Anyone done or consider a hosting biz?
I'd rather avoid it - as two of my attempts were flops!   Anyway, a better option for me is "a hosting marketplace".  That's do-able.  All it takes is a lot of verifiable real traffic.

What's your opinion about GDPR?
GDPR sure received a lot of uproar when it became a thing. I'm not really a fan of Europe laws and I'm glad I don't live there. 
If you don't know what GDPR is:
Source: Wikipedia.
I've heard how some trolls used this to hit forums, saying how they are GDPR experts and demanded stuff from forum owners. 
Of course, I'm going to comply but to a degree.
I wouldn't let them take advantage and listen to their demand to delete all content they have posted on a forum/website I own. If they have their real first and last name, I would of course remove that. I would tweak my terms to ban posting personal information such as phone number, address, etc. Then there are the other minor things like privacy policy, cookie notice etc. 
So yeah, what's your opinion about GDPR and what are you doing on your website(s) regarding it?

How would you ''close" your site?
There may has been a time at some point in your website life that you've had to make a decision to shut down a project. Be it your blog, a forum or a website you were looking to get off the ground. For me, I've had to do that many times and admit defeat in my relentless pursuit of website joy. However, when you've had a community use your site, post and create content, how do you manage that stage of shutting it down for good?
 
Do you take a look at redirecting your forum to another which might offer them the same vibe/information they got from your site? Would you let people know that you're shutting up shop? Perhaps if you're so inclined, you may want to offer certain members the chance to take the website on and continue what you started. For me, I always at least let people know what I was doing and gave them an idea of places they could go to continue their forum journey. It just felt the right thing to do.

How quick can you get your site ready for launch?
For me, the actual process of acquiring my domain, hosting and installing all the software I may want is a relatively simple and quick process to get under my belt. However, when I tend to launch a site I like to go in with a stack of content ready to hit the ground running and hopefully entice people into my site. Last time I launched something like this I had about three weeks of content prepped and ready to go. Alongside all the research, time to write and make sure everything was good and ready, that probably took me a month or two.
 
What about you? How quickly can you get set up?

What are the leading social networking site scripts today?
I've seen blogging software. 
I've seen software to make websites. 
I've seen forum software. 
 
One thing that goes under my radar (or it's probably just not really popular) is social networking website scripts. Do they even exists? Because it surely doesn't feel like they do. It most likely is just me though.
What are some of the leading social networking site scripts available? Free or paid, it doesn't matter. I just want to know about the leading options.

What is your opinion of Python?
I have worked in python quite a bit and find its a very powerful language, what do you prefer about it over other languages, do you prefer the ease of how easy it is to learn or that now the future has come with AI (Artificial Intelligence), Most AI's are now coded upon the python coding language is this something you in the future will be looking into.
 
My preferred language is PHP but i also find i do enjoy python as it is an old language but still remains very powerful,
 
What do you think and is it a language you will use or are you currently using it, If you are what is you experiences with python and an insight on how you use it and does it work well.

Have you used ModX before?
I have used ModX in the past and i feel its a very different Content Management System other known as a CMF (Content Management Framework), for me it does give the freedom to play around and get the pages and content how i like it, i do feel to get extra features in with the add-ons some are simple but other are quite complex to work with.
 
Looking to see who else uses modx and  how you find it with any past or current developments, was it a challenge or was it a breeze and did you have plenty of coffee to get them developments to a live state.

Odoo Vs other ERP systems
I find Odoo is a very strong ERP system and hold my vote with how many features it holds in my personal opinion the core system can get pricey if you wish to implement more user and core premium features, how do you compare it to other ERPs out there for example my second choice would be ERPNext as a simple and yet again very powerful ERP platform to handle most of the business or billing day to day tasks and projects.
 
What are your thoughts?

Is this theme too weird?

I haven't seen light blue for the text area - but it seems to work, and be strikingly different!  Nonetheless, I doubt if many would want to copy this.  Would you?

What's your favorite OS?
Got to say Windows 7 for everyday use. I haven't used 8 or 10 for too long so I don't have a decent opinion about either, but 7 has worked for me through thick and thin. 
I'm not really a fan of anything Mac, so that's out.

Bringing out the BanHammer
I'm sure we're all the quickest shot in the West when it comes to throwing down the hammer at those annoying robotic spammers trying to peddle whatever pill is the latest fad, how are you when it comes to your actual members and those within your community?
I feel it is important to take it on a case-by-case basis as each circumstance can be different and produce different outcomes. I may have a member who was always in good stead but is simply just having a bad day and lashing out at other members and causing some issues. Do I ban them straight away in this instance or do I talk to them, give them a warning and send them on their way? It can all depend in my eyes.
What about you? How itchy is your ban hammer?

Live Streaming Plugin (Our own simple plugin)
We as an team have discussed an live twitch stream broadcast system that involves using the IPB software, we discussed using the pages app and even a plugin that's design for anyone who views the site to also watch there favourite streamers. On behalf of my community site we have an twitch stream page (it's not an plugin) that's an simple made up with pages and classic twitch link. Me @Empire and @Alan have discussed regards making our own live stream plugin that's an actual plugin.
 
We are aware there is on live stream plugin for IPB but we are thinking more in terms of an simple basic and clean plugin that's low price and for most community who are looking for something that's low end as well as it has all the following options that you want.
 
This is an idea that I like to see it an go ahead but we are learning on how the twitch API works as we are aiming to do it that way.
 
Down to the box:
List of all streamers who are on Mixer or twitch. (aim is twitch) The stream itself with chat box social media promotion and share buttons  Submit your stream button with permissions for who can view or not view and also what groups can submit basic options like view stream full screen or open up the stream on twitch.   Rating! maybe but lets see! but option to pin and future steamers.  
If you guys are interested or have more ideas or able to help then comment below and more thumb-ups we get then maybe this will be going ahead

Wanting Something for Nothing
Well, this might sound like some kind of conservative slogan - but it's true.  In fact, a  lot of people go for the cheap - when the cheap/free won't do it!  
 
In fact, to make a really strong internet blog/forum (as in promotion), it would take $10,000 to $20,000.   Anyone agree?

Are you getting tired of people using Wordpress?
Wordpress powers over 50% of websites on the Internet. I think news articles reported this before.
I've seen someone comment how they're tired of lazy webmasters/developers setting up wordpress, slapping on a theme and calling it George. He felt as if people should write up the code themselves and then publish their site without using a premade script found on the web.
How do you feel about this? Are you tired of seeing Wordpress powered sites on the Internet?

Engagement pods.
I'm trying to grow my personal Instagram account to do brand deals and what not. Yes, my aim is to be an "influencer". But I wanted to know if you ever tried engagement pods and if they actually work. I joined a few Facebook groups but it doesn't seem like people reciprocate the follows, likes, etc. Do you recommend pods and which ones?

Some admins don't want to go with paid hosting so they rely on free web hosting. There are several out there but would you ever use a free web host? And have you had bad experiences with one? Honestly, as someone that uses paid hosting now, I don't think I could ever go back to free hosting.

WordPress powers more than 33% of the web — a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.
WordPress combines simplicity for users and publishers with under-the-hood complexity for developers. This makes it flexible while still being easy-to-use. The following is a list of some of the features that come as standard with WordPress; however, there are literally thousands of plugins that extend what WordPress does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the WordPress code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free refers not only to price but also the freedom to have complete control over it.
Here are some of the features that we think that you’ll love.
Simplicity
Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Nothing should get in the way of you getting your website up and your content out there. WordPress is built to make that happen.

We all know this in the coding world where we have been on a project and we have missed a comma or a semi colon here and there or miss spelt a certain word / variable.
