Buy us one.

There are tons of different reliable servers for the same amount of what you're paying now, I'm sure.

Well, quit the yapping and find us one.  Oy vey!

Have you guys looked at IX Webhosting or Hostmonster?

Both of those providers are shared servers.  We would be kicked off in a matter of days if we tried to use either of them.  We need a dedicated server and have outgrown our current dedicated.  I've got something in the works and we should be switched over within a month.

Currently we only use about 150-200 GB a month but BW isnt our problem.  It's RAM and processor, now we only have 1GB and a 1.6Ghz sempron.

since i like to use a variety of different sized photos in photo threads i have a request -- if it's possible.

i would like to see the 'preview' exactly match the final 'posted' version.

for example, sometimes a group of three photos fits fine on one line on the preview, but then when the final thread is posted one pops down. it's frustrating, i can never get a handle on why that happens. thx

I thought I would ask.. what about adding the possibility of "liking" or "promoting" someones comment?

Many times I have liked, or even just laughed at, someones comment. BUT I did not want to prolong the thread even more by posting a comment of "haha" or "McCleveland +1!"

I would like to be able to show my support or agreement, without worrying about taking a thread off-topic, or giving the moderators extra work when thread-cleaning.

If you want an example look at the comment sections over at Deadspin.

A "promote this comment" button, which would publicly show my support of a comment, is what I want to see!!!!  :) pretty please?

Is there a way to "ignore" certain threads so that they don't show up when I click "unread posts since your last visit"? It's not that big of a deal for me to skip over these threads, but it would be nice to have the option of not knowing when the Tea Party thread has another new comment.

There is a notify button which will notify(email) you when there are new replies, but I don't think you can pick and choose which threads show up in your view replies since last visit...unless you try to ignore specific sections, then it might work.

I want to see large pictures automatically resized, so I don't have to scroll to view the whole thing. I don't know if that happens in IE, but it doesn't in Firefox or Chrome.

"differing".... or "hateful"?  I would say that differing opinions can be found on just about every topic possible here on UO, and such differing opinions are what makes this such a strong site.  The political threads used to lean left, but now they actually lean right given the "ethusiasm gap".... and Scrabble's endless bombardment of far-right wing fringe op-eds :)  Discussion is always good, no matter how much you may disagree.

Hateful opinions are attacked and, oftentimes, removed.  Nothing wrong with being intollerant of intollerance if you ask me.  JMO.  I'm not a mod, nor could I or would I ever be one.

You may also find that certain opions that are either contrary to established facts or misrepresentative of established facts are 'shouted down' (if that is even possible on an internet message board).  But the forumers who make those posts usually are aware (I have to think) they are trying to mislead and deserve what they get.

Hi, people out there!

Your site seems to be the most active so excuse me if I just jump in with a topic:

I'm new and new to the Mid-West, Ohio, and Cleveland.  Just got a job ... I think.  Thought I'd try living downtown.
It looks like Cleveland is TRYING to rebuild ...
Where does one shop around here?  I haven't a clue!

Welcome talkwithmike.  You should check out the Cleveland relocation guide which I believe is in the 'City life' forum.  Maybe start a thread there about your relocation and any questions.  Your not likely to get as many responses here.

If your living downtown, Steelyard Commons is about a mile or so to the West.  It has all your big box store types.  There is a small grocery downtown on W 9th, but it is expensive.  Tower City has mall-type shopping.  The suburban malls are more popular though.

How about a +1 feature?  Just something simple where you note your agreement with a particular post.  It could even be opened up to guests.

How about a macro for posting articles? Where you can just fill in the blanks on a form for Title, Author, and first couple paragraphs? I would post more articles of interest if I didn't feel it is such a pain to format them nicely. I know I can just post a quick URL, but sometimes I'd rather not post than be sloppy!

My topic is Cross Posting

Many times an article may touch on more than one subject/topic.  Example:  The Cuyahoga County building sale.

Many times I want to comment, but I don't want to write the same comment on multiple threads or have to search multiple threads for an answer because a poster wrote his/her response in one thread and forgot to or doesn't want to post it again in another thread which deals along the same topic lines.

Or there are situations where people cannot find or are unsure where to post a topic because it crosses several existing topics.

Is there a tool that would allow you to auto link a post from a sub topic/similar topic to the main thread so conversations can stay in one place are threaded and easier to follow.

I know KJP often puts a "cross posted" disclaimer on posts, but as UO grows and projects increase, this could become tedious.  I know there are many times where I want to post a comment or response to something, when I've already commented, on the same topic, in another thread.  Then I have to go back to the first thread to find what I posted. 

I don't want the forum to become cluttered.

guess I'll post this here.  Can we try to set some guidelines for The type of links we post?  I think that, whenever possible, people should avoid posting links to mobile sites.
