    I remember when I acquired the site, previous buyer (not Diablo the 1st) was running it on a dirt cheap shared hosting with a manage layer called cpanel
    for those of you don't understand what means, it is basically hundreds and in some cases thousands of websites cramped into one single dedicated server
    with a management layer on top, basically a UI that translates user options into server command for those who don't know how to build, manage and maintain servers,
    it comes with many limitations, often time un-optimized and require additional resources to run

    when I ran through some stat checking sites, the speed was in the range of slowest site, behind 90% of all sites on the internet (don't remember the exact number)
    running the same checkers recently, result came in as 'very fast', sitting at top 5% of all sites on the internet

    Just curious how you feel

    on a side note: any feature do you want to be implemented?
    for example I was thinking a vehicle stat search, that will return all specific parts, rating, related news, reported issues, recalls, variations all in one page
    some of your might know I am researching vehicle to purchase recently, and I think this will be useful
    (let me know if such site already exist, and how do you currently find those information, as it will help me built the API)

    On a side note side note: do you prefer dark or light website theme?

    yes, like a catalog, you search for a vehicle by year model, get relevant info all in one page

    I know a website that has a lot of info, on a lot of vehicles, rare cases those infos are incorrect and they do not talk about news, recalls or issues. It just brings data about the vehicle. It's called automobile-catalog.

    Feels fine to me.

    Some of us are probably missing the Chatbox we used to have on the forum index page.
    Another nice to have feature would be some way for users to show what game they are playing right now, be that a manual text field that is displayed prominently, or even better -integration with PSN/XBL/Steam/Discord. If we know others are playing, perhaps we'll join them, take screenshots/videos, share them back here and create some more activity on the forums.
