    I was surfing the net and came by the McCartney website (sorry it is not very J-like, but as an old Beatleslover, I couldnt resist)
    They have a bulletinboard now, and it looks like it is a copy of the Freakscenboard.

    Maybe it is just the way boards are put together but to me it was kind a shock. Take a look

    someone pointed me to this classic amps page and it looked exactly the same. I don’t know where jeremiah got this board from but I don’t think he built it himself

    Yeah, Jeremiah didn’t build this BB. It’s a huge project to undertake, and why bother when there are several already out there. Now there are even some really good free ones that I like better than the UBB (which Jeremiah had to buy a license for.)

    We currently use UBB
    *note the tag at the bottom of the bbs
    [img]http://www.freakscene.net/ubb/powered_by2.gif[/img]
    UBB.classicTM 6.3.1.1

    Infopop (formerly called Madrona Park) was the creator of this style of BBS (the format of threads and such) and when we started hosting our own bbs @ freakscene it was still the big dog (and free) <img> . Now that the ‘open source revolution’ has taken off as such there are many free (and pay options) that are great as well (a few :: http://www.VBulletin.com [$] , http://www.infopop.com [img]http://www.qksrv.net/image-235842-10581[/img] [$], http://www.phpbb.com [free], http://www.ikonboard.com [free], http://www.invisionboard.com/ [free], http://forum.snitz.com/ [free], ) The backends are usually the biggest difference (flat file vs database | cgi vs asp/php…). The choice between the various options usually depends on the server capabilities as well as the designers knowledge of the language used.

    on a side note, we will be moving to a new bbs system over the next few days. All of the posts and members will be moved over so we should have little to no downtime <img> – We will not be moving the Private Messages though.. <img> We will leave this board up for a few days/weeks as read only after the transition so don’t be too alarmed <img>

    I don’t see how they’re alike at all? This is UBB classic, the other is VBulletin. :hmm:

    I know that those words are English, but I have no idea what they mean…..
