  1. Wow! Congratulations. I tried participating but my exams are taking over my life.. . @Nathan, I like the idea about forum softwares as prize for the monthly competition, I would love to participate in it (and win if possible )
  2. Well done . There is the website called www.css3generator.com which makes all these effects for you. It is a great website. I have been using all the CSS3 effects from it.
  3. I agree with Spike, word of mouth is the best unpaid promotion. I also think links in signature or links in the posts (threads) are a great way to get visitors for your website. They attract a lot of members and I happen to be one of them. If I really like the topic of the forum/website linked in your post, I WILL visit it. It, in my opinion, is the second best way to promote your website. Another way is by affiliating with other forums but then you can start having rivalry between the two forums and may lead to downfall of the forum.
  4. I do think that paid is better but not always. I do prefer paid things when I want better things for my websites but then again, practice makes perfect and if you know how to get around it, then you should be fine.
  5. I don't like SMF to be honest. User wise their system is quite complicated and its not good looking at the beginning. Admin wise they don't have as many features as one would expect from a Forum Software. As someone pointed out, it doesn't have good enough system to combat spam which is becoming a really big issues now-a-days in forums.
  6. I have never used CMS until today. I have only made simple websites which don't have updating content. It is all stable. Otherwise, I use forums.
  7. Hey guys, I was wondering, where do you register your domain names? I register mine on Namecheap because they allow unverified Paypal addresses to pay for the domains. I have been using them for about 2 years now and have been very satisfied with their service.
  8. Hmm.. I'll give this a try, not sure if it will be successful though *fingerscrossed*
  9. I was born in 95 so I didn't really see the release of these. I used the first computer with Windows 98. And then XP. So I don't really remember these times.
  10. I agree with what Nathan said, there can't ever be everyone who likes the theme of your website. You should try to make one which pleases most of the people. If you own a forum or blog, do a poll first about which colour theme they would like first. Then you should give some choices of the free designs and tell them to choose from it and then get someone to make a similar design to that.
  11. I've been doing some research and I do think that Hostgator is quite good and I also found out about StableHost. They are quite good as well, and their plans are cheaper than HG's. I'll suggest you try them out. They have different servers which have quite good speed.
  12. I've used Namecheap for most of my domains because first of all, they support unverified Paypal addresses - which I have. Second of all, they have quite a good support and finally, they are just better than everyone else IMO.
  13. Well every forum software has its pros and cons. There are quite a lot of them out there but I agree, choosing one is one of the tough jobs to do. If you don't want to spend a lot of money at the beginning then I would suggest choosing from MyBB or PhpBB. They both are quite good softwares although I haven't used PhpBB recently. MyBB is very user friendly, it is the easiest software I have used until today and I have been able to design/create templates in it all by myself. From a forum point of view, it is very easy for the users to navigate around the forums. There are however some features which you might not find in MyBB but you will in other paid softwares such as making the user experience better by using jQuery and Javascript. I have not used a lot of paid softwares but from my experience, I think Xenforo is quite a good software to look at if you are willing to spend money for your forum.
  14. I think dreamweaver is a great software for you to design your website in. It is simple to use and really quick. It also has a side by side code and viewer. It is a great software.
  15. There are times when you need a specific plugin which you wanted to be created for your website. That is when I will be willing to hire someone. I will also hire someone professional to make a theme for a forum so that the theme is forum specific not just one which can be seen on every forum you go to.
