Me for one and in my opinion probably the best console ever, well at least up there with the Dreamcast and the Snes.

well my first xbox site is still up, its name is xboxweb, or www.xboxweb.co.uk

Anyway...

The hosting was abit expensive and on the whole the site looks really boring. So I might be changing host and buying a new domain which if I did would be, xboxland.com, It will have xbox: cheats/screenshots/reviews/community and latest news.

why not use a freehost like www.netfirms.com
they are good for cgi,SSi sites but not for php

also http://free.prohosting.com is another good free site too

If you can host your picture images on your personal webspace then anything up to 900 visitors a day these sites could take.

I waz using free hosting but I decided I didnt want the advertisements anymore, so I am using cheap hosting like 750MB unlimited email accounts and lots more for only 32 a year

I have found a cheap host they have really cool control panels and give really professional forums, I cant set up forums I have'nt got the knowledge. I like Invision Board, I just have 2 cancel my old contract ;D

Thats not too bad, though you always have the watch the bandwidth, it might be a good idea to set up an offsite forum its supprising how much they use.

or better still why not join an exsisting site like http://www.xboxrules.com and get in touch with the webmaster, see if you can join the team there.

I prefer to work on my own butsometimes its better to be part of a big team.

I may be getting my own forum with this new host, they say it has unlimited MySQL databases and I can create an Invision Board with a click of a mouse. ;D
I am always up for joining a team or network the more affiliates the better :)

yeah you see what i do with my sites is use all the sites as feeders for my others and all in all my hits go up and hopefully with a decent forum i may actually build up a decent community.

well forums take a while to build and ive had some great forums but lost em due to losing my hosting at several places, but with the dreamcast site here and all the hosted forums,it should be cool.

I will soon have an invision board, slightly more complex than yaBB, I think I will also have access to PHPBB which is the most complex of all message boards.

Having said that when I first saw this forum I thought and still think its cool, its easy to use and generaly brilliant. I noticed when I was joining you had 2 members not only about 2 days later you have four, that is a growing community. ;D

I like posting here, the only my posting would be stoped is if I was banned ;D

wraggster
March 24th, 2004, 22:47
unlike other forums i would rather tell people to do stuff the right way rather than the silly policy of banning for no good reason .

I hate banning and I especialy hate power crazed admins, 1 of those places is hwkhelp.co.uk, he closes any topic which says anything he doesnt agree with.

i know all about power hungry kids and it can ruin a good site, i can say 100% that this site will have cool heads in charge.
