Anything you'd change about OE?

Post #1 by JoeLouie » 2 years ago

There's no denying the fact that it's pretty slow around here, and has been for a long time. It's been a looooong time since we've had any new users.

Is there anything you guys would like to see changed on the site? New forums, or merging some of the existing ones?

The version of vBulletin that we're using is severely outdated and without purchasing a new license ($100+) there's no updating it, but I'd be open to switching to a different forum software if it was beneficial to us.

The other option is to just leave everything how it is :lol: I just thought it would be a good idea to see if anybody had any ideas that might help liven the place up a bit.

I know we go through some slow times, but I really love the forum we have now.... I am here every day. It is nice to have a place that feels like home. I dont mean to sound sappy, but this has always been my favorite place on line. Any time I have needed help with anything, I know I can count on you people. I vote for no change...... :thumbsup:

No Changes. This is a great place just like it is. I need this place and friends like you.
The Fact is... Forums are not as popular as they was back in the day,.
with all this new phone technology, texting, Skype, instagram, hash-tag, Facebook, and the other things that I dont even know about are taking over.
I still like this forum, and I still like all of you.
lets not change.
I change by not changing at all.

I'll take a look and see what I can find for different skins, but with this version of vB now being a few years old, I don't know how much luck I'll have finding something.

I'm with the majority here, I like it the way it is.

A nice and familiar place, with a small group of friends I don't see anywhere else. :)

For the non-techie types like myself with limited time and expertise this site is a revelation of information and camaraderie {Bing Definition:
friendship and trust between people in a group}.
Change is inevitable but if it happens so slooooowly that no one notices ... does anybody hear. [if a tree falls in the forest :confused: ]
I'll figure this out yet!!!
