Re: BBS format

It seems to be an emotional topic with strong feelings on all sides. Sorry to stir it up in my first few posts. I've been subscribing/lurking for years ever since I got my Repeater, which I still have ;). Hence my bulging email basket.  I'm not bitching about it either. I enjoy the looper specific, and the occasional OT back and forth that falls through my loopergroup email filter.  I guess I fall into the flat category though when it comes to wanting to put a forum up.  Gmail is better, but its not a solution for many to many communications. BBS exist because they work for this type of community better than email. But if email is all we have, or will have, then so be it. Peace, 7

I say it like this. It's easy to bitch about things, but when it comes to putting your money where your mouth is, well that's where most people fall flat. It's a difficult thing for coders to begin a web forum. Someone could do it and call it loopersforum.com then those of us who wanted to switch, could. Those of us who love it this way, can stay here. It's just a matter of someone putting their mind to it and doing it.

BTW, this is not meant to go to just one person. I'm not singling anyone out on this. I'm just stating for the record that most people will talk...not do.

Ditto, This list doesn't word wrap for me and I can't respond with the same subject line. Many times I only get the first couple sentences and the rest runs several pages to the right. It is why my voice isn't heard here very much.

"But it is broke. Its 2012 guys, not 1971 arpanet. A BBS establishes  an interactive online repository that does not require every message to bounce around all the users. Its just grossly inefficient in storage and bandwith. Not to mention its multimedia limited.  I'm just sayin. Just a suggestion from the peanut gallery. ;)"
