Just a thought for this forum. On a forum I visit
almost as much as this one (www.tippmann.com)
has an option so the author or site admin can edit
a the post if they double post or did something
wrong so they don't have to post again. It also lets
you see the authors info (email, homepage, icq,
etc...) by clicking an icon in there post that way it
takes up less room on the screen.

Don't get me wrong I love this forum, but I just
thought I'd pass this along.

As it stands now, it would take too much time & effort to make the messages editable/deleteable/moveable and still function relatively fast & efficient.

We are possibly looking into a new system. Not 100% sure if or when we will use it or not--- this is total 'what if' thinking...

www.vbulletin.com - vBulletin is what I was looking at.

Does anybody have any past experience with this software? I've been reading about it alot, and it would have alot of features that could be used and appreciated here at ChiefDelphi.com (from both the user and admin standpoint)

Any comments about this type of system, etc?
Would you all revolt, and never come back if the forums were to magically change one day? I know a few of you have commented that you like UBB/vBulletin formatted forums better, with only the subject shown, and not all its replies. I like certain aspects of both.

Just looking for some more input & contributions...
Thanks,
Brandon

vBulletin is the "ish". I have been using vBulletin and UBB for quite a while now, and though they are quite similar, vBulletin is the winner, due to its speed. vBulletin will give you a hard time in the early setup stages, but in the end it'll all be worth it. You need a mySQL database to run vBulletin --just so you know.

Yep. Those are the reasons I'd go to it.
-speed
-mysql
-php
etc.

PHP is synonymous with speed...another good aspect you might, or might not have noticed is its template structure. This method of altering the look and feel of vBulletin decreases the amount of "code hacking" --not a bad thing, in this case-- that has to be done. The people at UBB did not realize this until recently, so one can see the ingenuity in vBulletin's implementation of a bBoard.

~Leave it to Joel to go off on a tangent.
