We don't. You'd better hole up ......

which means the archives will become unreadable crap with no pictures displayed?


After my comments above, are you seriously asking me that?

Actually, I'm curious how frequently the "archives" (not really archives - just older posts) are accessed and how many by unique visitors.

Extraneous code in Reports, New Version of Forum Software

Yes, after 3 different answers:
1) No problem, which by the way I was assured when I asked this question the first time a few years ago.
2) You have no idea so it might happen again
3) This conversion is different from the last one so it might not be as bad

Almost never.

Which perhaps explains the lack of interest in resolving this issue.

And no answer to my inquiry about hiring a programmer. As the most aggrieved party here, I'm willing to consider chipping in on that if the price is reasonable.

And while we're at it, I initiated this thread and as it progressed the Forum software update emerged as clearly more important than the extraneous code that can be easily deleted. The thread title should reflect that.

So, understanding scarcasm is not your strong suit?

I delicately sidestepped providing you a direct answer to save you from what I was thinking, but as understanding "delicate" apparently isn't your strong suit either, I'll be unequivocal:
No, I'm not hiring a programmer just to make Tony Crocker happy.

Nor do you seem to understand who the big cheese is around here, for after I've changed it you've changed it back no fewer than six times. What we have here is a failure to communicate: I'm communicatin', and you're not listenin'.

Finally, as you've been told countless times before, this sort of conversation should be taken backchannel.

As an admin myself, about to do the same thing, I feel your pain.

I must say I thought it was super cool of Tony to volunteer to pay your development costs. =D>

This is very true, Harv, and I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have been testy about it had we not had umpteen conversations along these lines in the past, including about not discussing internal issues on a public forum (it's only been 19 days since I last brought that issue up). However, "chip in" means I'm still paying someone the majority of his or her bill to do something that I can figure out myself.

Maybe I'm confused but I was kidding or didn't realize Tony volunteered to contribute. I was referring to the fact that in our forum there's lots of free advice but little understanding of time, money or the fact that you actually have a job and of course you want to ski as much as possible.

BTW I'm thinking of taking the forum down. Fourth of July is the low point for traffic and I'll just kill it for a week or whatever it takes.

Admin has sent me zero back channel emails since this thread began. Since he is now requesting that I'll give it a try.

Yes I'm aware of the work involved maintaining a website as I have one myself.

And when it became evident that I'm the primary person impacted by the upcoming change I thought I should perhaps make a contribution to fixing the potential problems.

Yes it's admin's forum to run as he sees fit. It's also my decision where to make the effort to post reports. Patrick chose several years ago to post to his own blog to ensure control and preservation. I disagreed with that decision at the time as I believed the wider audience on FTO was important and also appreciate feedback from readers.
