    Hey All!

    Hello and welcome to the forums! 👋
  2. Looks like a nice and active community - good job! 🙂
  3. Are you still having problems with your domain name? What happened?
  4. Do you use an VPN? And if so, which one?
  5. Why do you switch back over to Chrome, aren't those two browsers pretty similar these days?
  6. That's a nice and active community - good job! 🙂 I just feel like the font that you use on your Discussion Hub V1 Light and Dark themes is pretty hard to read. The font you use on the Discussion Hub V2 (Dark) theme is so much better and easier to read IMHO.
  7. I might be wrong here, but doesn't MyBB still lack a mobile ready theme out of the box? That seems like a pretty essential feature these days.
  8. IPB is a great forum software, but they have recently increased their prices which makes their forum suite and apps pretty hard to justify for non-profits and hobby projects, which is a real shame.
  9. Agreed, that's the problem with most of these free community services and hosts: you are not in control of the actual content. Your community and content it at the mercy of the company which runs the host and who any day could decide to close down your forum for whatever reason.
  10. I stick with paid hosting because I want to be in control of my content and be confident the web host doesn't inject ads/malware and whatnot on my pages. There is also the risk of your site disappearing because the free web host cannot pay its bills or someday just decides to shut it all down. It's the same thinking with those free forum services which you can use. But sure, free web hosts are great if you're new to web development and just want to learn and try stuff out. But then again, most shared hosts doesn't cost much these days.
  11. I've also used free domains and free web hosting services when I started learning web development years ago. They are useful when you're new and learning, but not so great for real web projects. These days I would never use them. I don't know how much a free domain name impacts your SEO though, but I would love to hear more on that from someone with knowledge on the topic.
  12. Welcome to the community! 🙂

  13. Welcome to the community! 👋

  14. Yeah, I get that. It's just that I use my phone for so much more than just sending texts and making calls. But then you must really love a small-ish phone like the galaxy flip from Samsung?
  15. ResetEra, which is one of the biggest gaming forums, was sold for $4.5 million USD to a Swedish media company called MOBA Network earlier this week. Eurogamer reports that MOBA already owns other gaming communities and that the Swedish media company hopes their new acquisition will help expand its advertising revenues. "ResetEra.com's revenue is generated through ads and member subscriptions. M.O.B.A. Network sees significant opportunities to increase advertising revenue through a higher share of direct sales, implementation of new ad formats, and a long-term product development strategy.
  16. Almost 5k posts, that's a nice milestone! 🙂
  17. Yes! There are some amazing WYSIWYG editors and services available these days. You can easily create some astonishing websites without any knowledge about programming or even basic HTML.
  18. Yep, no matter what you do, some forums never really seem to take off. I run a few communities and one that I've had since 2017 is just like that. So, I am planning on doing a complete rebranding with a new domain name, design and layout/features. Hopefully, that'll make it more popular.
  19. Interesting, I honestly never thought about the possibilities of advertising on youtube. Do they offer anything else besides video ads? If not, I sadly don't think it would be a possibility for the majority of us.
  20. I remember their sleazy and immature promotions. That was enough for me to never want to use their services. But maybe they've changed these days? I doubt it though.
  21. Hello Jason and welcome to the community! 🤗 Oh yeah, I remember Frontpage. I tried it a few times but I think this was back in the days when Dreamweaver started to become popular, so I just used that instead.
  22. Why do programming courses always have to start with Java?! Is it just a way for them to weed out most students? Because if their goal with forcing students to learn Java first is to suck out every last drop of enjoyment and excitement for programming from your students then they are doing a great job.
  23. Yeah, I feel like most website owners have themselves to blame. Of course, people are fed up with ads and of course they will use ad-blockers when so many website owners just completely swamp their websites with privacy intrusive ads.
  24. I must confess, I once thought about using an 8 inch tablet as a phone. But yeah, such a device would have just been too big to carry around effortlessly, so I quickly abandoned that idea.
