Does anyone remember what program was used for the old chatroom? It was much easier accessible and user friendly.
That does not help Michelle,
this forum is now running on vBulletin
software, and has no compatibility to what we had before, which was a hand written software that a friend of Steve Saunders wrote and maintained for us.
When the forum was sold, they maintained that software for about a year, while their programmers designed new "skins" for vBulletin so that it "looks the same, works the same" but is not the same underneath the "hood".
The fact that it still looks the same and works the same, is because Steve Saunders had them sign a contract that they would not change the look and feel, or how it works.
VerticalScope has done a very good job of honoring Steve's request, and when I ask for new features to be added, they try really hard to get it done.
I am talking to them about improving how the Chatroom/Chatbox works.
it takes time to get answers back, a lot goes on behind the scenes of maintaining forums.
