  2. I started with SMF so I will always have a deep affinity and respect for that community. They were great, but the reason why I eventually "went premium" is precisely what you you said -- it took them forever to update. I know they're a volunteer community but the interest and passion is no longer there. This tracks with the broader forum market: it's going up the value chain to premium and enterprise platforms. Why start a new SMF forum with all the hassles and problems of hosting when you can open a new Discord channel or Facebook group? They've been cannibalized by social media platforms.

  4. What I mean by this is http and not https. SSL encryption. When I register a new domain, I automatically add SSL to it using Let's Encrypt as it has proved to be a quite handy took these days. How do you all feel about it? Do you think forums can only be trusted by the masses if security certificates are enabled?
  5. I've been watching some of the popular free forum software platforms that I used to frequently use. PhpBB... MyBB... Simple Machines... It seems like most of them are dormant with update activity, not even bug fixes. That always troubles me because most software regularly requires updates. There are always vulnerabilities and bugs to be found. The free software out there can't be that secure and error-less...can they? What are your thoughts on this?
  6. As mentioned elsewhere, the age of social media has put message forum management in jeopardy. Because of how harder it is to run a successful message forum in the social world, integrating psychology into forum management might be the way to the winning ticket. Look at sales, ads and business marketing - the marketer will speak a certain way to the target customer in hopes to sway that customer into purchasing the product or service being marketed. Do you feel the same approach should be taken with forums? We admins (the marketer) should be speaking in sense a certain way to the members (the consumers/customers) to sway them to stick...
  7. There's a lot of angst over the future of forums, but there will always be an enduring power of discussions, sharing, and learning among a group with similar interests. A lot of forums in the social, general, and lifestyle niches have slowly declined. What's your community strategy to grow? Are you building a content hub with best-in-class resources, tutorials, and knowledge base? Are you a brand or organization with an existing audience that you seek to serve?
  8. I think it looks better now very easy to use.😉

  16. Howdy Shawn 😀 You're a great example of a guy who can balance between the physical and the digital: to combine his love for outdoor hiking with online mediums and technological communication! Also, what's geocaching?? From a guy who has been running and involved with forums for many years, what's some advice that you would share to new webmasters? Joel
  17. Howdy everyone, Shawn here! I’m a 35 year old guy from southern Illinois - USA. I work in the QA management sector and on my days off, you can find me in the National Forest and state parks hiking, biking, geocaching and pretty much most forms out outdoor rec!

  22. It's going to impact the sites indexing in the short-term. In general though, Google doesn't care about the platform. It cares about the content, the speed, the user experience, the tools, and benefits you offer to visitors. Focus on that, and you'll do well regardless of platform.
  23. I'm very late but still happy new year!!
