    I was thinking of creating this cool mod which would be something new on the forum scene, but after a lot of experimenting there is no web technologies available to create what is needed so I am creating this poll to see if it would be worth the time to create. =]

    JavaScript will not work, Java Applets will not pass security test and Flash is not capable of this either so I was thinking of creating a C# app which could be executed from Servers.

    Regardless if VPS/dedicated or shared, I guess most people here use a LAMP environment.

    Can your C# app be able to run on a Linux system?

    It depends, really.

    If you're a large and busy site, you should be on a dedicated server.

    Keep in mind that very few LAMP servers have the capability to run C# applications. I believe MONO would have to be installed to do it.

    I just did, but I didn't find it important since it was to gain information about xenForo user's to see what I would need to do to make my mod idea a reality.

    For my largest site, I run my own VPS from linode.com.. Loving it so far, for smaller sites I work with I'm using a VPS from Knownhost.

    I got a dual core but it's not very reliable... either too slow, or too fast

    VPS from ServInt.

    About your app: take a look at node.js, most likely it can do what you want and anyone with VPS or dedicated server can set it up.

    I know if node. JS, just cant handle what needs to get done. I am thinking either c++ or just java to power what needs to get done.
