    Hey Guys,

    I Love you service but here is some constructive criticism.

    When you reach 250 posts you should get an option:
    More Diskspace
    More Email
    More MySQL Databases

    Then again at 500

    And again at 750.

    I think we would gain a better amount of active members that way.

    Just a thought. Thanks for reading.

    I really like that idea! But know one is looking in it! If they did it would be awesome to have that! So many more people would post!

    well corey and staff can make more moderators and very strict forum rules! So if there is a spam they are banned instantly or suspended for 1 week! Casue its unfair we can't have this idea because of spammers! So instead if there are any spammers they are banned! Isn't that fair?

    The fair thing that they set up was the 30 seconds in between posts. Which in

    turn means that if you post exactly every 30 seconds for 1 complete day you

    will get about 2880 Posts. If there was no flood control then you could get

    unlimited amount. There should be just really active people as moderators to

    report these problems to Corey or another administrator to look into it.

    Exactly! Was wondering if someone can inform the staff about this thread to see the wonderful idea!

    I ban spammers. No warnings. I do not tolerate useless posts and the penalties for mass spamming is a 30 day forum suspension. First offense an infraction 2-3 offenses get 7-14 day suspension from the forums and so on.

    Not a bad idea but not sure how well Corey will like it. :)

    Hopefully Corey will go for it,

    I think that this would increase the activeness of everyone,

    Also it will enhance support (More than it already is :) )

    I Personally don't like it, as it will be spam, no ways around it.. And also, our primary job is support techs, and account techs, Moderation of the forums falls very low on our list, honestly, if my job duty was changed to just report spam on here, i'd be gone rather quick.

    I wasn't intentionally trying to spam in any way, but guess stuff happens. What I was trying to say -- the idea is could lead to spam in all directions. Each person would like this idea, but need to change perspective like Administrator view or Corey view. How can you make this idea, but keep the current standard of x10hosting. Even though, everyone paying most of the servers out of their pockets, ads, etc. This idea would probably requires more severs, bandwidth, space, database to get this idea going. To maintain this idea, you would need to upgrade more space, bandwidth, database constantly for people that wishes to upgrade.

    The idea is a good one -- don't get me wrong. Maybe increase the number of post that a person needs. For example:

    4,000 = Upgrade 1
    10,000 = Upgrade 2
    23,000 = Upgrade 3

    Certain number of upgrade can be issued for free hosting.

    This idea would just make the fourms useless for those of us who actually want to use it because there would be so much spam.

    There wouldn't be so much spam,

    Corey can put the 30 Second Flood Control,

    And then an at least 20 Character per post rule as well.

    Also im sure some of us active members wouldn't mind being moderators.

    He already offers domains and you get free hosting. You want incentives to post? Join a post to host provider.

    I am just suggesting another way to get more people active and to create an

    even better community. Why would I switch to another host? x10 is the

    Best host out there?

    This would be really cool, but isn't this what the credits system is for?

    Well kind of.

    With the credits system you can buy more disk space or bandwidth or anything.

    If that were the case then you would be right.

    I like this idea but implementing it and keeping up with it would be a drain. We're already stretched from server maintenance etc. and adding more features to each account individually (and manually) would be more hassle.

    Maybe in a more-stable future this would be great
