(I'll get to my question and comments in a second)

Firstly, I've been registered a while but haven't posted. Just lurked. So here goes.

It's very interesting that people pretty much flame AdminAdam. I don't think he does, or ever has, or will, abuse his admin abilities (I don't know him but I lurk alot and see how the forum is maintained). To state that editing posts (to clean fowl language for instance) is an abuse isn't really. Your freedom of speech is not deterred. That's why there are rules and limitations to, well, pretty much everything.

Younger people use this forum as well and don't need to see such things. Also, it's true, he has spent a good amount of time, effort, and energy into this site that he could spend elsewhere if he so pleased to. Don't flame him. He does a very good job.

Ok, now. There were comments about possible other free hosts to use, other forums such as phpBB. Several knowledgable users posted very good ideas.

Namely, the .com idea. I think Stupid Mario Bros deserves and therefore ought to have a central portal run by one admin and some moderators, with all the extremely awesome interactive functions such as the forum and chat all on one site.

A domain is $10/year and I have paid hosting of my own (I could buy the domain if people prefer that). So, is anyone open to an idea of having a .com site hosted off of my server?

I could help with design and setting up forums, chats (I know some very nice flash and ajax chats), and anything or nothing else that people would like. There are other great designers here I know but I'm also offering my services in any way I can. I hope they're half-decent since web design is what I do for my work.

As for the administration, AdminAdam founded the fansite and the forum so it's natural that he should continue to be admin, to plan the structure of the site, what forum he'd want to use, etc.

I know all that was lengthy, but I really love Stupid Mario Bros and I feel the series deserves a .com address and as a fan, I offer what I have to offer.

What does everyone think about all this? Good idea, bad idea? Forums, opinions, chats, site structure and other random comments?

AdminAdam?
