  1. Sorry that was an automated topic but thanks for the donation. i set you up as donor, as you saw last night. This will expire from a month from now, but don't worry, you'll still keep the donor status, but you're be in like a previous donor group that has less privileges. Right now the only thing the current donors have over previous donors is fly ability. Things will be improved as we go. Added and changed, but don't worry, i'll still try to make the previous donors group worth it. Only diff you'll see is a diff colored name or something, but it'll still say Donor in the chat. anyways thanks again. Look around these forums, i really want to get these going. if you get a chance take a look at this, and post any ideas if you have any. http://www.madboard.com/topic/11340-what-should-donors-get/ btw, im muggerfugger in the server
  2. Hi jac0b711, Thank you for your donation of 5.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation.
  3. so basically you should've just not replied. LOL
  4. i think its time to do something to help get this forum going. I need some ideas for a contest based on the referral system, which i think will help get new users, and possibly this place going. There are many topics created about the referral system so far, but basically each member has their own referral link, and if anyone signs up using that link, they get a point. There are some anti cheat measures within the referral system so people with the same ip's cant sign up. so the same person can't keep using it over and over again. Also i'm going to try to block some of the known proxies to help stop some people from cheating with them. I need some more ideas such as prizes and rules. I'm thinking first place can be $100, or maybe just $50, and second place $50 or $25. Then i can probably do some games on steam or something. Maybe even give out like a free minecraft account to all the top 5 or 10 winners. All payments would be paid via paypal, and if the user doesnt have paypal, i can get them a game on steam,origin, or some other digital goods at the same value. Some of the rules i'm thinking about like i said are the no cheating. also if not that many people participate i want to reserve the right to cancel the entire contest. So people might take it more seriously, because its either all or nothing, errm or whatever. I just don't want to give away alot of money for nothing LOL. There are also settings in the script that wont count the referral unless the person who signed up is actually active, by making a couple posts. any ideas?

Some other contests i have in mind are post count contests, where people get points for each post they make, and the top poster of the month or something will get an award. But keep in mind that contest would be even stricter to cut down on spam posts. but thats an entire other thing. any ideas?
  6. I've always heard that its hard to run a general forum, which is a forum about everything, since it doesn't pertain to any certain topic, no one is going to come to get help, and join the forum, which i do understand. History of this forum alone would show that it was much MUCH more active when it was a Michael Jackson fan forum. However, that forum did die, people get bored talking about the same subject over and over, and it seems to only get the forum SO FAR, then people quit wanting to talk about the same crap, and there aren't any new people to get, since the people who are already interested are already signed up, and so on. Thing i hated about it being a MJ forum was the fact that it was only MJ fans, and not many other people to talk about other issues. I think we can still get this place going as a general forum. What do you all think about this?
  7. oh god in a good way, or uhhhh god.....
  8. Do you think the girl is hott ? I actually used a program/tool to generate them. didnt hand draw or anything k putting the cleaner one up.
  9. haha i think i came up with one i like more, and made 2 more characters for it im actually going to go ahead and put this one up LOL better than what we have. for now at least meh i just put it online, i dont know if it looks too busy or not edit: or maybe this. i removed the other guy and some of the background noise and made the opacity of the background lighter the menu shows better for sure
  10. Hi there, im looking for some feedback on the header of the main site. As you can see, the current header has two random slightly modified pictures of me on it. I really only put these on there to fill space, ha and to get the layout up. But i really didnt want to put pictures of me on there, so its time to actually changae it. current look: I created some weird cartoon characters a while back, and i was thinking of maybe placing them on there instead, ha. so i quickly threw this together, and i think its much better. Everything is the same but the background image. I'll come up with more cartoon characters to put on there, but what do ya think so far? I think my creepy cowboy fits nicely.. ha what about you? Also plan on putting a very faint background behind the header, like some secenry that you really cant see, but can. i think it'll help remove alot of the white area, without looking too busy.
  11. The host has some more people looking into this. I was going to switch the forums to Mybb (www.mybb.com) which is the only other forum script i like, but the problem persists on there, which means it is a server bug and not something with IPB alone. Hopefully they'll get this resolved soon. I don't even want to post on the forum til this is fixed ha cause i dont know what will go through or not.
  12. ha my host hasnt been around today. annoying. i hate being inbetween jobs and less money to spend on my sites. I might come up with something though so if the site goes down for a few hours its because im transferring to a different host/server.
  13. okay its not related to URLS because i just tried to make a reply without any links, and it's doing the same thing. VERY ANNOYING.
  14. It's not related to firefox. Firefox let me post it on other IPB installations on different accounts on the server. Also Chrome wouldn't let me post it here. Doesn't make sense that other IPB installations on the server in other accounts do not have the problem. Makes me wonder if there are some limitations on my account. I don't think its related to an IPB addon or hook. I really don't use that many here, and i cant get IPB support right now because the license has expired I'll have tto renew that once i get another job, ha but i don't think its a ipb problem because there are zero ipb errors, and ipb is good about giving an error of something is a matter. im pretty sure its server related. I'm thinking aobut testing some other servers soon. But in the mean time, if you want to post more than 3 links in a post, post it directly (www.url .com blah balh) without the bbcode tags. It only seems to break with the bbc code. I'll try to disable all the hooks and try it, but really there aren't any installed that affect posting. weird.
  15. I figured out that its the server not letting me parse over 3 links using bbcode in a single post. I can type the links without using bbcode and it works fine. Doesnt make much since. also seems to be limited to my hosting account because i can post the topic i was wanting to post here on other accounts just fine. Makes no sense. I receive no apache, cpanel, nor IPB errors. So i'm not sure at all what is going on. Maybe i'll have to scrap my hosting account, and manually reupload the sites. Might fix whatever glitches there are. I might even try some other server/hosts. Very weird though.

  17. i tried replying to the firefox addon topic, but i keep being set to the forum index, and its not posting my post. I'm not sure if its because my post is too large, and the script has a memory limit in php or something, or if its something else. It's kinda similar to the bug we had with the server not allowing people to post rapidshare links. What is happening to me is its sending me back to the forum index after hitting the reply/submit button, and not posting my post. Wondering if anyone else is having this problem? Either way i am currently working with my host to find out the problem.
  18. host said he resolved this problem now lets test.. before the server wouldnt allow us to write the link out with the / at the end... soo http://www.rapidshare.com/ woot! works
  19. I reported this error to our webhost and they are working on it. For some reason the server blocks rapidshare links. Maybe due to pirating, but either way nothing should be blocked, so hopefully this will be resolved soon. I'm missing your media posts!
  20. You have to post enough to earn the points to pay for the hosting. I'm not prepared to sell any hosting for actual money.
  21. I could actually set up the hosting using your own domain, but it would cost a bit more than the average hosting plan. Does your site have a forum on it? if so it might make it a bit difficult to post enough on here to earn the points, and then to pos ton your own. You can always PM me if you would like to discuss some custom/special deal.
  22. i'm not really sure of what you are asking about? Are you wanting webhosting for the mjackson.com domain?
  23. Would you all even use the web hosting???!?! I am going to reinstall the store sometimes this week, which will calculate the points you earn from posting, and help pay for your hosting. remember its MJHQ money so no actual money will be placed anywhere with this. Of course staff members will get hosting for free, as long as they are active here.
  24. The MJHQ store is going to return soon, and i think the hosting will be an item. Although it says "store", there is no actual money being exchanged, but you pay with the points you earn from posting on the forum. The reason i think that it'd be best to have the users pay by post for the hosting is that way only the active accounts will be filling up the server.
