For those with web knowledge: I have my own homepage. Even if the page isn't viewed by many people, would the very presence of a link to here help the search engine ranking?

From what I am reading, a link from an important page can raise the importance of the page linked to.... All of my pages are rated zero/10, except my Renaissance Faire pictures page, which has a webring link, and is rated 1/10. The Cafe Tropico pages are rated from 0 to 4.

That's right - and it is important to note that the scale used is not linear.

A link from a page rated "5" is worth, perhaps, 100 from pages rated "4". No one knows the actual figure - Google release enough information to understand how it works in general terms but not (obviously) the formulas used.

Remember, links from within the same domain work, up to a point too Wink

Whilst your doing a little studying you may want to read the article on Google Bombing on Wikipedia - if nothing else it highlights the importance of having consistant linking text.

I have added a new webpage listing the Ranks used on this board. It can be accessed from the side-menu.

Speaking of Ranks, are those in the upper levels going to get a little graphic anytime soon?

How can I properly flaunt if I do not have a shield or something? Razz

When did you install the whole language package? I now can make my board preference Icelandic or German.

One other thing.
If someone gets banished from Lewis Media forums, what does it look like? Do they drop you an e-mail, or do you just discover it when you try to visit the site, but you can't? Do they give you an error screen?

What is a "Lewis Media" forum?

I would avoid other languages on this forum. There might be missing words in other templates besides SubSilver.

The Ranks page from the navigation menu has been fixed...

For some reason unknown, the author of this ranks page put in a recursive subroutine call. For those who know what I am talking about, his setup was OK, so he avoided a stack overflow.... but the version of php we are running will not allow it at all apparently. Once I removed the extra call (which was redundant as far as I could tell) it worked OK.

LOL.... that was the rank I gave Amanda, when she first joined here.... She requested a regular rank though, so I took it away.

Hello? Not sure if this request goes here, but can we create a thread in the Theatre forum to comment on people's threads? I see a couple of requests but no action taken.

You just want to talk about my hair.. LOL

The problem is that the Theater's permissions are set so that only the person originating a given thread can post in it. A discussion topic would have to be set up outside the Theater. Query: Would it work to have a sticky thread in the Great Hall that would be our Blog comment topic?

Updated:

Yes! I love your hair! Laughing Very Happy Cheesy Grin

I don't have much hair these days, and even if I did, I wouldn't have the balls to go to my very conservative job with such fun hair. So I'm green with envy.

And I think that's a good idea. I'm a bit rusty on how boards work but you can have a comment thread in the Theatre with an link inside it to the actual comment thread in the great hall.

Yes, we could do that. But I'm a bit resistant to doing that just yet. The mini-blogs are still somewhat in the trial phase and I'm loathe to mess with them right now.

The mini-blogs are supposed to be about self expression. If you just wish to converse with someone over something then simply start a discussion thread in the Great Hall for now.

Yes, I've always told everyone to make good topics when they can, but sometimes a short conversation is all you have in you. So make the "hair" topic, do a few posts on it, and let it drift down when you've finished talking about it. If mandating thesis quality thread material was required here then we'd have a mostly empty board.

If someone says something in a mini-blog that encourages you to talk about it then pm them or start a thread. If they don't wish to respond then we all just move on.
