Completely agreed with the list above.. and for Gotripperz.. long way to go.. but great effort bro... It is never easy to build a fully working community website but your effort speaks when someone visits your site. It is at par with any popular website when it comes to look and feel. Keep up the good work, one day Gotripperz will find its way into the list of others as well.
