Online forums have been growing and growing in the Internet for the past 5 years or so. There is probably a web site that has an online forum to talk about anything from software changes, hot tubs, to the ins/outs of sea diving.
There are a few things all of these have in common:
- Internet, Web based
- Use of PhP language
- Use of SQL Data bases
Beyond that, there is probably about a dozen forum software bases that are in use. Our old Spine-Health site used the
PunBB software. Others use PhPBB, some VisionPower, and our Spine-Health site today, Drupal.
None of these software packages are without problems. There are Pros and Cons from each of them. Sometimes, I wish we could combine all the Positives and eliminate the Negatives.
What a wish???
But I would like to know from everyone, what are the things you like about this site (the software only, not the members and objectives).
Also, on the other hand, what are the things that bother you about this site?
I am not trying to create a wishlist. We did that about a year ago to address member concerns going from PunBB to Drupal.
No promises or commitments in terms of taking negative items and working on solutions. But I will promise, that I will look at everything and we see if some of these can in fact be made and incorporated.
