    Cross post from KR. Not a bad idea to have our site available on smart phones, etc.

    Man...why do I bother??

    When I came back to this site it was hacked and falling apart. There were database errors and there was barely anyone here. I don't know if it was 2 years ago but it sounds to me like you are basically saying everything I have done over the past 2 years has been a waste. If that is what you think than fine but this thread is to talk about things that can make the site better and not what you liked before..

    Some people like features, some people don't. It is impossible to make everyone happy. Some people are never going to be happy no matter what is done.
    You've certainly done a lot to improve things. I remember that most mods were continuously deleting spambots, I deleted 60 accounts in one day at one stage. Tech actually turned off new memberships to stem the tide for a while.

    I agree with the point on active members being Mods and VIPs. Most of the Mods are busy these days with the next stage in life, only checking in occasionally. We do need to promote newer guys and keep the cycle of life going on the forum.

    Main thing I have noticed is that on some platforms this site loads very slowly. I don't know why that is, but I know a lot of people are having that problem. I have no problem at home or on mobile broadband, but at work broadband just doesn't like loading. Posting is quite often impossible.

    re: Tell us your MuscleMecca improvement Ideas

    Yeah i stopped posting 2 years ago and coming back its aweful quiet. Like any forum but you need members to actively particpipate in conversations. Mods need to have mixed bag of questions and little gimmicks to keep people chatting and arguing. I use to love fighting over high volume vs low volume etc. It gets heated but everybody gets in and has a say.

    I would love to see you interview members about their training instead of pro's. i don't want some juice junky telling me about their 20 set bicep routine which i can't recover from!

    Post controvesial articles to stir the mob

    Mecca use to be my favourite place to visit once upon a time. I have been on hiatus, all my fault, but i'm back and keen as **** to charge the forum, its gotta be a member driven effort. The features on the site are fine!

    re: Tell us your MuscleMecca improvement Ideas

    My bad and I am sorry. I get a bit stressed out and take things too seriously. lol Its all good..

    Thanks so much for all of the great ideas. I really want to try to make you guys happy with the new site.

    BTW - as some of you know, we have upgraded to a dedicated server and then we actually upgraded to a better dedicated server but the good news is that in January I plan on upgrading again to an even better dedicated server and at that point the site should have no slow downs at all. Part of the reason for the new site build is also to lean things out and make things much faster.

    Thanks again... This is really going to be a big help to doing this..

    If it wasnt for COACH, tkD, and Natzo, mecca wouldve had barely any updates. I say we all pitch in to send them prostitutes as a thank you.

    re: Tell us your MuscleMecca improvement Ideas

    Thanks guys,

    Yeah, there are some issues with certain browsers such as Internet Exporer. The site works best on Firefox but this will be fixed. In addition during peak traffic or when soime certain cron tasks are running the site can bog down a bit. I will be upgrading to another server early next year which will have a quad core and it should solce all the issues with the site slowing down.

    I appreciate all the help and I agree we need more moderators. I have written script to help with the spam and I have added mods as well but still ity is true we need more moderators to help. Once the new site is up or when we are just about up I will talk to Robert about getting more moderators.

    I would also like to give out some prizes and have some contests once the new site is up.

    Keep the ideas coming!! Thank you so much!!!

    You should enable level 1 gzip-compression for faster loading times and less bandwidth use.

    re: Tell us your MuscleMecca improvement Ideas

    Thanks Coach!!

    I was on another forum and they had a twitter like notification setup. You could say something in a post like "Hey these updates suck, @COACH." and it would send him a notification that someone mentioned him with a link to the thread. I think that's a cool idea. It could bring attention to certain threads where members know that other members have an interest in or there is a question posed directly to them.

    The server has gzip, most do.

    As for the VIP forum, these threads are not moderated so I do not why they would not be posted immediately. I will look into it though.
