Cannot figure out exactly what the shoutbox is used for?

Does not let me post anything there....

?

I try, but message does nothing. What is this?

I say, delete that button and replace with link to the paying vendors.

Why are the paying vendors at the very very bottom of the forum?

No other links or mention of them.

Scroll down down down....eventually you see them.

Your base. It belongs to me.
No one used social groups when we have them on VB, why should I add them now?

The Shoutbox needs to be updated. Ive emailed the author as we have the paid version. Im just waiting for him to send it to me.

We pay WAY more than what you think we do to keep this place running. If your board is as big as this one and youre running it on a single instance then congratulations to you. We use a SQL slave server and the Enhanced Search is a resource hog on its own. It takes about a day just to rebuild the index completely. We were paying about $850 a month for our last server.

The ad stuff has been in place for months, I just need time to test it. Our original ad system didnt work very well trying to exempt usergroups. There is also a hidden forum that the staff and a few other people can see. I work a lot these days so time to work on stuff over here is mainly centered on updating stuff, fixing broken stuff behind the scenes, etc. I really have no desire to post or be involved in the day to day activity. Im the tech guy... these days, thats about it.

Far as the porn, thats Shane's call and we did the same thing over on SRTForums and someone turned us in.. even with it hidden and not being indexed, we had the copyright police all over us about pictures. I really dont have any desire to deal with that here.

Ive been running forums since the 90s. I built FJCruiserForums from the ground up, along with ChargerTalk and several others. They since have been sold off to Vertical Scope. This isnt my first rodeo.

Minus a few small glitches over the years this site is a cornucopia of information and has helped me many many times.

Besides, its free!

Thanks for all the work.

If you want social media then go to facefook. We have our our group there and you'll find it's not used by that many here.:rolleyes: It's just not worth the time to go there more than once or twice a month. While this site does have a "fun" side to it but is mostly about tech, not BS.;)

I don't think you noticed that we have different sections for just about everything you pointed out, and at the top on the right side, we have a button where you can look up new posts every time you visit the site. It's not rocket science after all.;) How do you think I find all the spammers that I kill each day.:D That's right, I hit the "new posts" button as well as check the new members.:rolleyes:

One other point here, is that we have such a big site that it actually shuts down the server, and it can last for a day, or in some cases, several weeks. Adding more crap will cause the site to shut down more often as well as other issues.:mad: When you make an offer to the owner (SGRIM) that he will accept, and you own the board, then you can make whatever changes you want.:ROFLMAO:

For now, the owner and the guy that does all the hard work behind the scenes, don't really care about changing things because they're working.(y) If they don't work then changes will happen, which is why we're using Xenoforums now.:p

The site needs work.

Sorry if you don't like to hear it, but it is true.

Should have enough resources and experience to make it better IMO.

No excuses.

The End.....

Charlie, hope a few of the spammers I've reported are in that total. That's pretty much how i find them.

Why dont you give me the URL for your forum so I can come take a look at how its done.

Im sure you have 37,000+ members and over 3 million posts so you obviously know more than I do so lets see what you got. Im guessing you dont have 1/3rd the posts and probably 1/4 the members and have NO idea what it takes to run a "big board", which at one point, when I cared about rankings, we were in the top 100 boards on the internet traffic and post wise.

This is why I dont post here anymore. Bunch of know it alls that dont know shit but want to sit around and run their mouth.

Maybe you guys can replace the NEW POSTS button with a Pizza delivery button.

Sometimes I’m sitting around sipping on Jameson and Ginger and I get the munchies but I’m too fat and lazy to reach for my phone.

Besides, i’m usually in my underwear and I stick to the seat and then there’s the times I wake up sticky and confused covered in Cheetos. It’s quite embarrassing.

Now I’ve said too much. :oops:
