So, I have taken all the tricks and put them in a database. Now we can sort them easily. So, what do you think of it so far? What would you like to see done?

Did you find any problems?

Let me know what you would like to see.

GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!! :D I like all the categorys.Exspecially how you categoryized all the hosts' styles. Just two things,It would be great if all the host could be on one page and if you used a bigger bolder font. But Great job I love it!!!

I don't know if the sites down right now or if it's a compatibility problem with my old Mac but I can't load the first page at all. It starts to load and I get a beige screen but then it locks up solid. The only way to continue is to force quit Netscape.

Another thing I forgot to mention was the email notification when somebody replies to your message.
Fer instance.....

... leads you to an 'oops' page (I think it's cause it reads 'forums' instead of 'forum' in the address.

OK.

I fixed the problem with the email page. And schmange, you were right, it was forums instead of forum.

the netscape problem was kinda strange. It did load after like 2 minutes. I changed the front page so that it works on netscape on my machine and loads right away. can someone please check the front page and any other page and tell me if they work on your netscape?

Also, fonts look different on different computers. Do other people think I should make the font larger?

the hosts are all on one page, where they are categorized.
So, I am not sure I understood that comment. The hosts on the front page are the ones who have updated their sections recently.


Thanks for all the help. Please keep the comments coming.

i put this snazzy little border around the big white space and netscape didn't like it. I took the border out and netscape loads again. Netscape is still slower than IE, but it seems to work.
