If you're reading this, you've probably noticed that we've imploded/rebuilt/redesigned The Board @ VT. The old one was lovely and served us well, but it was essentially a "beta" version that never quite made it much further due to time constraints.

I've always viewed The Board @ VT as a message board equivalent of a 'boutique hotel.' All of our software is handcrafted and custom built - by us, just for you. It's intention is to to be intimately cozy and focused on conversational and informative chit chat. To that end, we purposefully set out to reduce the inherent noise generators found on most plug and play message board software packages. You won't see end of post html signatures, blinking and dancing smiley faces, monstrous animated booty shaking avatars, gobs of quote blocks, bandwidth hogging image and video embeds, trip countdown clocks and all that other crazy shit.

As for browser support, we've decided to cut the cord on supporting Internet Explorer 6 from this day forward forward on all of our sites. If you're running IE6, it's time to upgrade. Try Firefox or Google Chrome or Safari... or even IE7.

I'm still debugging and making tweaks, enhancements, fixes as we go, so I beg your patience over the next week or so as all of the final details are ironed out.

Thankoo!

 Chuckmonster replied on Tuesday, 30th September 2008

looks sweet and it works great with internet explorer... i think a regular style forum is easier to use though...

 Chuckmonster replied on Tuesday, 30th September 2008

a lot of folks are confused by the threaded comments, rest assured there is a method to the madness!

threaded replies (when you reply to someone as opposed to posting a response) eliminates the need for quoting chunks of someone's earlier post and pasting them in again just so you can add a dancing blinking smiley face.

I likeeeee for sure, but really I'm usually drunk so I wouldn't notice the changes.... snik snik. As long as I still get to be a jackass in my posts

 tdinka responded on Wednesday, 1st October 2008

All I can say is wa-wa-wee-wa! New design is awesome. Beyond awesome even. Good move with the UI, functionality etc. Feels very fresh, very clean.

 Atltrainman responded on Wednesday, 1st October 2008

Chuck, what about us Netscape users? Are you leaving us behind too? You need to think about IE6 and Netscape as being the browser equiv. of the old Vegas casinos like the Sahara and Riveria.

 Chuckmonster replied on Wednesday, 1st October 2008

Yep. Sorry man. They both run on the same Mozilla core so it should work fine. If it doesn't well... you're probably missing out on a whole lot more of the internet than this joint.

 rascal responded on Thursday, 2nd October 2008

Nicely designed, intuitive, and clean. Plus I like anything that doesn't make me think. Hey keno girl!!!
