First off, let's get to the real questions...
- Web space for Archive members? Why?
A couple of reasons. First, I'm just a nice guy. Second, I like poking around with computers,
and I'm a heckuva lot better at it than I am with armour, so this is a way for me to contribute
something. Third, and really, fairly important, I got sick and tired of archive members being
unable to post images, just because the web space they had didn't allow image-linking
by other sites. I understand the reasoning of these sites, but it didn't make me any happier
to be unable to see a neat armour picture directly, or (worse yet) get told that "too much traffic has
occurred on this site." This is a solution.
- What are the catches?
I think (hope) that the rules and catches are reasonable.
Rule 1 - Don't abuse this. Don't throw pirated software on your page. Don't throw porn on your page.
Don't throw viruses on your page. Don't sell or give away your page to another person (i.e. don't give
out or sell off your account information).
Rule 2 - Don't expect me to drop everything to figure out your problem. You're getting this for free.
Rule 3 - There is no rule three.
Rule 4 - I may add a rule 3, if it seems that I have to.
- So, can I only put up armour-related stuff?
No. Certainly, I hope that you will put up armour-related pages or images, but there is no
requirement for this,
- I just want to put up armour pictures and link to them in the discussion boards...
I don't want to make a whole site.
That's not a question. However, it's fine by me. That's one of the reasons I created the server.
Okay. Now that we've got the real questions out of the way, let's talk about who, and how, people
can get accounts and web space on the Archive@Home.
