Default Jrcbd?

What's going on over there now? Seems that the web page has expired or there doing some more clean up work since the hack.

Yeah, they've been down for at least 6 hours now that I know of. No telling what's going on over there, it could be something like a power outage as that's taken them down before or they're fixing the vBulletin bugs like what this site has.

Not a word. Sometimes Dom will stop in here and let us know what's up. Rum Runner Racing is also down, a FE boat forum site. Both seem to be vBulletin run sites like this place. I know that Jim's has been plagued with a lot of problems for a few months now kind of like this place was last year. A lot of these forum sites use a vBulletins program which is also owned by Internet Brands who now owns this site.
I really don't want to guess any further than that as I could be 180 off. When Jim's or Int'l Waters goes down a lot of their members come over here for their fix. Yeah, I'm getting DT's myself! Usually this site doesn't like to discuss the competition but it's always been a plus for here when things like that do happen.
Some of what I typed above may be more than you're looking for but I thought that I'd throw in the little bit extra that I do know beyond speculation.

OK guys, enough with the DT shakes as they're back up! No explanation given yet as to why they were offline. I'm assuming that Jim, Dom or Mike will post something formal on the site later on.

Randy, there a primetime rule on this site. There are some words that you can use in here but its the context that matters as if they're OK or not. You can't use them against another member in a bad way for one.

Yup. down again. It seems like I was on there early this morning and it was OK. They never said what happened the last time they went down.
To get their fix they'll come here or go to MGB.

I don't recall having this many issues when they were on the other site. vBulletin run site seems to be nothing but a crash waiting to happen. Hacks, uploads, site crashes. I'd rather pay a fee than deal with the constant issues. Some people do a lot of business on Jims both public and private. Seems like it just gets a bandade and rubber band fix. Maybe the next poll should be about paying a fee to move to a more stable secure site.

" Maybe the next poll should be about paying a fee to move to a more stable secure site. "

A lot of us HAVE made donations over the years to help make improvements. But the disruptions are more frequent all the time. I don't think it's fair to criticize if you are just a "user" of a free site. For those that have contributed with help, advice, guidance, and the occasional $ contribution, it's still the most valuable resource in the hobby.

Frustrating, all the same!

Hi guys
perhaps its time for a complete new version of vbulletin to be installed just been looking at it its only $399 sure that wont break the bank and may solve all the issues, just a thought !.
Bob.
PS. even if half the members donated just $1 each it would pay for the software ?.

Frustrating yes. That's why I've always been a believer of you get what you pay for. That's also why maybe it's time for a small fee.

Do you think it's just the version or the product?
