    Well, I guess she wasn't meant to help with the on-going issues.

    Me too. I can't start a new thread either. Concidering the webteam hasn't made a posting on this forum since December 12, 2006, I'm not holding my breath on them fixing it either. Usless.

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Respect--these issues stem more from problems with the BB software than anything the end operator or user can tweak. When I first started as a Mod on Military.com, we were using the Infopo(o)p platform and had many of these same problems. Admins and Mods would kick gripes to Infopop as the software vendor, and they would implement fixes and patches on the fly (aka fix one thing, but break two others in the process!).
    Overall, for the number of members and amount of traffic we had, the Infopop platform simply wasn't stable, and eventually Admin decided to switch things up to Groupee's Eve community software, which improved things 10,000%.

    Unfortunately, just about anyone with a half-assed knowledge of Perl can write "forum software" and license it out...the truly good software vendors out there charge a hefty chunk. Small sites can't afford it, and big sites (especially commercially-oriented ones) don't want to cut into profits that much.

    Of course, if the "Powers that Be" had some good forum horse-knowledge, they would appoint a paid part-time Admin and volunteer end-user Asst Admins and Mods to help assist users, answer questions, and kick gripes to tech support, as well as enforce forum rules.
    I know, gosh surprise, there's more to being a good Mod than just having an itchy-twitchy "Ban Button" finger... *LOL* They'll figure it out someday, or the site will fall apart, one'a the two. Like the EMS saying goes: all bleeding stops eventually.
    My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."
