Johannes, any chance that you could put in a PERL search & replace for whitespace on uploaded pictures and substitute with something like underscores or dashes?
Lots of people seem to be uploading files with spaces in them. Blech.

We use PHP here :)
Actually, never thought of doing it, but I can easily do that for the URL's people enter. I'll implement this with the other minor changes.

This is the first site that I've hit that uses PHP, well that I know of, and that's excluding the PHP sites. Do you find that maintaining a large base of PHP based pages is a management problem? I read up on it a bit, and it seems like it would be. I dunno since I don't use it, I'm just asking.

Together with Apache, they kick ass.
All of the forums go through a collection of about 5 scripts. The URL's you see are all fake and the PHP scripts parse them to find out what you meant. This way we can update the HTML for the forums in one place.
Plus, one of the PHP developers has an a4 and visits the site often, so if I really had a problem I couldn't fix (thankfully hasn't happened yet) I could always hit him up for some help :)
