    suggestion to increase video source

    Let us post videos using more than just youtube. This limitation is ridiculous.

    I think we can also post Vimeo video's. But not positive about that.


    If the idea of an authoritarian Trump dynasty doesn’t get Democrats out to vote, nothing will.

    The "limitation" is software driven based on our outdated version of vBulletin. We are looking at several options right now, including being able to link "tweets" in posts. But this depends on several factors which are being discussed. Please be patient as we look into all of our options.

    Just to add: donating if you can is one possible way to increase the options Hugh and Vauge have in upgrades.

    I’m a “Silver” class donor, so in a way, you could say that I’m entirely responsible for this site still running.

    Why not state the upgrade cost and ask for a donation specific for an upgrade?

    As an update, we are currently testing XenForo (made by the original creators of vB). So far, I like it but it's early. I love that you can imbed Tweets into posts! It has some cool "behind the scenes" stuff but we need to perform our "due diligence" before we decide if that's a direction we want to go. Cost is going to be a factor in whatever decision we reach. Our monthly server cost is just too much for running outdated software to be perfectly honest.

    From what I've read, the transition from our current vB to XenForo is relatively easy and smooth. I'll be reaching out to some hosts to see what will best suit our needs going forward.

    FYI

    So far so good on the testing. I really like Xenforo, a lot. The ability to post videos from multiple sources and tweets as well as the look and feel is very cool. I'm going to get pricing tomorrow for hosting so I'll know more in the next few days.
