Since others seem to have forgotten to correct you, the actual term is "bandwidth" It's what Evita82 described it to be, but you can find a more elaborate explaination by googling. The bandwidth you want to know of is an internet term.

Or, well, a slightly more confusing explaination can be found on Wiki.

For those who want to undersand what bandwidth actually means, here's a good analogy which'll help with the explanation: http://academic.udayton.edu/streamin...UD/analogy.htm

Re: Comments on: Forum Suggestions

I am new here and dont know if this is the right place, but I have a sugestion for a thread, and if its already been done, I again apologize. I have been trying to see everything before posting and I havent come across this yet.
But I would like to know what everyone thinks about Micheal Gambon's version of Dumbledore compared to Sir Richard Harris's Dumbledore.
If this isnt the right area to suggestion this, could one of the admins owls me and let me know where to go?

I think a new category should be added called "webmaster chat" or something like that, so people can ask for help,advice,urls for webhosts, talk about webdesign, etc. People used to do this before the rules were changed, prohibiting the posting of non-thread-creators. After all, the Potter Police can't answer everything.

There is a thread in the Leaky Cauldron Official Help Thread for Aspiring Webmasters , that could cover some of the help that people need.

Re: Comments on: Forum Suggestions

What's the Buddy List feature for? I can add people but I can't seem to view my own Buddy List. Am I missing something? If not, would it be possible to add a way to view Buddy Lists? There could even be a way of making them private or public, kind of like our images and such.

I'm not sure its purpose, but you can view it by going to the topic of any screen and clicking on the "Quick Links" tab, on the CoS Forums Tool bar (upper right hand corner is where it should be found). In there, click on "open buddy list". Your buddy list should appear. If not, you may want to refer to the Technical Dificulities thread.

We at TPP do try though

CoS has an addequate webmaster thread as it is, I don't think the moderators and administrators would want the hassle of a fully feldged webmaster area. Also I suggested something similar a month or so back and it didn't get through

Re: Comments on: Forum Suggestions

In regards to suggestions made we have a new area in the Muggle Studies area of the forum: The Actor as Their HP Character

It is for the discussion of the actors who play the Harry Potter Characters, in their performance.

Happy posting.

Re: Comments on: Forum Suggestions

Okay guys, this is my last one I promise. I know you guys might be sick of me, but one more chance?

Here we go. Instead of "The Daily Prophet" forum, call it:

The Newsstand
The Quibbler
Games, RPG's, Quizzes, Puzzles, etc.
Transfiguration Today
Projects, Fanart, Music Composition, etc.
Daily Prophet
Forums only! (cosforums, as an example, would go under here)
Which Broomstick
Other. . .
The Daily News (This is a Common British Newspaper, but if someone knows a better one, please request)
Fansites, JKR Rowling news and events, etc.
You see where I am leading? I think that is it and that pretty much covers all of the 8 pages of the Daily Prophet and organizes them neatly into five easy sub-forums so that if a person is looking for a peticular type of site, they can just click on which one they are looking or bsed on the explanation under the heading.

Good?

Edit: 8 pages, not 18 (my bad)

Also, we could possibly have another section for forums unrelated to HP. Though, I think I remember reading that it is against the rules to post a site about anything other that HP related, so nevermind.

Is anyone having problems with the way it's set up now that there would be reason for major changes?

It's been working quite well (for well over a year) the way it is, so, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
