Breaking news! Chris Ray made an announcement at the chat meeting this Sunday night. He has installed an ultimate bulletin board at neogeofreak.com! He also mentioned that there are a TON of hacks he installed that are equivalent to this board. I was quite interested to see the new message board at NGF so I asked Chris to provide me with the URL. Unfortunately, he was unable to locate the link to NGF’s forum which he had just recently created.

I have a question for Dion. We had a long discussion through ICQ about how you believed true professional sites don’t have forums. I defended the forums at neo-geo.com by declaring this site to be a fan site. However, Oracle, MP3.com, and Warner Brothers have ubb’s installed at their sites. Do you consider the addition of a message board to be a flaw? And if so, wouldn’t you be contradicting yourself if NGF was to install a board?

Many professional sites are now using UBB, thats why the licensing fee is so high, because it is a program mainly designed for the advanced user, and a production website.

Many sites for TV shows, and some coporate support sites use UBB.

The addition of a message board is a good means for question and answer and also a good way to create a community of people helping each other!
