Forums

Does anyone run one that is just a forum by itself, like OT? How hard is it to ge members? Do you have to start out by making a lot of ae’s and talking to yourself?

I have, it’s tough, really tough. Yes, AEs, fake stats, all that jazz.. But it can be done.

The only way to get a decent forum is to be on top of an exodus from a larger forum like OT.

do these Google policy changes require a change to AdSense privacy policy?

Everywhere I go there are popups, "Google Privacy Policy is changing effective March 1, 2012." I’ve gotten multiple emails about it, and Google even posted it above my search results the other day to make sure I am aware that their privacy policy is changing.

Do I have to make any changes to the privacy policy page on my sites with AdSense or is this just related to how Google handles my data?

Youtube or Vimeo video size on homepage? Custom Sizes / Video Possible..

332×222 pixels.. I know I can get the video screen that size but can I upload a video that exact size, so it covers the entire screen.. It’s super small I don’t want any black sidebars to show.. So the video is edge to edge no border..

Bad chop but you get the idea, that’s the exact size I need.
Would that work, this is a bad question.. But I’m not really a video guy.

, please excuse the video, took that image off Google..

Hire-a-coder type websites

the oDesk thread below makes it sound less than reputable.. pharmokan mentioned that freelancer isn’t much better.

I don’t have a ton of cash and I’m not 110% sure I’m ready to hire someone yet, but I might in the near future.

Looking for a script/software that will scrape prices from multiple websites and compare them. Kind of like what the priceblink addon for firefox does.. but I want it to be a huge catalog/CSV (excel) of data. Not only when I type in a product name.

The Future of Websites? Where websites change based on each person? Live controllers.

Where you can browse a site and a person in the background modifies the site based on what you’re looking at and provides on-screen suggestions and live support and a walk-through.. All while being hidden, they can see your heat-map and cursor in real time. And where you look at a product page and they setup the next page or change the homepage specials to constantly reflect your interests.. All in real time.

A neural network is best suited to this type of thing.
