Thanks for everyone's input about the various forum software. I think it was pretty much unanamous that everyone liked the first new forum package (YaBB). I liked it too, but it was using rather old technology -- Perl and flat-files for message storage.

After I put the second new forum online (phpBB), everyone said that they did not like it as much as the first. I too agreed, but I sure liked the speed of php and MySQL database storage!

Later, I tried yet a third package (I didn't make this one public) and did not like that one at all!

So, as I was just about to throw in the towel and go with the first package, I came across YaBB SE. Based on YaBB, the "SE" version is written in php and has a MySQL database! It has all the features of the first forum that everyone liked and it is FAST!!

And, it has features that none of the other forums have, like the ability for users to upload pictures (something we take for granted on the current old forum).

So, here it is folks... the new and improved Blue Crab Archives Discussion Forum

Oh yeah, check out the calendar!! We can post crab festival dates, various regulations dates, etc., etc.!! Should be pretty nice having all that stuff on one calendar!

Oh, and one last note: Everyone will have to re-register as I am not able to import usernames and passwords from the old (current) forum. Sadly, we will also be starting off with a clean board (no old messages) for the same reason.  Sad

Steve:
Man, I thought I logged onto the wrong site.  Once I figure it out, I guess I will feel a little more comfortable using it.  For starters, at least I figured out that I would have to re-register.  Cool
