Dear Fellow Cubaholics:
It is not without some reservations that I have decided (with everyone's input, thanks!), to move the Farmall Cub website to this new format for the message board.
I realize that it is a somewhat radical change from what you have become accustomed.
There were multiple reasons for this format change:
1. Bandwidth: The new format is more bandwidth efficient (very important now days with expensive web hosting.)
2. Support: The old BBS format provided me with limited support options when it broke recently. (It was still broken while you were still using a crippled system. Archives where lost and the administrative scripting failed to work. I had no way to moderate the old BBS. This was a BIG problem!)
3. My time: This is important to me and only me. The old system required constant nursing. I enjoy the website and everyone on it very much, however, if I am spending an inordinate amount of time on the message board, I cannot develop other features for the site.
4. You & Cub's: Everything I do on or with this site is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and utilization of this GREAT line of tractors. I feel both deserve the best website possible. This board is feature rich and has a team of dedicated developers. It will only get better!
I realize that some of you are not happy with this change. As was pointed out in another message on this site, there is another excellent Cub forum that uses the original format. Even if you like this one, I still encourage you to visit it at: http://www.atis.net
You will not find a finer group of people (other than here
) on the Internet!
I hope those of you that do not care for this change, will give it a little while longer to grow on you. If it does not, I still thank you for the time you spent here and the wonderful people that you have helped.
