maybe another 35% or so.

    screencap to illustrate my point:

    http://bayimg.com/image/eamclaabd.jpg

    my native res widescreen 1680x1050 usual now ..

    maybe up it to 1280x1024 default pixel width?

    that way can scale screencaps to fit using imageshack auto resizing etc.

    just a thought. dont want to be rude. Smile

    also maybe lower the limit on characters for topics to 5 not 10?

    you all love me now yes? join and moan. my forte. Razz
