  • UBB's are so much better.

    I've always thought UBB's were the best, there user friendly (for old stupid people), the smilies are easier to insert, and so much more. I just love there whole interface more. Does anyone prefer the EZ Boards? They sucked IMHO.

    Keep the music alive,

    Other than the general slower speed, I preferred the EZBoard...

    UBB has lotsa cool features though... I could get used to it, other than the MARK FORUM AS READ problem... Aaaagh...

    UBB is a LOT cheaper to run for the ADMIN, so, I'm ok with it I spose...

          I've belonged to almost every type of message board on the net (Yeah, quite a few hours poured in!) including EZboards, UBB's, Vbulitens, and many more ( EL CHEAPO's ), but I just like the UBB's they have the best interfaces IMO.

            I don't like the layout of the post on this board. I find it confusing when I try to read the posts, but I suppose that I will get used to it. I do prefer the old board better. By the way, this is DLHelfand

              I'm hating this thing more everday. Although there are some very nice features on it and I thought I'd get used to it... The more I use it, the more I see how hard it is to navigate here.

              You post and have to hit home to get out of it and that send you out of the forum and in the main page. Yeah, great.

              There's no way to mark the forums individually. and the global mark function takes twice to work. and you have read the whole board and hope you don't miss something before your mark it all as read...

              This place is way too big for the style of board... It would be fine for a small board... not here though...

              The only good that will come of it is that like Troy I'll spend less time here as I hate it so much...

                I'm feeling pretty much the same as John (only better looking), but being the eternal optimist, I'm waiting to see if the admins can get all the kinks out and whip this place into shape. I figured it was just a matter of getting used to the new format, but the problems mentioned by John continue to be problems, particularly marking forums as read. For all it's problems, I found EZBoard easier to use, more intuitive, and easier to read.

                  Actually, I wanted to increase the number of replies on a page to like 40, but I didn't see the option.

                  Right now, my main hangout has been Ultimatemetal.com, and I love the vBulliten they use.

                      Yeah, it's been slow or not responded WAY too much, aside from the other issues...

                      I'm hanging on to the last few minutes at the EZboard.

                      Sucks that it's so much cheaper than the EZBoard....

                        EZ Board's functions can be emulated, if you can do the hand-coding. It's tons more work, but there are certain features that are sorely missed.

                        Perhaps the number of messages on one page could be lowered? CheeZee Board never timed out on me 6 times in a row like UBB just did.
                        Maybe it's because there are too many messages in one page?
                        Just a thought.

                          We are lookin into this now .. trying to figure out if the avatars are causing a decrease in speed .. we are also being put on a newer server soon so that may help ..

                            It's annoying as hell to get this message on every topic:

                            ;Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in w:\inetpub\wwwroot\jcf\jcfonline\www\ubb\noncgi\ca che- ???????\ubb_files\forums\Forum1\0000??.cgi on line ???"

                            '?' denotes different letters/numbers.
