Question

So does anybody here have a favorite Website? Here's one of my favorites that I found recently: AmIHotOrNot.com

I think it's kind of fun and funny at times. After a while you get the hang of it. Like, "Oh that's a '2'". And "whoa, she's hot. That's a '10'". I don't think I'd ever have the guts to put my picture up there though.

I see teenagers put their pictures up there too. Being a teenager is hard enough. Imagine if you're a teenager and you put your picture up there and a couple of hours later you check your rating and you're struggling at "2.2". Talk about a brutal blow to your confidence.

I have a lot of favorites. Over the summer it would have to be http://www.decktech.net. I would spend hours there each day. Right now I go to http://www.sitepoint.com a lot.

You know, I put my picture up on that AmIHotOrNot site. Several regulars from another bulletin board where I hang out were putting up their pictures for fun, so I put mine up there, too. I had completely forgotten about it until the site got mentioned here.

I ended up with a 4.6 rating.

I think everyone already assumed Sports Central was our favorite, so we listed OTHER sites. I am, however, flattered, Lee.

Some sites worthy of my daily visits:

http://www.sitepoint.com
http://www.ars-technica.com
http://www.e-sports.com
http://www.espn.com
http://kentucky.rivals.com

Site Point...... I could see that coming. They really sure do have a lot of articles and resources for webmasters. Their boards are cool too but I haven't been there in awhile.

Speaking of which, iFroggy, besides posting here I used to post at your board (SportsForums.net). I had the nickname, "BobbyHill".

So you ever going to get your board back up again or is it down for good?

Hey Spike,

I was wondering who that was, I tried to e-mail you, but never got a response. No, we are definitely not down for good. A friend of mine, Matt Kaufman, is developing a message board software that will be used, it is called PHPBulletin. Thanks for using the site, you will definitely recieve any e-mail when it is back up, which shouldn't be too long.

Thanks again.

I think I'd have to go with http://www.theforce.net, and http://www.fanfilms.com. Great stuff.

I would go to theforce.net but it crashes my browser. I hate Microsoft products! And Netscape is so annoying. I guess I will never see that site ever
