    How about a collection of animated martial arts gifs? You get people to volunteer and help with searching for and making them. Sounds any good?

    I think thats the reason we don't have a section of Mpegs, its not for a lack of material.

    We have frequent bandwidth problems, and it costs an arm and a leg to keep the site up and running.

    If money/bandwidth wasn't an object, we could have Mpegs and an animated gif section no problem.

    Most forums (including mine) support themselves with the top admins and webmasters paying along with contributions from some of the members. Is this what you do here.

    If money and bandwith are a problem, why not put a donation box on the forums? I'm sure many members here would contribute something each month.

    Another idea: How about belts to go with your Custom User Title similar to what have? If it's not too complex, you could make up a system for each of the main arts that there are fourms too (Aikido, Karate, Kung Fu, Taekwon-Do etc.), the way the art themselves have.

    I've been on forums before that used a "cyber-belt" system.

    I don't like it. It equates volume of posts with seniority or superiority. You've only to look at the top poster here to see how ridiculous THAT is :Angel:

    How much per month does it cost to keep MAP running?

    Cheers. :)

    More and more every few months.

    Ok, but how much is 'more and more'?

    Maybe, publishing the figure might get more MAPers to help with the cost.

    Cheers. :)

    And the donation box idea I stole is pure genius, especially with forums as big as this :D

    Re: Cost of running MAP.

    How does such a condescending post address my serious enough question?

    I am not a "ponce", so will have to take that as an insult!

    Is it "get at JohnnyX Day" or something?
