"ideological sense of respect and tact of a 5yo"

Server space is irrelevant when it's his own servers. Hard drives aren't that expensive. The bandwidth, is explained above. If you can't comprehend what is going on here, I'd advise butting out of the conversation.

I would say it is relevant. Space taken up by Halomaps et al is space that's not making as much money as other sites.

Which actually applies to this entire site, everything this site uses is being taken away from (I'd assume) more profitable websites. Obviously I don't work there so I can't say the actual impact, but I'd still assume this isn't the most profitable website. Ads are the only revenue source, and there aren't many, and many people use adblock.

You are suggesting Dennis puts Halomaps.org before the websites that he's actually paid to host.

You are suggesting Dennis puts his hobby over his income.

Please think before posting.

Is that not what he's doing? He's spending time and resources here that could be spent elsewhere. It's a hobby on the side, an "After 5" hobby. It may or may not cost him some amount of money, but it's time and resources that could be spent making money, but are instead spent on us. It's almost like volunteer work.

Now what I'm not saying is that he is putting this ahead of his work which is what you seem to be trying to say.

And obviously I may be wrong about any of this, as I am not Dennis, but this is what it looks like to me.

Mr.Dennis why is Halo maps mentioned thrice here?

http://www.uxbinternet.com/portfolio.cfm

Surely 1 proof of build along with a side note of interoperating modules should suffice.

I.E

Halomaps.org (which includes additional facilities such as a videos/art service and a forum)

Instead of:

Ineedawax.gov

Halomaps.org

Halomaps forum

Halomaps videos

Haloce maps

Hairdesign.net

Juicyfruit.com

It just feels like you were compartmentalizing every single feature of this website just to inflate the number of your achievments.

I'm not criticizing you, just calling it out as I see it.

8 times actually. There's the Home, CE maps, CE videos, CE art, H2V, movies, HCE Chronicles, and portal maps. I wonder why the forum isn't listed. lmao

I think it is quite honestly a mistake.

This is not philanthropy, this is a hobby that also generates some pocket change.

Of course I make some money off the website ads, that is why they are there but it is nowhere near what it cost to run the sites.

The bandwidth, is explained above.
Files download bandwidth peaks out at about 82Mb/s and averages about 48Mb/s. With that information you can easily go price a dedicated by-directional fiber line on a Tier-1 network to see how much per/month it costs. Our web and intranet hosting bandwidth is about a 1/10 of that since it is only pages.

I didn't design it.


I don't know what you are trying to prove here. There is a cost to run the site, it is quite high because it is bandwidth heavy, I make money from the ads to help offset it and I pay for the rest. So what is your point?

Rule one of the Halo maps forum. Do not insult the man who's paying for this website out of his own pocket.

Seriously guys. There's no point.

How long do you plan to run the website for? If you ever ran into financial trouble to host this site, why not have a donations page for halo maps?

Yeah so I reluctantly refused to make an account with this community years ago in annoyance of this but friends and gamers on the Xbox suggested otherwise and here I am.

Now I think some members of this community are a little out of control and do nothing but troll post and harass users.

Eg: I post a question regarding tags and I get responses that have nothing to do with my topic.

I can't get over how tight this little community is, being labelled and treated like an outsider from the old timer elitists. Sorry I made an account here wow.

Appalling attitude so far, appalling, great first impressions...

My welcome to this community was a "your dismissive and arrogant". Uh last I read I said hi and pointed out how many users are abusing others typing stupidity so how am I dismissive and arrogant? Sorry I pointed out the big fat negatives that are like... Right there for the world to see...

Dennis control your users. They're preventing new members from joining because of the bad rep they make for this joint.

Hey I'm the one being abused in literally every thread I post in so why don't you stop being so naive.

Clans of trolls keep harassing me everywhere I post so what the hell am I doing wrong? I know replying to them is but if they can act inappropriate then why the hell do we have forum rules?
