Quote:Agreed; this software upgrade was a major step forward for this forum. VBulletin is an excellent software as well, but converting the data will take a very long time, and may or may not be worth it.
Hi, I second the thanks! While this version of UBB is a bit better, would you guys be interested in moving the forum to vBulletin? You'd be able to get rid of the funky URL for the forum and have a MUCH more robust and reliable forum.
Well I guess I'm the odd man out, I don't like it at all. It's does all sorts of weird stuff and replies to one person when you intend to address the group. Where are the smiley faces and stuff at? KW, we had not choice, we HAD to upgrade, the old software could not handle the volume. OK, the gremlins are now loaded, click, "preview post" and they will be at the bottom. Also, when you are sending a PM or "reply with quote", they will automatically be at the bottom of the page. We still have a ton of bugs to work out and things to figure out, so thanks for everyone's patience, Joe I'm not against change but I don't know about this. Plus I found the list was back up by accident. I just happened to click somthing on the ERROR page I had been getting.

I wish the mods would have given a day or two notice that a change was coming, I have been thinking something was majorly wrong in the last few days because they couldn't coerce the array into a hash. And I thought maybe that was the end of the BITOG board.
