    What would you do to improve SG?

    Granted, this should be in the feedback forum, but hey, not a lot of people go there. So I hope the mods won't mind this. Also, could you please sticky this so that all the members here can express their ideas as well as mention this thread in the tech forums so that they will have their say too?

    Well, for me, a different layout would be a shot in the arm for SG, more graphics but still easy for 56kers. Also, SG needs to update more, and I am already working on something. As well, SG could benifit from expanding the topics from networking and tweaking to computers as a whole while still covering tweaking as their main topic?

    I'd consider a beefed up reg process. Make it a bit harder, so's the nimrods that only wanna cause trouble won't make that effort. That, and all y'all send me money.

    You can always use the pictures that the company provides on their website... or use neweggs picture. Ask for permission is all you really needed.

    give us image sigs back and brembo has the right idea send me some cash too. I'd be willing to host the sig image myself so sg doesn't have to if I could actually use it.

    I'd like sig images back. I think it sux that we have to suffer because they always get abused. There is always one person with a 1MB sig pic


    Last year John did us the favor, and alot of people were grateful and respected the sig sizes.


    I say, warn them once, if they dont listen ban them for a few months. I mean its no big deal makin your sig smaller.


    #2) Dont let banned people back. Sure you let many banned people back, thats cool as hell! But they were respectful and waited out their ban

    Overall SG is fine, but I guess anysite/thing has room for improvement.

    I remember coming here a while back to learn aboput tweaking, and enjoyed the detailed explanations along with the tweaks.

    I'd like to see detailed writeups for the Win2K and XP tweaks, and what settings in the registry they affect, and why.
    SG was the best place to learn the in's and out's of tweaking, but doesn't seem to have kept up with the latest OS's TCP reg tweaks as far as ALL the options go.

    Let's get back to the roots, and explain the reg tweaks for broadband speed in the ole laymans terms

    I noticed that too and contacted Philip about it a while ago too.

    Well if it weren't for you and a handful of others, with your style of posting, I don't know if I would laugh at all!

    I would agree with this 110%. I don't know anything about XP and that's all I'm hearing about. Why did the world have to change, when I couldn't change with it?

    *cough* server busy *cough*...

    I'd find a resident in california where they have the insane bandwidth, and host our own server, where storage and ram are no longer issues...
