    Re: Time for an upgrade?

    I agree that the site doesn't need to have a particular style or look that makes it "updated." That said, the performance issues are myriad.

    Back Country Gallery just opened a brand new forum, and it is pretty slick. I don't have any idea how much work/money this kind of thing takes to set up, but it would be nice to have this forum truly and fully functional again.

    Thanks, Woody! I really like Steve Perry' work and signed up on the BCG Forum, too. But I'm not leaving this group!

    I have stopped using this forum as much as I used to, main reason is that I have issues uploading sometimes.
    @jdeg have you thought about updating this forum? Or do you have other plans?

    I've noticed that you've been scarce around here for a while, Scott. It also seems that traffic (posting) on the site seems to be down from what it was a couple of years ago.

    Please know it might be a while before he is able to respond. He is post-op and not sure if he was able to go home yet.

    I'm hoping that he has a full and speedy recovery. If you can, please pass my hopes for such on to him.

    Re: Time for an upgrade?

    Thanks guys. I managed to break my leg when I forgot that Newtons 1st law DOES apply to me, and a golf cart WILL turn over if you are going to fast and try to turn. I had some metal put in to fix it. I'm able to hobble around on a boot for now.

    Regarding the forum software. This version of vBulletin is pretty dated at this point. The newest version is pretty bloated and not terribly attractive for the cost. If I update everything I'm probably going to move things to something like Discourse, which is free and open source. There's a lot of community support behind it too. There's also xenForo, which I've used in the past as well.

    In the meantime, I'll get to adding some new forums to reflect the newest camera releases.

    Glad to see you back, John! Rest up - and thanks for looking into adding the other subforums as well as considering updating the forum overall!
