    done! apart from the questionnaire here is some tips:

    1. Most people have high resolution and because of this the text goes from one end to another, which is hard to read.

    2. Instant Messaging, so I can instant message people on here.

    3. Have a facebook group of people on here, just in-case you guys decide to go bust. So we can all keep in-touch in case such an event happens.

    The only issue I have is with the survey itself:

    Yeah, while you're at it get a Perl writer too. See if you can get Matt Trout to show some neat stuff with Catalyst or something, or Tatsuhiko Miyagawa to show what Plack can do.

    Or get Zed Shaw to rant about CSS for the lawlz.

    John, from our FAQ's:
    Quote Originally Posted by faq
    Once you have been a member of the forums for 90 days you are allowed to add a signature to your posts. New users may not use signatures.

    Do not attempt to circumvent the 90 day rule by inserting a fake signature in your posts.

    Signatures are intended to help you to promote your site, business, or other ventures that relate to you personally. For that reason, you can't let others use your signature, or rent your signature out to another party.

    Create your personal signature in line with these requirements:

    Your signature's size is limited to 4 lines of 65 characters each. BBcode isn't included in the total number of characters in a signature.
    You can include links that lead to your site(s) or a product page.
    You can include a slogan (for instance, "UK's Best Hosting starting at 19.99").
    You can't include affiliate or referral IDs. (Links to Outwar and similar types of schemes are acceptable, as these are links to games. However, it should be obvious from the outset where the links lead to.)
    You can't use short URL services (such as TinyURL) in signatures to get around the points above
    You can't promote scams or make unenforceable offers (for example, "Earn $10,000 a month selling suntan lotion to dolphins").
    Pre-approved BBcode can be used, but must adhere to the following restrictions:
    Center and right-align tags can't be used.
    Code, Quote, PHP, HTML, Edit, Off Topic, Spoiler, Highlight, and HR tags can't be used.
    The largest font size permitted is size 3.
    Your signature can't contain images, but it can include smilies.
    Signatures can't be bought or sold, nor can they contain offers to buy or sell other signatures. This guideline includes linking to web sites that solicit the selling of signatures.
    Any attempt to include a 'hidden' signature will be removed and the user may receive an infraction.
    Note that SitePoint is a no-follow forum. You will not receive a backlink from your SitePoint Forums signature.

    Spikez: that doesn't appear if you click FAQ in the menu bar. You have to navigate to it via Your Account and Profile and then Signatures.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who, when looking for something and finds a wall of text, does /searchterm or ctrl+f searchterm. Do that for signatures on the main FAQ page and it doesn't come up.

    Completed the survey.

    What more thing I couldn't say in it: forums are good. But I feel some "Tree House Software Clubs" are also in order.

    There are two main activities: posting for wanting help or posting for wanting comments - debates. I think these two should be separated.

    Hm though often good debates come from what start as questions.

    Though on the other hand, if there was just Q&A sections, SitePoint could implement that points/voting/StackOverflow system thing that lots of people have asked for earlier.

    One thing I'd suggest... on the Products section of the website, add Romania to the shipping countries list too. I can't see it there.

    Hey there,
    Unfortunately there are some countries that we can't ship to, usually because we have issues with the postal system being unreliable (although I can't say for sure that that is the case with Romania). That list is currently under review though, so with any luck you might see Romania back on there in the future.

    In the mean time, if you have a PayPal account then you can purchase digital books from us. We will also make exceptions to shipping on the understanding that you accept that we won't reship at our expense should an order go missing.

    You can discuss this in more detail with our customer service team by emailing books@sitepoint.com
