Just like here, but with more things you do and talk about.
I actually forgot about it, I'll have to start posting there again. I do post at techsupportforum.com now and then but am starting to become a bit more active there especially with what's going on here.

The Lexus forum and the 9thgen Corolla forum generate a lot of traffic mainly due to sponsors. One night, there were 126 members online!!!!! Wow. That's what I suggested to David before. It's nice to see some banners up there for computer parts. We could use more to along the sides from top sites like Newegg, clubIT, etc.

I would really love for this site to be sponsored by NewEgg, we advertise them all the time.

Since David is the admin, he can email or contact Newegg for sponsorship. Since it's a computer forum, it makes sense to advertise computer related ads regardless of hardware or even software. Maybe some ads for colleges, scholarships, etc. seeing teh demographics here are teens and young adults.

OK let me get this straight, everyone wants custom avatars and custom sigs. But I am confused, some users are talking about a staff problem - what problem is that? are you talking about the hacking issue with brookfield?


Sigs like this are too big in my opinion: (Example sig from XS)

Not only the hacking issue, but the issues about him that have been said in a few recent threads. Also a new theme would be nice but I don't really care about that. Rep should go too, it's abused and the last thread had a consensus that people don't care about it and don't want it.

no, there talking about the general problem of brookfield, like how many people dont think he should be a mod, including some staff members.

just limit the size to 100x100, and off site hosting, and its fine, come one david, PLEASE!!!
