...Is there a 'not' missing above?


Yes, there is, Mel.  Thanks for catching that.  It should read:

"The new (2.0) version of SMF is NOT quite the same as the older 1.1 version but it is close."

Is that the first Randall-ism of the year? (I could have missed a few, having been *gasp* staying off the computer the last few weeks.....)

I so wish Facebook would go away. I seldom go on anymore, and I know a few friends who've just up and quit it. (I really only check it to see my sister's pictures of my nephews, anyway.)

If it is, it's only because I've been busy with a kitchen remodel. ;)

I don't mind FB. It has its uses (although I don't use it much), but it isn't a good model for forum software.

A definite kudos for taking the time to fight with this problem. I know that we all appreciate it. :)

As for Facebook, it has it's uses, but it definitely shouldn't be the end all be all and it definitely can not replace a decent forum.

It's coming along too. The revived/new SMF will have 90% of the features this board does and some new features as well. Some even "from Facebook" like the ability to mention a member in a post like "@RandallS" and the person will be notified of the mention (if that have such notifications active).

That's a FB thing that will actually be useful here!

That's why I spend $20 of our server fund money to get it. There was a free mentions mod, but it was a server hog.  I figured this would be something our members would actually use.

I'm guessing the notifications would be of the same type the board uses to inform one of new PM's?

I could see how this could be useful if only so that I would know why my ears keep burning.

Useful, yes.

Actually I like it, even if it gives Mel a head's up when we're throwing mischief his way.

It only will warn him if you use the @-sign version of his username (or his Display name as this will be on an SMF board).

I believe the notifications can be sent by PM or email (or not at all) at each member's choice.

So THAT'S why I have been sweating heavily even though it's been below freezing.

Think of it as being easier than going to that mirror every time someone wishes to summon me.  I might even not bring those scissors:whis:
