Well With some many questions about " what host to got to " " what host is safe " ect ect. I was thinking would it be possible to have a "Webhost Review section" Mabye as a subforum under webhosting forum.

It would work the same as submited tutorials, a user would post a review and it would have to wait for moderation approval.

This way members could check here on ozzu what other webmasters and people have said about another website.

The rules would be similar to submiting new tutorials but mabye like this.

Quote:
Name of host

http://www.examplehost.com

The good

Any good feedback leave it here....

The bad

Bad feedback leave here....

Conclusion or advice on host?

bla bla bla


Quote:
Or mabye, Have something like this, to review a host

Host Name : test.com

Support : what you thought about support

uptime / speed of host : Any issues here

Hosting infomations : Bandwidth, cpu usagage and diskspace ect ect.

Then a review / conclusion


Just an idea, and the moderators and bigwebmaster you could make a better hosting review template layout better than me :P

What do people think about this idea?

It would invite too much spam. So, no thanks.

I'm gonna also let you in on a pet peeve of mine.. I cannot stand people who unecessarily put themselves down in whichever way. There is nothing to say that your template was any worse than what could have been done by any other member. Be proud of your ability, whether it may not be as good as some other member it's good enough for you. You don't need someone else to please you, just yourself.

I was not putting my self down, I was just saying if the staff was not happy with that i am sure they can come up with something better :P

And how would this bring in more spam? If it has to have moderation approval it cant bring more spam?

Well it would bring in more span for the moderators to go through. It might not show to the general community but it would make the moderators work more than it already is. However this might be something to look into for premium members? If someone wants to pay the $$ to get a membership to just submit spam more power to them!

Why does everything have to come down to premium members?

there could be a system where only members over a certain post mark could make themOr have a team of web reviewers

And how do you suppose new members will try to get to that post mark quickly? Spam.

Thankyou for your suggestion penguin. Rest assured Brian takes each suggestion seriously & may implement them when he believes the time is right.

Sometimes adding new features means adding to the bills.

I tried to help out by offering jokes to cover Ozzus bills once, but the bill collectors just laughed at me.
