Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

PostSubject: I'm about to cry   14/07/17, 10:48 pm

I started on EzBoard back in the day. I was here when we moved to Yuku. Compared to this, that was nothing.

This is the board I stated on:  http://frostknightsmessageboard.yuku.com/index.php

They fucking ruined it! Tapatalk ruined it! The board was dead, nobody was posting, but at least I could go back and have good memories, but they have FUCKING RUINED it!

Every single forum there had a custom background, banner, buttons and icons and they are all GONE! Completely and utterly. All of the custom CSS is just gone. What you see is the best I can do. I put the banner back and that only happened because I happened to have it saved. I've lost all of the background images, emojies, banners, everything. 

And their editing functions are crap. So even if I find someone who saved all of the images, I would have to sit and write out CSS from SCRATCH to try and replace it all. The base functions just allow you to put up a banner and change that cover image like on FB or Twitter. No option to do individual skins on each forum. 

The only reason I'm not crying right now is because I'm still at work. But I am just so disgusted with this. When Yuku took over they took great pains to make sure when we migrated that our board would remain looking nearly identical to what it was on EZ. But this new system leaves it so that I can't even recreate it.


My personal board hasn't switched yet, but I'm sure it will be soon. I"m just so upset.

I just can imagine how you feel. All those and hours you spent on it making it look nice.

I am sure you will get a new lease of life and start another one.  Advertise it and members will come back.

Hope you advertise it as I have never been a member of your forum.

Look after yourself and not worth getting upset.  May years ago I had the same problem and had to start again but have never looked back.

It's absolute chaos over there.  There is no one explaining the settings and how to find one's way around the system.  They have stated that there will positively be no help with customising.

Chris doesn't even know how to figure out the settings either.  She is only there to only answer questions such as "we don't know that yet" - "that will be coming" - "I will let them know that" and so on.

People don't seem to understand that Tapatalk, doesn't give a toss about the members.  They simply want numbers of members in order to get the advertising for the system.  Crowdgather never cared about the boards and still doesn't.  He has handed over the system to TT for them to run and him to get his payment monthly as a silent partner.

I'm sorry but I think that anyone that stays with TT are daft.  They will spend hundreds of hours fixing up their boards, angry, upset, disappointed, only to have to move on to another system anyway at the end of it when Tapatalk also goes tits up.

There is no money for owners of message boards systems.  They aren't going to make a fortune, they aren't going to become millionares.  The best they can hope for is to make enough to pay everyone and then have a nice little amount coming in for themselves.

If an owner of a message board system doesn't have a love for it and thinks only of money then they might as well quit now.  They will never become another Mark Zuckerberg.

Hi Joy

That board is dead and has been for a few years now. There is no bringing it back. I was just keeping it going for those who wanted to come back and read all of the old RP, stories and poems that were shared over the years. I could get the images back if I could get a hold of Zoe as I know she had everything backed up. But she's been crazy busy for the last year.

That group started in 2010. Its just so terrible to see it looking that way.

TT is never going to make money off of a system they don't take care of. It's absolute trash. Without the ability to easily customize it they will lose every owner they had left. I firmly believe that's why we never ended up being forced over to the "responsive" design forums that Crowdgather developed.

This is all you get in order to customize:

You can use CSS but still, it is not the same like Yuku. Yeah, I am the same way - I left. I knew it would not get any better and I was not getting the answers I wanted. There are a lot of boards staying and they are putting up great looking skins. But what is going to happen when the system needs updating and all is lost. People are not going to be happy. I closed my two boards and moved over here and members are coming to them. I have a Facebook one for my book club friends but other than that I said my goodbye to Yuku. I have been a member since gosh for a very long time. I was pregnant with my first child that was well 18-ish years ago. I have no idea. but anyway... onto new stuff.

This is all you get in order to customize:



You can use CSS - there are some great designs that people have done so far which is great for them but when the system needs to refresh or whatever they cannot promise your board will have that CSS design afterward.

Yes, you can use CSS, but that second image I posted is what you start with. A blank box. Which means you have to use an editor to find the name of ever single little piece on the board to find out how they've named it so that you can edit it. There isn't a base to start from and no real previewing.

And the fact that they can't guarantee that the CSS will hold when they push updates is ridiculous. I can't believe anyone is willing to stay on a system like that.

They have taken a system that had been around and going strong for ages and turned it into trash.

Ooo I kinda like the basic layout for it all actually it's a lot less confusing to me I hope that's how Proboards is going to be once they are done with the upgrade since they too are tide in with TT as well.

I don't mean to be a prude about it all and I do like how people who know what they're doing like Blue, sandy, and Martha just to name a few can design their boards but, there are some people out there who don't and I don't like it, my opinion is if they can't design a board then keep it basic or get someone else to do it for you for gods sake.

I gave up a lot and was self taught on coding but, that was many moons ago now, I just don't care and want to keep it clean and basic, light.

Reasons why I left Yuku and came here.

I have not heard that Proboards are going to be on TT sytem Linette! They give the board owners the option to use their mobile app yes, but as far as I'm aware that's as far as it goes and the boards themselves stay as they are. (fingers crossed for that)

I also don't think proboards will be handing over or selling up to Tapatalk. I think both proboards and forumotion are safe.
