Though there may continue to be issues.


Here's the short version:

Our site is a php site, which I admit to having a serious preference for. However, the particular style of our site fell out of popularity with the php crowd and hasn't been supported for quite some time. This means that when it gets buggy, there's not usually an easy fix. :(

Add to that there is nowhere near the support for _any_ php that there used to be, and it may be time to make a switch.

I know: "We just _did_ that!"

Yeah, well, I'm not crazy about it either, but I'm practical enough to know when it's time to stop patching the hull and get a new boat. Combine this with the requests of late to return us to a more typical black-on-white format, and you have just another reason to swap software.

I'm telling you all this so that I can tell you this:

V-Bulletin is the current standard. Unlike php, V-Bulletin is _not_ free. It costs. Obviously, we don't want anything to cost the members money, and that leaves one option:

Advertisements.

Just get ready for that. I can't say how soon it's going to happen, but the next big change will feature advertisements. Just be prepared.

I can live with the ads Duke, if a new software helps with the spam.
