Yes I get that part and I've heard the saying before. I don't understand what he means by it though.

These forums have a nice, clean feel to them. That's easily accomplished with either of those three forums I mentioned. The difference is ease of use and features.

If you're going to come here and call me a spammer because of your ignorance of those forum softwares, then don't even bother posting on here. phpBB2 and ipboard are not looking to profit from their free software. They are not trials, limited in anyway or contain any ads, adware or spyware.

Some of the benifits:

See who's online, easy forum management for admins, emoticons, pm abilities, themes, upgradable, more secure, etc...

If any of you would like, I can set up phpbb2 or ipboard on my own server and you can go to it and play arround on it to see what you think about it.

You said "these forums have a nice,clean feel" You are right,they do. I find your responses(the angry profane ones)offensive and I don't care what kind of software is used.What is important to me is that people are helped and friends are made and support is given. My life has done a complete turn around and I contribute much of my success to the friendly advise and accountability that is shared on this site. Staying Strong! Free2bme

The only point I want to make is if you look at the top of this board it states;

"URGENT 70.00 needed" hm if we are short finacailly why would it make sense to upgrade to something else.. Not only that but the way I see it is I appreciate all that this site has to offer and love it just the way it is. I don't need to change it to be happy here. I am quite content. I started coming here in Aug of this year and can't think of a day I haven't at least popped in ever since. This place has been a God Sent and I am overwhelmed with Graditude.. I think my biggest thing is I want to contribute financially and just don't have the money to at the moment.. But I feel like I should it has helped me so much!!! I cannot stand the thought of the board closing down because there aren't enough funds to keep it going, especially when I haven't contributed myself. I am more concerned about knowing that this board is going to be around a long time much more than the layout of the site. And really I have no complaints. Not only that but the SC did do some upgrades not that long ago. Babys steps..

OK. I start playing hardball now. As far as I can see, the only reason you are here is to show us how glorious these "free" boards are. I have not seen any other discussions you have partaken in here other than to tell us that "this board sucks."

Now, you can spout your statistucs all you want. I've been to many message boards, hosted by many different sites and generators. And "free" never means free. Registration is always done through e-mail confirmation. And these hosting sites are infamous for giving out the e-mail addresses of registering users to spammers. Even if the user chooses to his their e-mail address, it's still being given up directly by the host.

I have separte e-mail accounts for every single place I register to. AAC has never given out my e-mail to spammers. I know because that mailbox is always clean. Which is much more than I can say for 90% of the other message boards I belong to.

Seriously. What do you want here? You've insulted the web site, you've insulted the designers, you've tried to insult me (good luck with that.) Just come out and say it. What are you here for, if not to sell us on a new host?

The whole site is not going to change. The forums are the only thing that would get the change and it wouldn't be a bad change.

As for worrying about that $70 short of hosting payment. I've been talking to them about that as well.

Silence, I am done talking to you. You obviously are trying to do nothing more than put me down.

First off, you register with an email and have to confirm it in order to prevent spam bots.

Secondly, you would be registering to this site, if they havn't given out your email before, they shouldn't start now.

I have not insulted the web site, designers, or you. When I call you stupid, it's just an observation. You are obviously ignorant of how any of it works, therefore you are scared of it.

Anyway, http://www.niqdesigns.com/ipboard/ <--that is the test board I have set up. It's Invision Power Board. You have to register and you have to use an email address, but, you do not have to confirm registration through email. It's all explained on the General Discussion forum. Lemme know what you all think about it.

m3talc0re I would just like to say sitting back and not being in most of this convesation, being able to read everyone's responses all at once what I see. It might not be this way but what I see is others here are feeling attacked. I think that you have an honest and helpful nature I can see that you are trying to help. Problem is others myself included feel like when you come here and the way you put "These boards suck" automatically opens this discussion on a negative note. I think there could have been a more positive approach if you were just looking for feedback. Or what about posting a question asking others what they think about changing things and explaining them with a diffrent approach you probably would have been answered in a much diffrent light. I know how much the boards have helped me and it sounds as if you are claiming what is here isn't good enough. There again others taking that as an attack. Make sense? I can see where you are trying to help but it did come across in a very negative light. Shit the title alone irritated me I thought who the h*ll is posting this?? Yes that was my first thought.. Also something that is diffrent about this board is it is much more annonymous. Sometimes I wish it wasn't as much as it is but I also understand why and it makes it easier for others to share and not worry and people tend to be more open because it is so disreat here. I too have been to other boards. And honestly this is the only one I have continued to stay on for 4 months already. Because of the people not the software. So if others are open great if they are not then lets just enjoy it for what it is.. A REALLY AWSOME PLACE TO BE..

ALL MY LOVE TO EVERYONE

You can "go with him" all that you like, but you are wrong. You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are totally wrong on this subject. You are presenting things to people on here that just aren't true. If you think ipboard is do damn bad, why don't you give it a try and present me with proof of why it's so bad. You too camer, since you're with him and all.

Smiles, I understand what you're saying. I didn't intend for this thread to develope the way it did. There is no need to feel threatened. The help and discussions on these forums is great. The software is old and outdated though. Most likely, it's very vurnerable as well. Just think of changing these forums to ipboard as a way of making things easier. No, you don't "need" to change forum software, but it would be better if you did. As for being anonymous, you can still be on ipboard, you don't have to tell everyone your personal information.

smiles, since that's the first intelligent reply I've seen on this thread in a little while, will you register on the test forums I created? Just play arround on there and make a post and then come back here and explain to them that it's not so bad. It's a good change, if only I could get people to try it.

I was trying to approach this in a loving way from both sides and try and see the good in both.. Thanks so much for the negativity I just didn't think it was necessary. Sorry I bothered. I hope someone else might have gotten something out of what I said.. I did not claim to have all the answers but just trying to put things in a more positive and productive way. I also know that silence has been here a long time and he doesn't say a whole lot so for him to speak so strongly I know that it hit a nerve because he isn't one just jump in and fight with others. Like I said and if you read the guidelines it talks about "attacking others" you will find that is what has happened.

Okay I thought you response one before last was directed at me. I am sorry I again felt attacked. Well there is a lot of negative energy.. Feels like the air needs to clear some.. I am sorry. You see how easy it is to feel attacked and our first response is to attack back it's a defense. Also one of the reasons for this board to help us learn to stand up for what we believe in no matter what others thing. That we all have a right to an opinion. Again I apologize because I was trying to state things from both perspectives.. I also know that change is hard for most of us here to accept and there is a security in things staying the same.. At least here it's safe and we know what to expect. I don't think your idea is bad at all but I think maybe the feelings need to settle a little and this should be approached as a question to everyone instead of a verbally aggresive comment. Do you agree?

How the hell did you get negativity out of that!? I felt attacked when he called me a spammer, how about that? Yet none of you seem to mention that.

Instead of attacking me and what I'm trying to tell you, why don't you just try the forums? Tell you what, I'll even create a test user so that you don't even have to register!

m3talc0re I wanted to ask you one more question. What brought you to this board? You say you have posted here but I haven't seen any of your posts. Have you shared your story? I guess I am just wondering why you came here? How long have you been coming around? Since I thought you were new and this was your first post my first thought was you were telling everyone that you are better than.. Not a good feeling. I know all to well part of why I am here.. Just wondering what your story is tell us more about what brought you here. I think it is easier to take advice from someone when you know they too are not perfect and are here because they appreciate being here. I hope you see what I mean and how I think things have been interpreted..

I've posted in the thread about poetry, i've made the thread.. um.. "One more chance?" I think it is, and I've posted in a couple others, but I can only remember one by easf? I think is her name.

I came to these forums because I was depressed and about ready to kill myself. The one thing I love most in this world told me she's not in love with me anymore. It's all in that thread I made... Sorry, but I don't want to get into that, I try not to think about it.

Sorry to hear that. It does sound that you care a great deal for her. I have seen you post here and now on the "Awsome Poems and Quotes" and you mention her in a very loving way. Well when you are ready to talk I can't think of a better place to share. And that makes sense sounds like you are trying to do things to distract you.. 😉 I will respect you aren't ready to talk about it and I imagine at the moment it probably doesn't feel safe to talk..

For the moment I don't want to check out the boards for the plain fact that I don't want anyone to feel that I am taking sides. I was just trying to approach all of this in a loving and non-judgmental way. Not only that but the people here have become a special part of me and are in my heart. So at the moment I just want to let the air clear. That way I am (hopefully) not offending anyone..

I enjoy the love here to much..

I am not saying "no" just not right now..
