    I will not allow any egos as I will be the only owner

    And also I have some good news for all you

    That is

    I have decided to display Google ads on my listings

    That is editors ads will be displayed at top of the keyword and

    my or others ads will be displayed at the side

    and also in addition to this there may be a search box

    This will have some simple like another Google with ads

    Yeah, sure dude - that's an great idea!

    You just start making a script that makes thousand of html pages (oh my god, it's really important not to use databases), and WE ALL will link your project because it's just such an great idea. Why didn't anyone else on the forum think of starting just another directory?

    If there are so much data it will automatically take too much SQL queries and will cause too much load on the server

    and also 70GB is bandwidth limit per day I have in my shared hosting account but I plan to switch over dedicated server

    But I think the bandwidthn is enough for this site as the the page is of only 1KB so I need not worry about it and also i can have a maximum of 400000 hits

    so i think it is enough

    I have a DMOZ copy installed on one of my servers, and it's a huge server load. Huge database, required a special script to enable searching it without MySQL going haywire.

    And the foreign language categories are messy, too.

    They always are. Why those people can't speak the King's English like the civilized world continues to astound me. Life would be so much easier if everyone learned English. We wouldn't need translators or anything. We could put an end to war, famine, Babylon Translator, and Google domination in one fell swoop.

    I will not add foreign language category as it would be simply waste of time as clearly English is the lingua franca of the world

    and also since I do not categories my directory only depends upon keywords the server load would not be too much and also

    Each editor can separately login for their keyword and edit

    that is if webhosting is the category where "John is a editor " he can simply login with category and start editing so I can incorporate as many as editors in my directory

    but the only problem is that if editor is for two categories he has to login separately and edit for the categories separately
