  • New Forum Software

    As some of you know I have been looking into new software for the forums. The current one, while free and voted on my the early members, is just very limited and buggy. With all of the logout errors lately, I am ready to find a more stable home. The only logical choice in my opinion is to move to vBulletin. A few members have offered to chip in with the cost of purchasing this software, but I figured why not let all of you have a chance to support the boards if you'd like to.

    The total cost of the change is going to run us around $300. As soon as we hit that mark I will begin setting up the new forums. There will be very little effect for you all. The software we use now is upgradable to vBulletin so you wont lose posts, accounts, etc.

    If you would like to help with this transition, there is a "donate" button at the bottom of the page. Thank You to all that help make this board function and grow.

      Do we get to keep the emaw logo? I'm not donating until I'm assured we are keeping the emaw logo.

            Well worth the money to keep a percentage of the fanbase informed and Tom Light-free.

                I'll expect my mod status when my payment is processed.

                          With the current software the only way to embed videos is by using the HTML tag. Currently that function is limited to the Admins. I will look into this on the new software.

                            Is opening the use of HTML to everyone a security concern?
