  1. I still prefer vB 3.x .... it just seems to load faster on older computers. The newer versions get my laptop's fans spinning faster and that's the biggest reason why I have not upgraded.
  2. ChuckTesta, could I have the minimum offer you have in mind for 1) the website without the vb license and 2) database dump that is only to be sold once? You could PM me if you prefer. Thanks.
  3. I don't think new brands can start with a minimalistic approach. First they have to make sure people all over the world know what they are selling and only THEN can they start minimalizing. It's a gradual process that works well and moves along with company growth.
  4. I know this method sometimes works, but most of the time it doesn't. Because the two forums merged together just don't 'look' quite right, you can find a lot of unrelated topics. And those who are inexperienced with databases (like me) could have a lot of trouble doing it right. It's always best to start from the ground up IMO.
  5. Good question. I only ever start threads when I want to ask a question or I'm genuinely interested in discussing a topic. So for me, it's zero on most days, and a couple here and there each month.
  6. For one of my forums, I got moderators right from the start but it was no use, because I couldn't get new members on time and the moderators eventually lost interest as there was no activity on the forum. I have another forum that I am managing myself, and it's hard work having to moderate all the threads myself. The only reason I don't want to have moderators on this one is because the spammers have created some threads that a LOT of people have replied to, and if the moderator deletes that member's threads, all those posts will be lost. So I can't risk it - but I could definitely use the help!
  7. Anyone knows how to do a backup of all the cPanels in the VPS daily? Is there an easy way of doing it in WHM?
  8. The only thing worse than that is not typing the code from the book at all. I do that and can't remember what I read most of the time. Reading it all over again is not fun. Bah!
  9. Eh? An error from my side then. Because I couldn't play when I lost my internet connection, I thought they don't let you play offline. I don't find them pricey because the majority of the games I buy, I buy during sales, and the few that are brand new, I don't mind paying for because they're pretty much the same price in stores and more often than not they have titles I can't find in my local stores.
  10. I have the least problems with the .png extension so whether it takes more space or not, it's my preferred extension. My least preferred, on the other hand, is .gif. I've had so much trouble trying to convert it to other extensions without color loss - it's not worth the time nor the headache. I think people will start using that extension less and less. PNG is the way to go!
  11. I have one regged in 2001. Having trouble selling it for even a $100!
  12. It may not seem fair at first, but when you consider the fact that domainers spend hundreds of dollars renewing hundreds of domains each year, and they sell only a few of them in their portfolio within a year, it is expected that they would ask that much. How else would domaining be profitable? I normally only ask for a grand if the domain name is one that I know a lot of people will want. I get offers for those domains even when they're not listed for sale. It is pretty irrelevant how much they purchased the domain for - your only choices now are to either negotiate or opt for an alternative. Also think about what would happen if you no longer needed the domain and are going to sell it? How much do you think it would sell for? It will give you an idea of the worst case situation. Or perhaps the domain is indeed worth $1000 and you will lose nothing by using it for a couple of years before deciding to sell it off to get your $1000 back.
  13. That's good advice. And I want to add that the best way to find out if a forum software is going to work for you is to check out the admin panel. Every person has their own idea of organization, and I find vBulletin's admin panel works the best for me.
  14. That's probably not the 'exact' no. of monthly searches as it is too high, tick the box on the left that says 'exact' and check the no. of monthly searches again.. that will give you a better idea.
