Default another suggestion

dont worry, im not asking for 10000 x 10000 avatars or to be the new admin or anything

basically the "Free Voyeur & Swingers" and possibly some other links should be deleted from the bottom of each page, and all the links at the top "Memory | Servers | Sound Cards" etc should be either fixed, removed, or replaced with links to newegg and computer hardware places, and possibly even useful stickies around the forum, such as installing linux guide.
just my 2 cents

I agree with this one. I don't expect the links bring in much income.

The links at the top could be made to point to the relevant categories at NewEgg... but what about the UK users.

Another suggestion going with what dude_se has said, how about having a tutorials forum, where people write little guides? We could possibly also submit them to sites like www.pixel2life.com and get lots more hits, hits is more signups?

Yea, it's just that people don't seem to ever find them in their relevant forums. I think personally a forum for all guides would be best. Only my 2 cents.

i would have to agree...this is a computer/technology forum and not a porno site...the links are just not appropriate to have on here.

I think pretty much everyone is going to agree on this one...

If you would get a PB for posting a link to a site like that on the forum, there probably shouldn't be links like that at the bottom of every page.

I agree. I tried to use those when I started, but I quickly gave up.

See, this is one of the changes we should be concerned about. This is a real change to ask for. I've been wanting this too.
