FQDN change to hints.macworld.com

Jason, now tell me which of these four things you mention:
- upgrading the servers, or
- hiring people to edit or
- to produce hints, or
- improving categorizations
has contributed the most to macosxhints succes/status?
None of the above, it's all about the goodwill the people actually coming up with the hints perceive as receiving. Yes, some selection and some editing is necessary but the better the submitters are motivated, the better the submitted hints will be, the more in tune with what is needed to keep/make this a great site. I could not care less about categorisation and I certainly don't want full-time stuff 'producing' hints. Hiring more staff to edit hints certainly won't do anything to increase the submission rate.

Upgrading the servers and the software is certainly a reason that in the end justifies any means (but then we might just move all of macosxhints onto something like sourceforge if all we needed would be free server space).
