Some more changes

Hi Folks,

How would you all feel if I could find a different type of forum maker for this forum? Making changes on here is pretty tricky and BBB forums can be quite slow and buggy etc.

I would try and transfer as many of the posts across etc, but it might be a case of starting all over again.

Would that really upset everyone, are you all quite happy with how the forum works etc? I haven't been posting regularly for a while now, so I am not going to make any changes without everyone's say so

xx

I have also just changed the settings now, so that I get an email when someone wants to view the board. Hopefully this will stop just some of the ridiculous usernames we get when they aren't real people! x

Re: Some more changes

Another forum I use regularly changed from this Web Host Provider to this one "Invision Power Services, Inc" earlier this year.
Benefits all round, being a more up-to-date program it works faster, items are set out clearer, more intricate functions for users and editors.
My other forum has membership fees, which pay for the use of the forum, which is add free.
It was a lot of work for the admin to cross over only some of the existing information though. For the most part we started again. It took two or three weeks to iron out all teething and "education" issues, but flows well now.

I believe vetting new members, by regulars, and front end is a good thing. I recently deleted 163 user names. These members had either no posts since registering over 6 months ago, or under 10 posts and had not logged-in for over 2 years.(Too brutal???? Not strict enough????)
This actually cut the membership total from 283 to 120.

Re: Some more changes

Thanks Jill, I did the same myself yesterday. I used to try and do it once a month as most are just bots!

Re: Some more changes

You did too! Another 40 (ish) names? And I thought I went through it with a double sided battleaxe.
No need for thanks here, I have been doing this for a while now, well 6 monthly, as regular maintenance of this site, as duties befitting a regular member and adim rep.

Welcome back, the site has missed your input and personal touch.

I notice our BWS info section has gone, along with certain other links to yourself from BWS. Hope all is well with the BWS campaign. They do such good work.
I suppose the politics behind the scene, policies, procedures, sponsorship, legalities, HS&E, loyalties, etc, etc. must be mind blowing, and full time very hard work to say the least.

My own health is such that George has to do most of the Daz work, and, my word they never stop, always up to something. In the past couple of months they have "entertained" Mike Tyson, Stewart McKimmie, Jack Sinclair, The Alexander Brothers, John McRuvie, Neil Cooper and Frank Gilfeather. And many McBreakfasts(Grrrr..)
I have had to change my job twice in the last 3 years to find something that suits me, but, another job interview today...

How are you getting on? I know you had health concerns, along with No.1 son moving out, and No.1 daughter in time.
No word of Richard Branson building this space port yet, but, plenty about the run down of the base.(A couple of the Aberdeen Subaru club, a rally team, are based there). Must be hell wondering what next, we had it with the pay-offs of the recession this past year.

Re: Some more changes

Jill, if you still have my number - give me a call, it's all too complicated!

Re: Some more changes

I contact BB support and got the games removed off the front page. They are no longer available to update etc and I noticed that no-one was playing them any more. Am going for the cheesy Christmas Countdown now (which is tricky when taking time zones into consideration!)

Re: Some more changes

I dont mind if you want to switch Karen, sometimes this one can be hard to find if you mislay the link. I will never understand folk who register on a forum post once and then disappear into the blue yonder.....
