  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 featu
  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.
  16. I haven't made any yet :$.. I will do them tomorrow or friday as I have more time then... I can make a lot of HTML and CSS tutorials. They might come in handy to anyone..
  17. I am a Android fan. I really hate the iOS because of the lack of customisation which you can do with it. I prefer Android all the way when choosing or using a phone
  18. Here is mine: This is not my usual keyboard.. Also, I'm not in the mood today
  19. I think I can do very small tutorials such as how to make something from HTML & CSS. But I don't think I can go any more in depth as $2 is simply not worth it.. I'll try making one tomorrow.

    WTS Big-Board.net

    Its a good domain you have there.. Around what price are you looking for this? Are there any traffic details you can provide me?
  21. I like the new one but I liked the old one as well (can't one like both? ). The newer one looks better. I haven't yet started using G+ but if I do, it could work well for me.
  22. I am not sure what the worst thing I have done is but one bad thing that I have done is that I used a free forum hosting website which wasn't well established and I went off paying $50ish to get ads removed and all to find out in the next 2 days, I had been IP banned.
  23. I really want to learn PHP and then go on to learn MySQL and things related to those. I have been learning PHP for past few months and I think I am half way through learning it but I still need some understanding of where to apply things.
  24. Wow! 6 and 7 G-mails? That is a lot. Why do you have so many? Glad to know I don't have a lot of e-mail ID's.
  25. As far as I know, it is the IPB standarad theme. I have used it on other forums as well and it is the same. I really like using it as it speeds everything up on mobile. There are similar plugins to get the forum on mobile for MyBB as well (which I am using for my forum).
