  • Public Community Server?

    I got one of those free websites from the post http://www.thieveryut.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=3363 , and I was thinking about using it for public thievery and nightblade forum community use. For people that need webspace for their avatars, drawings and things.

    a place where a people could upload images and things for displaying images and things on the forums and also maybe as a redirect site for all the new maps that come out. so often the new maps DL isn't redirected and it is slow as molasses. I would be willing to pay the $6 for the domain name. and i could setup the php stuff for uploading files in a controlled manner to the server. do you guys think its a good idea? if so, what should i get as a domain name? I was thinking something like PubUploadServer.com or something

    First off, you stole my idea.

    Second, I wouldn't waste your money on a domain name, if it's mainly for friends (which it should be, unless you wanna pay for extra bandwidth) a subdomain would be fine.

    Third, even though it's my idea, you taffer, I applaud you for doing something so nice.
    The only constant is change.
    (And I wouldn't have it any other way.)

      Well at least we are both good samaritans Im just a faster posting samaritan LOL. How many sites did you register for btw? I got 4 lots of phones and cell phones! Perhaps we could both do it. I was also thinking about having a BlackCatGuilds.com or bcg.com that people who wanted to start guilds could use subdomains for. Like TuF.bcg.com. perhaps for those that didnt already have a webspace. Could even use as redirect to their own site, making it easier to keep track of them all. just some ideas

        What do you mean... you got four? And what do you mean about the cell phones?

            I got 4 free webspaces. All you need is different phone numbers for each one. So my cell, parent's cell, sister's cell, etc.


            And the tuf thing was just an example when time for new guilds to form, many people dont have money to get hosted webspace. And free ones don't support forums, so you could use a subdomain for your thivery or nightblade guild thru the public site. So we could be xyz.bcpublic.com or something and that would be reserved for only xyz guild stuff. and then abc.bcpublic.com could be for the abc guild.

              Since these pictures are going to be loaded a bloody lot -- these forums aren't small -- make sure that this free webspace has both decent upload and no bandwidth cap. Either of those would make it annoying as hell.

                i believe they are 400Mbit so no prob. Anyone company giving 5gb, with php, apache, sql, wouldn't have much to gain by screwing the trial version people with a slow speed. But only one way to know for sure

                  I think its 500mb of space with 5gb bandwidth.

                    If that's the case, that cap is probably a bit low if this server was actually going to be used for more than a couple avatars.

                      yes, but i was referring to transfer speed. I believe its 400Mbit speed so shouldn't be any trouble loading images, forums, or websites.. (i hope
