Message Boards Expire November 28

Our contract for the Fan Forum expires November 28. Bravenet has increased the price, and I'm pretty sure we can get a message board service with more functionality for comparable money.

One problem with switching, of course, is that we would likely lose all of the old messages here. Would that devastate anyone? What features would you most want to see if we switch message board providers? Would it bother you if we did not have a message board at all? All feedback is appreciated.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

I would not be OK with not having a message board.

I like having a message board. I'm ok with losing old threads if it's too much bother although some have some good stuff in 'em.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

I would like an edit option on the new board...

Haven't heard from you in a while, yankeefan. Start posting again if you like these boards so much!

"message board service with more functionality for comparable money"

Let's do it.

"would that devastate anyone"

I actually think we should do all we can to try and save old threads. Perhaps we could assign everyone willing to join in the task a certain number of threads to save from a certain timeframe, to ensure we don't all run into the same things.

I don't even like the forums THAT much -- or more to the point, I don't have that much time -- but I'd like to help and see threads saved, and if there's anything I can do let me know. And if I can, I will.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

Let's move on to a new board.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

How does everyone feel about simply moving to Scout-powered message boards? We can add a general baseball forum to the FutureBacks Forums. It would be free and you can do a lot of cool things with them, including poll questions, rating posts and editing posts. You don't need any html knowledge to create links or format text. There is even an "Ignore This User" feature that Asher can use when Karl is getting on his nerves.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

So I am going to go through and save all of the threads that are 10 replies or longer. If anyone wants other threads saved, copy them by Friday and email them to me.

Re: Message Boards Expire November 28

Scratch that. If anyone wants a particular < 10 reply thread saved, just post the title of the thread here and I will do the rest.
