    Default Alpha Forum

    May be a silly question - is this new style Forum written in Alpha 5 v6 Web Application?

    No, it is not an Alpha product. It is a commercial product called vBulletin, available at www.vbulletin.com and is written in php. It would take thousands of hours to create a product of this caliber and our development time is better spent creating tools for our customers rather than re-inventing the messageboard wheel.

    Thanks for the reply although a simple NO would have been enough instead of the sarcastic spanked bottom you added towards the end of your post!

    Andy, I really don't think Aaron meant to spank anyone's bottom. We have been criticized in the past for not using the Web Application Server and I think Aaron suspected this may be where this thread may go without an explanation.

    Hi Lenny,

    As it was my first visit to the new board and it has to be said that the layout and colour of the new forum looks very 'Alpha', I thought I’d ask a question to satisfy my curiosity, I thought the first part of the initial reply was good one but the plot was lost towards the end of Aarons posting, and unecessary.


    Regards

    Sorry, Andy. I was just trying to explain why we didn't write the board ourselves. No sarcasm was intended.

    Threads like this one (http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...ad.php?t=18536) lead me to be pre-emptive with the explaination.
