    Touchy subject probably. Have LHG or OB looked into getting this board out of the 90s? Do we need to have a fundraiser to make it happen? I feel like I'm stepping into the way back machine whenever I come here. Tapatalk inclusion would be nice too. I'll hang up and listen.

    I would suggest possibly sending them a message directly if you are serious about your inquiry. Posting it is silly as nobody else but them would have your answer.

    But this isn't your actual intention perhaps?

    Nothing will ever change, once you come to grips with that the better off you'll be. Money won't change anything, complaining won't change anything. Accept the boards shortcomings as what makes the board the board. [​IMG]

    ^ thanks. I broached the subject publicly in case it has been brought up before and I could be referred to a prior thread. If its a moot subject I won't belabor it.

    All in all I'd rather deal with this than the sophmoric postings that permeate Shaggy Bevo. The age of the average poster over there must be between 17 - 20.

    I really enjoy the fact that the forums here are separated and very well organized. I subscribe to OB and while the info over there is better and faster than here, finding it in the endless non football related threads in ridiculous.

    I like the format of Hornfans. Easy to navigate and is easy on the eyes. I guess I'm just old.

    With you Dillo. Hornfans is easily my favorite. Goes down and I get depressed. But ten again I am old.

    @CottonEyedHorn,

    What changes do you suggest? This board is 100% more readable than Other Boards IMNHO.

    I find absolutely nothing wrong with the software that runs this site, nor the look and feel of the site.

    After all, this isn't some video game where graphics and video reign. It's a BBS, for heaven sake.

    Posts are easy to read and easy to do.

    And it's true that there is a half-decent amount of maturity over here compared to boards like Shaggy.

    Don't like it, then move on.

    Don't hold your breath on an update to a site that last did a Senior Salute 7 years ago. Obviously, the motivation to keep the site relevant with the addition of things like tapatalk is lacking. Sadly, the civil war left HF as a shell of what it once was and the continued disdain displayed by mods towards posters shows no sign of abating.
