The particular issue I have is when guests are not allowed to view images, the file name is parsed into the ...

When to move from a shared server to VPS or dedicated server

I would like to hear from people who manage large PHPBB boards. How many registered and/or daily active users before you needed to upgrade from a good shared server to a VPS or dedicated server.

Working with advertizers

Aside from Pay-per click and affiliate link advertizing,
how do forum owners deal with companies or individuals that want to sponsor or advertize on their forum?
