    I've canceled my VPS account for now and am going to make a few of my sites in one central location, here at the USMB. I've updated the links on the navigation bar to reflect this.

    Image Hosting Site is now:

    http://image.usmessageboard.com

    Free Text Messages:

    http://sms.usmessageboard.com/

    *New* - Free File Hosting!

    http://files.usmessageboard.com/

    The file hosting is a work in progress and I'm not sure how this will affect bandwidth, storage and performance. But for now it's an added benefit to those who like to visit our site.

    I will be adding more subdomains and features, and will keep everyone informed as I go along.

    Thanks!

    Additionally, should you utilize any of these services and run into any errors/problems, please PM me or update this thread. Swicthing to sub-domains may cause a few problems if I missed any updates within the scripts.

    Thanks!

    The file hosting is especially nice.

    Also, if anyone can think of any type of services/scripts/tools.... let me know and I can see if I can implement something. Here is what I'm working on thus far:

    Arcade site - just for kicks
    Blog - when it's running, will be looking for members to be a part of updating
    Help - question/answer page with tutorials & tips (computer related)
    Hosting - will host sites, self explanatory, free pages for USMB members
    Search - added search functionality, hopefully to utilize USMB & web together
    Webmail - I would like to offer free email packages to members only

    Feel free to offer suggestions, worst case scenario is that I will be too stupid to implement!

    :clap:

    I'll personally use the image, file, hosting, and perhaps blog as you make them available.

    For those of you that may have had images stored on imagehostingsite.com via the old paid system, I am in the process of restoring that portion right now. It's a couple gig of data so it may take a few hours. Once completed, the link to the old site will be:

    Should you use the old system linked above (also a link on the image homepage), I have deleted all the plans there and left just one. I can't imagine it getting much use outside of the USMB, so I have made all free accounts have a 2gig storage amount with 5gig of monthly bandwidth. Of course, if a bunch of people utilized that entire amount I would be out of business! I'll monitor the traffic for awhile but I think it'll do fine.
