Default Changing Message Board Software

I have purchased a copy of vBulletin to replace this old and busted phpBB.

Why?

Because it offers several new features.. and the main one I was looking at is increasing the number of message areas to support all of Canada.

This conversion is going on right now and will be available by Wednesday. So some things will change around a bit.

Default Questions?

Hi GregS,

First off, thanks for this wonderful forum. Kudos to you for all the hardwork you put in...I'm sure it's often thankless, but we really appreciate it. This forum kept us going through all our delays.

I know your plan is to expand the focus of building homes to across Canada. Will there still be neighbourhood forums too? We are moving to Stouffville, and we love the fact that we can talk to our future neighbours. Many of our issues are local/builder specific too.

Thanks again,

Cameron and Heather

The main advantage of moving is the fact that vBulletin will allow me to 'tier' forums. So I can have different levels..

Such as:

-Ontario
--GTA
---Milton
---Burlington
---Stoufville
--SWO
---London
---Kitchener
---Brampton

-BC
--Vancouver Area
--etc...

Right now phpBB only allows one giant flat list of message areas. And if I did all of Canada, you'd have to scroll for a while to find your community.


So all conversations and users will be maintained, plus the ability to add more without creating too much of a mess.

I have a few other tricks up my sleeve too.. That Toronto Star article in the weekend paper pissed me off to no end so I am on a bit of a rampage to get things fully operational again.

Greg,

Keep up the good work mate ! Like the others said, we definitely appreciate all the good work you are doing here, by giving people the opportunity to share thoughts, by asking questions and answering them as well for others.

This is the best site out there IMHO since new home forum packed up and went the way of the DODO.

Much Appreciated mate

England

ps: we need a applause emoticon, and a cheers one

Greg,

Any chance of turning [img] on? I noticed my signature is not working, maybe I have to change it now.

Great job Greg!! Love the forum and all the great info we've picked up over the past year. Any chance of correcting the clock, it seems to be off?

Thanks.
