WEBSITE IMPROVEMENTS
« on: November 12, 2012, 05:24:04 PM »
The person who created this website, Mata Haze, along with 2 moderators (Andy H and Jim L) are meeting here in the UK on Thursday, 12th Nov 2012, to discuss the sslforum and hopefully make it better and more useful for all concerned.

Do any of you have any ideas about improvements to the website? If so, post a reply here and we will see it.

Over the last few weeks, we have had over 100 new posts (now 621) and the members list now stands at 82. The most views in one day has risen from 12 through to 30 and now stands at 50. This is a great achievement and proof that this site is attracting attention from SSL users worldwide.[/size]

PLEASE CONTINUE TO GIVE US YOUR VIEWS.

Regards, Jim Lassen (www.profcon.co.uk).

As far as internet forums go, this one is running smoothly and pretty standard I would say. I've been trolling forums for over 10 years and this is just as great.

The only thing I would like to see is the ability of attaching files/pics directly rather than via a link to a server, I realise this is a server/space related issue however.

Hi Stef,
thank you for your kind comments!

Currently the way the forum works is that it is ancilliary to sslmixed.com so they are sharing the same space.
unfortunately (as you have correctly spotted) there is an issue there, we are working in major improvements with the web designer but not all can be implemented as we stand (as they are expensive) but some (like localization of users) will in the nearest future!
Also if everything goes well and we manage to generate enough traffic here we might be able to rent more web space and allow users to upload files, but for now we are nowhere near Ge@rslutz capabilities.
but we might ....perhaps not soon...but...  ;)

Mattia.

Greetings Mattia and all SSL freaks, as we all know these days it's costly to have anything worth while. And if wasn't for for Mattia and SSL guru god Andy aka Sintech aka evil genius I couldn't be where I'm at right now with my project. And I think you both and everyone here for all there support.
So I would like to donate like $10 a month to this site for maintenance and other things expenses.
Please everyone here, you don't have to but with all the knowledge you gain from this place, I would recommend to all to help out. That's just my 2 cents. Big ups to Mattia, Andy and Jim.
Please post paypal info for donations.,

Great idea Myke.

Mattia started this forum right at the time I got my 4K, the timing couldn't be better.

I'm more than happy to make a donation if it helps.

Stef.

Thanks Stefan, this would definitly help out. I know Mattia,Andy, and Jim do a hell of alot around here. And its only fare. Its not fare for so much knowledge and time being put in to this forum for nothing and them spend out of pocket. I no their not here to make a  profit.
I've learned alot from Andy, he has always answered any dumbass  questions i have throwed at him, which is alot.. Mattia has done the same thing.
Thanks to all that helps us out. If i would ever win the lottery these guys would get a split..

Thank you Mattia,Andy, and Jim. Hit us up so we can donate to this great place of peace of mind and away from our wives...HEHEHEHE

Guys....I am overwhelmed (I hope the spelling is correct) about these sentences ...
really!
I must say that all this came about because of passion and as has been correctly stated before not as a profit making machine, so it's of huge importance that this gets recognized (as it is happening) that people like Andy and Jim are putting so much effort onto this!

We had the first "moderators" meeting today and decided to take on this donation suggestion and add a button to the forum.

All the offers will go into making this forum better and implementing all the things we need, as well as paying for web space.
It's great to have the support and it's great to have GOOD PEOPLE around here: let's keep it going and

SPREAD the WORD guys!

thank you.....

here is a quick picture of the HOBBIT MEETING today (just the place as we were too busy discussing to take a picture of us!)



such a LOVELY place!

Thanks Mattia, love the hobbit house. I could sit and chill in a beautiful place as that..
Anyway, good to hear about the donate button.
I will definitely donate all I can spare each month. I would really hate to loose this place.
Thanks Mattia, Andy and Jim..

I have just implemented a basic form of feedback called "Karma", its simple and works.
you can find it just underneath each member avatar, I suggest we use this carefully and rate actual "transactions" or "deals" accordingly, until something a bit more advanced gets implemented.

suggestions and comments welcome.

Mattia.

hello, I suggest you try a different web browser, I think it might be due to that, I am using an old version of firefox ( I have a G4) and safari and both work....
the webmaster will be happy if you manage to donate! :)
thank you!
