Wait, you have to pay for a star?

I think it's pretty clear VS DGAF about members or their piddly stars. It's all about Google clickthrough.

If y'all really have to make a statement, email VS corporate so that they actually know it.

It's just more nails in the coffin. Go on Fagbook and you can upload all the images you want for free. Done. Go to Youturd and you can upload all the video you want for free. Done. Come here, oh, you want to upload a pic, that's $20/year and it probably ain't gonna work right anyways, plus the fucking UI hasn't been updated since 2005 so yeah, it works really fucking smooth.

No wonder forums are just losing members.

nope, when vs bought the place they updated the look and the UI's been broken since then

don't fuck with vB2, it just straight works. Unless the forum is falfiles, then vB1.
there are actually a shitton of off the shelf add-ons that make it nicer without fucking up the user interface. Like livetopic that auto-updates threads as people post, spoiler tags, and fucking strikethrough tags and...

but yeah no, don't get on the updating the interface train, that always gets taken by the office types as "make it look like pinterest so you can't find anyfuckingthing"

No ads.

Doesn't fix the PBB forcing mobile devices to mobile site but I rarely use mobile anymore.
I view mostly on my phone. I request desktop site once every few weeks and rarely have to deal with the mobile version.

Yup. It asks if you want the "mobile" version. Just say no.

Evidently your memory is faulty. The "star" system was implemented when Lance owned this place.

Did I say it wasn't?

I was merely pointing out that it's now expected you can upload relevant content to a service for free, and that to do so isn't a 5 step process where you can only select one file at a time. This is on the basis that an ad based service, such as this forum, requires a steady inflow of fresh content in order to sell more ads and keep the lights on.

When this forum was started that wasn't exactly the norm. Times have changed. Pirate hasn't changed, other than to become more bloated, ad infested, and unreliable.

That's not how you stated it in your post that I quoted. Maybe you should be clearer when whining about something.

Actually if you follow the conversation, via who quoted who, and the language of those comments, it's pretty clear. :gary: is let off on that because he's senile. You, well, you're borderline retarded, so I guess you get a pass too.


Sorry you're dumb and it makes things hard.
