No. And the person who owns the forum is not interested in changing things.

Re: an android app which runs this forums ???

They can't even get these forums to run correctly or behave correctly on desktops. Don't hold your breath for modern functionality.

I mean, for real, this forum is running on a software version that hasn't been updated since 2008, despite hundreds if not thousands of dollars of donations and ad revenue.

Make no mistake, this is a for-profit enterprise, and improving functionality won't help the bottom line.

Re: an android app which runs this forums ???

A full upgrade to the latest version of VBulletin is a modest $ 200.

$ 350 with Android and iOS support.

Really.

(Well, plus the ticklish and potentially time-consuming work of migrating the usernames, passwords, and old posts to the new software.)

How much of the userbase would benefit from mobile device "simplicity"? ( NB: Alot of the threads here are heavily textified.... One wonders how much real benefit that would provide? Feel free to add your expereinces people who've used Tapatalketc on similar sites. )

*** Current industry "norm" costs YOU $3-$5... or the owner $1000 ( Yes this is all a bit "not set in stone ) But part of running a web service is making it simple and ubiqudous.... The current "standard" IS PROPRIETARY AND COSTS MONEY!

It's a mobile app.
You don't have to buy a license as I understand it.
You install a plugin into your forum.
Then you register with the company on their web site to add your forum to their database for free.
Then you have two options, you can simply inform your users that your forum is available on tapatalk/forum runner and they can pay 2/3 for the app if they want to use it.
Alternatively you can purchase a licence, they release a custom app for your forum and users can use it for free. However you can make this a premium feature or upgrade for users if you like.
I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
Better security... ( possibly )
Additional features?

The way I see it... Most of the users profit too. Web hosting costs money... Setting up and pouring your heart and soul into a venture costs money and affords the creator just reason to benefit.

Pc's from the late early 90's onwards can view the forums fine ( except the youtube clips which are sparse anyways )

Feel free to PM me Trooper about your desktop issues. I have none.

Re: an android app which runs this forums ???

It works acceptably enough on my phone, and fine on my computer. I wish people didn't ever use font-size settings - but that's a minor gripe.

There's this company that has built software to automate the process of migration between about 50 different types of forums and blogs. They don't sell the software but do the migration for you for like $ 80.

Go to "addforums.com"

Enjoy that you can't access that while logged in.

Try using the navigation bars or logging in from the top right panel.

Hell, just try clicking 'chat' to see broken links.

It's hilariously broken because of a relatively trivial URL pointer that nobody can fix because David is simply milking this place for ad revenue, as with his other for-profit enterprises.

Not faulting him for that, but it is what it is.

The current standard of this software is improved in a variety of ways. This particular build of vBulletin is fairly vulnerable to a good number of exploits, many of which were patched in 3.8 way back in 2011.

Regardless, given the amount of money this website makes through ad capitalization, it's pretty sad that its been left in its broken state, but hell, it ain't my problem, so whatever.

Glad I read this. I was about to donate despite the fact that I suffer from severe ADD (probably SCT). I tell you what! No donations from me! THANK YOUUUUU

Re: an android app which runs this forums ???

Is this still true? That there isn't an app? I was wanting to access this forum on my phone but I guess I just have to do it in the browser?
