Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Errors when quoting

You'd have to think that's next for them.  Although I believe it took forever to go from 1.6 to 1.8.  And a number of features didn't transfer over. 


I've been impressed with xenforo.  If myBB doesn't improve, I'd consider that.  I haven't done a ton of research into it yet, although preliminary reading yields positive reviews.

I had to translate this from Mac-ese. On a PC it's a mid-click.

At least from a user perspective, xenforo is quite nice.  It does cost money, but not that much.  There is a myBB import ... but how well does it work, and how complete is it, those are the key questions!

It's actually Ctrl-LMB to open in a new tab.

Yes, it is.  And here is another one with the same software (but rather different look):

For what it's worth, I personally love the "look and feel" of our forum and I would hate to have to get used to a new interface. I'll use this post as a "Thank You, Spokes!" for doing what you do in keeping this place going.

Not if you have a middle button/scroll wheel!

I like the functionality and look a lot of it.  But I was really impressed with the mobile design and function.

Our mobile presence frankly leaves a lot to be desired.

Thanks!

IF a change were to be made, the goal would be to have the same look, feel, features that currently exist.

Reply evidently works for me as well. Thank you, I was scanning right past the button!
