Code: Select all

I say we get a botnet of a few million computers and ddos Digg and Engadget.  Then, after 29 days of consecutive ddosing, they will run out of bandwidth and we can rest easy for the following days, until it gets reset at the end of the month, then we will have to start over again...
It's a joke! We have not the resources nor the time. Though, I'll assume this post will be edited...

OMG I never ROFL'd so hard in my life.

I would donate a few dollars a month if the site would stop lagging/logging us off!

I have also had problems with loading times and login issues. Example: 90% of the time I can't log in here with firefox :?. I find that very fustrating. This would explain my firefox log into this site problem.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

I have no problems. Everything loads just fine for me. Same as every other site.

Does phpBB support pay-only VIP accounts? Some board software supports it, and it'd be a good way to help pay.

I don't want to make an "I'm leaving" thread, but I've sort of lost interest in this board. So if you notice that I'm gone, that's why.

I'm sure some add-on has been made that supports that function, but we'd have to take a look at how many unique hits we get and compare it to how many people actually sign up out of that number, then assume how many would be willing to get a premium account. I think part of the problem is the number of sites that link to the "how to make a pandora battery without a homebrew psp" thread; it has over 87 thousand views! (The "show us yourself" thread, while it has more than twice the number of pages, has less than half the views.

Besides, "some board software" is probably vBulletin, which you have to pay for to use legally. Kind of defeats the purpouse...

We'd probably be better off setting up a <s>begging cup</s> PayPal donation thing, or selling merchandise. T-shirts sound cool, maybe little toy plastic soldering irons for the kids...

Yes, sometimes the site runs fairly quickly; other times it takes ages to load a page and sometimes I get time out. Again, as with others, I have to enter my log in details about 3-4 times a week, even though my password is saved and shows it when I re-log in.

It probably only costs, what, $10 a month for the web site? divide this between the regular posters here and that's about, what, 5c each person? Rather than merchandise, how about a nice star against our avatar for people who contribute in a month via PayPal, if it comes to it for a better host? I am sure it will only be a few cents per person...
