    Ad Placements

    On a forum like this where you have a big header and empty space on one side, I would place a leaderboard advertisement right there since it looks better than having a single ad between the header and forum. I like having them in between posts sometimes as well

    Welcome to the forum @Fait. Great to see another familiar face here at Admin Forum :)

    Domain Expenses

    Yeah, it does fit quite well for a discussion forum though so I don't mind it. Plus, I don't like switching names/domains so it's something I'll just have to suffer through for a long time

    Discussion Hub :ROFLMAO:. There was a previous version of DH a very long time when I was younger which I ended up selling. That site didn't last long with the new owner who ended up merging it with another one of his forums.

    Help us Improve

    Nothing major but would be nice to have a thread in the website showcase forum about the rules and guidelines for the section. Apparently, I still can't post a thread there.

    I honestly couldn't answer this because I'm owned quite a few. Discussion Hub is the only one that I'm running right now though

    Domain Expenses

    I think it must have been around $20-30 for a .io renewal if I remember correctly. It might have been a little less but I think I remember complaining to someone about how high the price was

    What was the last App that you used?

    Used Trading212 a few minutes ago to check out the current prices of some stocks. Currently only have investments in Apple and Microsoft because I'm waiting for a few more to drop down

    Ad Blockers

    We used to have ads on my forum but we removed them. As someone that uses an ad blocker on sites, it's just not as effective anymore to have ads. I don't like sites that block users and tell them to disable ad blockers.

    Pre-Made Themes Debate

    I like using pre-made premium themes because they are well made and just cheaper to buy. I then like to customise the themes so it looks special and it's slightly harder to tell what pre-made theme was used.

    SSL Certificates and Hosting

    I have paid hosting with both USHost247 and InterServer and they both sort of free SSL certificates pretty easily. I don't have to do anything at all, it's all handled automatically which I love

    What are your thoughts on Post-Exchange?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with it as long as you have some genuine users on your site as well. It's a really good method of getting content onto your site when it's brand new.

    Forum Currency

    I know that there are some post to host forums out there that will offer you "free" hosting as long as you frequently post messages.

    Are you very active, or not so much?

    I do try to be as active as possible on my forum but it can be hard when you don't have as much free time on weekdays.

    Forum Currency

    We use it because it fits in well with a general discussion forum. It allows us to give users the chance to customise their profiles and posts. It just makes posting a little more rewarding as well.

    How confident are you with installing mods and addons?

    Pretty confident especially as XenForo makes it extremely easy to do. Simply upload the files and then activate them. Not sure if it's the same now but phpBB used to be awful with this.

    What are your go to XenForo Add-ons?

    Not sure what awards system we use over at DH actually but that, and the credits/shop system from DragonByte. In terms of the node icons, we just use CSS to add them. I love the Spotify addon from ThemeHouse as well, fits in very well with a general discussion forum.

    Banned Usergroup

    Just keep them in the banned user group forever since deleting them would create other problems such as allowing them to use their email again. Just like Nous mentioned, just have a striker through their name.

    What do you hate about being a Forum Admin?

    The aspect of advertising. I'm not the best at the job and I don't like having to try and find new methods of advertising to improve the user base of my forum. Would love it if my forum would just magically get users lol
