After several hours booked studying html I am ready to start building a new ror site, called RoR complete. It won't really be complete because I will link to THESE forums, there will be NO section for cheaters, and for anti-cheaters, well, vlad's got that under control, so maybe we can just swap links. It will have sections for unit and civ stats, strategy posts (limit 5 per civ), macros, and any legitamite online content. I will also have a bug ES link, but in the form of a petition sent once per week. It may impress ES to see an email with multiple signatures asking for a patch, and people from the zone are more likely to participate in a petition since all they have to do is sign their name, and most of them CAN spell THAT...

What I need to know, is what webhosting service offers good performance and no banners? (or at least no banners that aren't in a separate frame) Thanks for any help.

PS. It may be a while, I'm still coming up with alot of the graphics, which this time will be more original, not to mention the content, and I want to have drop-down menus in my navbar frame, which I'm still learning how to do.

You'll get my signature on the petition. RoR is a great game, and it would be a shame to let it get hacked away by cheaters. I'd also volunteer to help provide some content, but then who would want my weird strats?
 
A good idea for the "patch RoR" petition could be to tell them what we want fixed exactly, and possibly how it could be fixed.
 
Lots of webhosting sites give good performance and no banners. The question is, do you also want it to be free?

I think "Homestead" fits your preferences.

hey wedsaz, I'd love to get your strats on my site, just one per civ please, and no balance propaganda. If you ever get you balance patch, you may resubmit accordinly

Homestead's free alright, but the performance was horrible. That may just have been their pathetic page designer (and now I'm doing a professional job) so I will try them out, but I was hoping to see some extra options. I believe homestead will let me have as many sites as I want, and that comes in handy, too.

vlad used clanpages.com, is that free? If it is, I'll try it out too.

I'm in no rush, I think I have to get some javascript under my belt for the navbar. If I do, I will simplify my mavbar for THIS site for now.

BTW, strat submitters will be able to submit graphics to be used in their strat posts, and I will provide an address that can take emails bigger than one meg.

Ahhh, go to www.gamehappy.com and on the left down a little ways click "Get Hosted!" its a really fast server(you can even get your own server that hosts only your site) and its all free with no banners or anything. but since your not going to be having a ton of downloads dont ask for a dedicated server... it would be a waste and just add time before you get hosted.

Bingo, Villy. Anyway, I'd be glad to swap links.

Hey, did you know that www.anti-trainer.com isn't really a paid domain? LOL! I did a little "hack" on it, that let me host there. Cool, eh?

Hack Vlad? hahahah, you wish, all you did was use NameZero and make a second redirection to clanpages to kill that huge frame.

Good Luck, God Speed,

I will be buying a couple domains, but I plan on putting up a lot of sites, so I can't afford one for every site. This site is kind of my wet-your-feet one, and I have much bigger plans. Thanks for the link villy, it sounds almost too good to be true I'll definately give them a chance.

ifn' ya don' sees me around for a whiles, iz because I'z workin' on 'dat site. It's a LOT of work getting the flash bar to work, because macromedia flash 4 is VERY poorly designed and lacks some clear features. However, I'z not gonna settle for anything less than perfection, and you'all kin view a piece of perfection juz as soon as iz done...

PS I'm a little tired right now, I just built about 1/50th of that navbar 5 times in a row...but it's gonna be beautiful.

actually I've already spent three days working on it, and that doesn't include the actual content I have assembled so far. I have the determination of a turtle and the intelligence of an amoeba. A bad combination really...
