I would like if you used one user database on all of the forums and sites so you don't need to have multiple logins. Then when you registered at one site you would be able to login to any of your sites (including their forums).

Ajaxfreaks.com and phpfreaks.com did have thier databases tied together. However I dont think this is the case no more since the change to SMF.

However there are plans to fix any problems with the main sites and the forums.

Phpfreak is working on giving Ober and myself FTP access. We will use that to fix up the site here at phpfreaks.com etc.  After which I will see if he will give us ftp to the other sites so we can work on tying the login scripts together.  From looking at the SMF code, and working a bit with MySQL, it should be to hard to accomplish.

this is slightly off topic, but related to something you just mentioned steelman, but a lot of stuff around here seems to be dependant on you and ober getting ftp access, and you guys keep mentioning that phpfreak is "working on" giving you ftp access.  Just out of curiosity, lol... what's taking him so long? I mean, I, as i'm sure virtually everybody else around here, has setup ftp accounts many times. It does not take that long to do it.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

OMG... can we drop this already?  I don't know what is taking him so long.  He either doesnt' want to give it to us or he's busy.  Ron, please stop giving that as an excuse.  Just say we're working on it.  %$#@$

Well, we can't work on it until we get it ;) lol.  I don't know what is taking so long. I know he is busy, but how hard is it to give FTP access to two people? Hell, I could do that in five minute from a linux bash command line.
