These forums really do suck. Why don't they use like vBulletin, phpBB2, or Invision Power Board? They're much much better, I don't get it? Lol...

It seems that you are unhappy here with all of us so why do you linger? As everyone has stated we are all here for support and if your not getting what you need here...... Just a thought.

I know that anyone on this site will help you in any way they can. All you have to do is ask. Please don't take this offensively, you just seem so unhappy with the forum.

I don't think the person who posted this meant that the forum discussions suck.

He meant that the technical-platform that was used for these forums presentation isn't the very best. THere's numerous different "forum-software" that allows things to be presented nicely and managed/controlled easily. That's the feature set he's talking about and nothing about the value of the group 🙂

I just realized that.

I think you may be right.

Sorry m3 if I misunderstood. I know you are new to all of us and we had been under attack recently by a few people who were very unkind and unsupportive. Because of that we lost a few people whom we all miss very much and I guess we are all a bit proctective of each others feelings.

Hey m3talc0re and austinguy!

Thanks for noticing that these boards are very differently constructed and not like anything else you'll find.

We built these boards, with our bare hands in notepad 7 years ago. Saved thousands upon thousands of dollars ($22,000, back in the day, to be exact - that was the quote), back then, they didn't even have stuff wrapped in plastic for a discussion board. They do now, and it still costs a bundle, and lots of time to install. People do take these kinds of things for granted, sigh.

Hey, if either of you are offering to set up such discussion boards and get it hosted and pay for the software package, I'll transfer the site and domain right over to the IP address that you get set up and running.

Hello m3talc0re,

You know I don't think you can just swap the technological platform of a site in midstream. Sure, there may be some structural changes that might be better, but the site actually does work, and is visually nice looking, compared to some.

And the pages actually load onto my old slow computer pretty darn fast compared to some sites which crash my system when I log on.

So maybe "older" technology is better sometimes.

If you don't like the threads, start a better one.

Good to see you. Hope things are well with you. Start a thread and chat with some of us who have missed your infinite wisdom.

site coordinator,

vBulletin costs like $200 I think, but don't quote me on that. phpBB2 and Invision Power Board are actually free and quite good. The host I use (which is also a friend of mine) has Fantastico on his servers. Fantastico is an addon for cPanel that makes it really easy for anyone to install scripts, like those forums. All you have to do is fill in a few text feilds and hit start. As for hosting it, I'll have to talk to him about that... You mean just these forums right?

austinguy, thanks for clearing that up with everyone, they was gettin' mad at me, lol.

Just thought I would get you some links:

vBulletin - http://www.vbulletin.com
phpBB2 - http://www.phpbb.com
ipboard - http://www.invisionboard.com/

Check their sites over because they've got demos and such for the forums. Another great thing about them is that the administration panels make things alot easier for the site admins. I think you'll probably like ipboard (Invision Power Board) most. It's simple to use, maintain and it has a good clean feel to it. I could skin any of them n/p...

Great. Now spam has moved here too.

Why don't you tell us what other "great deals" we aren't aware of...

Uh, dude, stfu. I'm not spamming. And these aren't "great deals", phpbb2 and ipboard are free. What, do you think they are some kind of scam? If you do, I'll be glad to prove it's not. Those three forum softwares are the most popular and widely used right now. Next time you go to another site that has forums, scroll to the very bottom of their forums. You'll see a Powered by: area and it'll tell you what software the forums are using.

stfu is not appropriate language, a$$hole. har har har, snort. (shut the f*ck up? come on. Profanity is the effort of the feeble mind to express itself, as my dad always said)

Anyways, I feel that that comment was aggressive. Just saying. "These forums suck" - lots of people come here who are, quite honestly, emotionally fragile. Drug addicts, people with severe depression and suicidal ideation. I mean, come on. You have to watch how you present any idea. I personally feel that your message would have been better sent directly to the site coordinator. There's a convenient little button you can push to send an e-mail directly. That way "they" (meaning the people who make donations to help fund the site and the ones that post all the time to keep it going) won't be getting mad at you and you can discuss maintenence issues with the person responsible for them.

An open-ended, generalized attack is pretty harsh. And tends to be an individual letting off steam rather than anything of substance. Thank yew and good night. I'm not reading this thread again, so don't bother to respond to me.

Well even if you don't read this thread again, everything was fine until he said that. I'm not going to continue an argument. I posted it on the forums because it would also let the members be involved with such a decision and share their own opinions on such an idea.

Anyway, site coordinator, if/when you take a look at those, what's your ideas on them? I could set up ipboard or phpbb2, but not vBulletin because of its cost. The closest to vBulletin is ipboard just so you know.

I'm confused. If these boards "suck" to you, then why are you here?

Everything was not "fine until I came along."

You come here and post only to say how technologically inferior this site is, and then you make recommendations for online services that (wink-wink) you've done work on/for.

I call spam. Plain and simple.

No I did not come here and post only to say how technologically inferior this site is. I've made posts before and I've been making posts. And I'm not offering online services.

Next time any of you try and post a comment like the one stated above, read all the posts on here first. I never offered any services. SC ASKED if we were offering it! And if he/she does decide that they want to upgrade the forum software, I'll help them along without asking for anything in return.

And unlike people like you, I do plenty of things to help people along and make things easier and better for themselves. As a matter of fact, it's costed me a few times, but I still continue to do so. If you think this is spam, then shut up and don't read it anymore.

I, personally, like these boards the way they are. And the bull-in-a-china shop tactic does nothing for me. I've dealt with you guys my whole life.
