I know you guys hate change. But a bunch of stuff at bigscreenbiz has been acting weirder and weirder... besides me... it is a site that was built in 1999 so in internet years it's like 100 years old. I have been working on a site that will change the way we look and work. But it will work better. What do you think? Are you ready?

It couldn't be too soon! My little light bulbs next to each topic burned out weeks ago (must be old carbon arcs!), so I only know if I've read a topic by looking at the date. Bring it on, Mike... and thank you for making it happen!

I'm all for improvement, but I hope that we will all still be able to search and read all the old posts in the forums. It would be awful to lose the wisdom already recorded there.

This website is just two years away from being considered 'Historic'! dont change it -- we need more classic web houses out there!

saving the posts and the users regisrations so that it goes well is # 1. The forums are a truly antiquated program....

if there was one thing you would add or make better: what would it be?

I don't have any problems with the UBB board. Upgrading to a newer version might be a good idea, and some of the features they've added might be fun to explore. In any case, I'd agree that the archives here are an asset that should be protected. Whatever upgrade is selected should be able to include or import the past posts. However, whether to use UBB or PHP or whatever probably depends more on what you want to make of the forums.

Go for it, Mike. Just like you said, keep the old posts and registration info--just make it easy for us to update our info.

I always thought the replys in the forums should be listed with the most recent on the top. Just my opinion, though.

Keep up the good work, Mike. I will use the site no matter what.

Yay! Upgrades are always fun. I'm partial to vBulletin for forum software but whatever you use will be fine.

My eyes would appreciate not having a black background on the site.

Just don't let the 'upgrades' slow down page loading/forum speed for those of us on dialup.

The search function has always been unusually slow, which is why I believe we get a lot of newbie questions. It's tough to wait. A search should bring up all the matches from all the forums and topics at once instead of visually drudging through each of them individually. I'm sure this will be included in the new forum software you're choosing though- it's pretty standard.

Yes, a white background would help a lot too.

Who hates change??? No change = no progress!
