the people at this site run a tight ship, and i've noticed that and I like it. Its good that there is one place to go on the web that is a no nonsense forum.
While I would certainly welcome any changes in the form of bringing the site up to the 21st century in terms of new features, customizations, and usability, etc. I would ask that you do so with great care not to let the spirit of the place devolve.
One of the other bigger forums, I won't mention names, but I generally avoid it as I've found that
- it is clogged with advertising - the moderators have been generally nasty - a lot of their posting interface is tedious. - posts cannot be edited in certain forums - filled with spammers
just the general feelings. so dont go all crazy on us WebmasterWorld! maintain your integrity.
