  1. I've only ever had a trial of it and it was nice not having to watch the ads. I would never pay for it though
  2. We are a general discussion community aiming to help you get a little blast from the past. Cast your mind back to 2014. Life was simple. Forums were full of coloured usernames, special userbars and tight-knit communities. We want that back! So help us create it and let's have a great time. We want Discussion Hub to be a relaxed and calm environment. And to ensure smooth sailing, we have tried to avoid creating a huge list of guidelines and rules. Simply come on over, chat freely and enjoy yourselves. What do we have for you to enjoy? Upgraded Groups - Who doesn't love a special, uni
  3. I try not to be too strict since it's a general discussion forum and I want the community to be a laid back place for members to visit. Someone would have to do something really bad to end up getting a warning or a permanent ban.
  4. Always through my laptop (using Google Chrome)
  5. I count it towards the post count of my forum but it hasn't been a huge problem for me because the section doesn't have too many posts. If your forum games section has more posts than any other section of your forum, then it may be time to consider not counting it
  6. I would never consider it as most of my projects are hobbies and not something I would want to throw a lot of money towards. But, if you are expecting them to do a lot of services, like packages, then it may be better to pay them.
  7. I have never done it but I've seen a few different forums do it. It can be quite a good thing to do for certain communities especially if you are merging two active forums. I don't think I would want to go through the hassle though lol
  8. It's not a huge change but I do like the introduction of the thread types. That would be a great addition for promotion and webmaster communities.
  9. I don't mind it, to be honest. It's just a nice way to quickly say hello to the user. It usually doesn't take that much away from the forum itself so it's not a huge problem to keep it enabled.
  10. I love Android because I can just do whatever I want with it. I've customised it a lot to make it look great and I wouldn't be able to do that with an iPhone. That is the only thing holding me back from getting an Apple because I love how Apple continues to support their devices.
  11. A paid system is something I would never consider really because I feel that it would push away a lot of good potential members. Same with the invite-only system but I guess it could work for some communities.
  12. I agree with Puppuccino. The badges addon is a lot better for XenForo. It adds a bit of colour to your profiles. I've never really understood the point of trophies. If they added support for images to it, it would be a lot better.
  13. There used to be quite a lot of webmaster forums popping up but honestly, most end up closing after a few months. I honestly can't think of any large promotion forums right now (excluding webmaster ones). The only big ones I've been a member of are FP and Forum Hour
  14. Nice to see you here at Promotion Sea JennyorAlice. Welcome! I hope you have a good time here with us :)

    Jason Here

    Welcome to the forum Jason. I hope you have a great time here at Promotion Sea :)
  16. Welcome to the forum Shawn. I hope you have a great time here at Promotion Sea :)
  17. Promotion forums, like this one, can be used to promote your online projects. Do you think they are useful to promote more general niches? Or are they only helpful to promote services geared towards other webmasters?
  18. I think a lot of people go down this route especially for forums. Even with some funds, they tend to only hire volunteers because it can get a bit messy when trying to pay for moderators etc.
  19. How do you guys go about hiring staff for your online projects? Do you like to pay your staff or do you prefer to hire volunteers? Personally, I like to hire from outside because it can help bring some new eyes and new activity to the forum.

    Hello Andy and welcome to Promotion Sea. I hope you have a good time here with us :)
  21. Google AdSense is one of the most population options when webmasters think about monetization. Do you think it's a good option to make money from your site? Or do you think there are better methods than ads?
  22. I've done this a long time ago when I was younger and building forums all the time. It was a good way to get some content when the forum has just started and made it look better for guests.

    Hello everyone, Ash here. I am from London, United Kingdom. I'm sure a lot of users will already know me. I spend most of my free time gaming, browsing forums or just catching up on my favourite TV shows. I hope to have a great time here :) Thanks, Ash
  24. I would like to enter as well. Will the 15 posts be counted in the total as well? Or will it be the most number of posts after the initial 15?
  25. I've been fortunate enough to never experience this issue but maybe you have. Have you ever had your hosting company shut down where you either potentially lost your files or had to move to another host quickly? And if they did close down, were you offered a refund?
