And where do we go from here

Post #1 by Admin » 3 months ago

In July, this board will be one year old and there will be some changes. I'm going to depend on everybody registered here to vote, but most weight will be given to the people who have made an effort to be an active part of this board.

The options will be reflected in the poll.

I'd like to see CPB stay as it is, but I must admit that I don't understand what option 2 means. Do you currently have use of the license as part of your website hosting agreement? If you owned your own license, would that make it less expensive for you to host the site?

Where we are is a free license. I like it too, but we're starting to run into some hiccups and we don't honestly seem to know what is causing them, or how to fix them.

vBulletin is like every other board out there. Most boards use vBulletin, I don't really know the specifics of why. It just seems to be everybody's chosen favorite.

I've asked people who post seldom, and they seem to be having trouble finding new posts, new conversations, therefore feel overwhelmed at how they can participate. One such person thought Reddit would be a good idea, since I am a 'gold' member and can start a group.

As to the final option, I don't actually expect people to vote 'close it,' but I kind of wouldn't be surprised, either.

I've been running into Gateway errors. Some people say the site is running slow. If that can be fixed by switching to vBulletin, then we should consider switching, if we can afford it.

I like where we are, too. The only thing I can't find is my posting history, but search works well. As for Reddit? I once enjoyed it, but not any more, and seldom go there except to look up old friends. If you need donations, I wouldn't be able to help much...income very limited...but would try. I would be sad if it closed.

I didn't see that...will go look again. Wish I could do more to help.

I don't often get many (and sometimes zero) results when I try to use the "New posts" button, so I made myself a different shortcut that will reliably show me all of the recent posts.
