The new vBulletin software is really different than the old Groupee software, but it has a lot more features and once you get use to it, things are pretty smooth.

The new owners of the site know a lot about site operation and what soft ware package works best for this type application. The site needs to move forward and grow and the best way to do this is the new software.

There have been lots of questions ask and answered in this section. If your question has not been posted, feel free to post it and we'll to help.

vBulletin has perhaps more options, and i look forward to becoming aquainted with them, progress can be good,

but I can't help but grimace slightly every time I log on at how I perceive there to be more adds up and down the page.
AND they apparently are generated to the specific area from which you logon from?? ( i see SanDiego based business add )
I have to scroll a lot to see all the threads because of the adds, and also that 'notice' at the top of the page.
I will miss what i perceived to be the gentler layout of the old style without all the adds.

From my experience, the previous Eve/Infopop software seems to be going the way of Lotus 1-2-3 and WordPerfect. Most of the forums I frequent today use vBulletin software - examples include i-BMW.com (a BMW motorcycle forum) and turbodieselregister.com (a Dodge/Cummins truck forum).

I'm sure it's a development and support issue for our owner, Social Knowledge. With multiple forums to support, I would hate to try it without a common software platform.

i think at my shop we used PeachText as an early text editor, probably years before Wordperfect,
i can't remember for sure back to that era, but i think we had to peddle our computer's power too, just like the old spinning wheels

Before the change we had a "location" box for the thread writer.

I found this useful if I was trying to help someone with a problem.

It appears to be gone now-- It was part of the signature block. Any comments ? ----

Thanks so much for the links to the old smileys! Since I do the meal signups for the Texas Boomers, "Hungry" is one of my favorites. I have copied your list. Thanks!

Those links will not work once the old forum is shut down, but that date has not been announced.

We'll have to see if we can get some of those here.

The poster's location is listed on the left side of each post if they have listed that info in their profile.

Is that what you are asking about?

You know.. When I was a teen an "Upgrade" was pulling out the old anemic 6 banger and with the help of the proper adapt-a-kit drippign in a fully speced and milled big bore V-H with 2 or 3 x the HP of the old six banger

Of course, then Bill Gates came on the scene

Now an UPGRADE is addition of dozens of features nobody wants at the cost of speed and efficency.. He's taken that big bore V-8 and so loaded it down with ... refuse... that a Briggs & Straggon one lung engine can pass it up .

Well.. The folks who labeled this UPGRADE. Went to the Gates school of upgrades

I guess many folks wanted immediate success in going to the new format-

"Rome wasn't built in a day"

Hang in there guys and gals-- There are folks working hard at getting things up to speed -- There is no call for rude remarks .

So true, Max; things will work out. We still have the jerky pages that don't scroll very well on our laptop (w/ Verizon Aircard); no suggested fixes have worked so far. We'll just live with it for now, then when we get home to the main computer, we'll do some more experimenting with this one. Hopefully the main computer at home won't have the scroll problems...sure makes it hard to peruse the Forum.

My two cents here

As for the site load time and feel. I find the site operates much better in Firefox than IE. Just a suggestion to those who are waiting for it to get faster. We are working on speeding up the rendering but it is taking time.

As for some of the comments about too many features or why did the software get upgraded. There is much more to it than just features. The Eve platform was very restrictive. You could not edit the source code in any way. You were basically stuck waiting on the Eve staff to install security patches or new features.

There were many other server side issues that were just not very flexible.

I myself am pretty confident that after a short period of time, most of you will get used to the new paradigm and when you go back to a forum on the Eve platform, you will notice the difference immensely.

I'd like to follow-up on a comment by Max. I know from the old forums where Max was located. Now we have no idea where people call home. I had been able to make additional friends because I could tell where they were from!
Also at one time we could post in our signature what type rig we had. This helps when looking for information on a certain model MH.
In my opinion the signature area is sadly incomplete.
