I wanted to publicly express my thanks to JonB in particular for keeping everything together during the rough patches of YaBB's most recent growth spurt. I can only imagine that it must have been a very tough job, particularly when those of us who love YaBB felt inclined to fight with criticism to keep YaBB alive, and well. You ultimately stuck it out with us, and my own faith in you has been vindicated quite wonderfully.

My hat is off to Corey as well, because like any great project leader, he made the excellent choice to delegate to others, and to step back to allow things to shake out for the better despite how painful it was at times.

Obviously there are others who deserve to be praised, particularly those of you behind the scenes who added your valuable 2 cents to support YaBB's endeavors, and by extension to some degree, its critics.

I'm very thrilled with YaBB's most recent collaboration, and I'm impressed with the way that YaBB's leadership managed to keep everything intact despite how tough the last couple of years have been.

Smiley Long live YaBB! Smiley

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

I was hoping to try my hand at designing skins for YABB but if this system is going to go with the dinosaurs I guess there's not much point in my waiting. It would be a horrible shame to see this forum system die off though, it's much more fun using this software than many others, but that's just little ol'me speaking.

I hope YABB doesn't end up dying off. Smiley

As long as there is Perl for Unix, Linux and Windows servers, there will always be YaBB.

Making skins for YaBB is not that hard. Just like any other BBS, you just need a lot of graphics and where they go. The templates can also be modded but you need to know a bit of Perl to do that. Check out the skins on the Mod Board, and see how they did it!

I've been popping in here every now and then for a few months now hoping to see signs of new life developing here. I currently design skins for vBulletin V 3 & 4, phpBB2 & phpBB3 and now XenForo. I was hoping to try my hand at designing skins for YABB but if this system is going to go with the dinosaurs I guess there's not much point in my waiting. It would be a horrible shame to see this forum system die off though, it's much more fun using this software than many others, but that's just little ol'me speaking.

Skins (templates) are plentiful and MODs to add ads and other features are available at our sister site BoardMOD.org

Well, I didn't read all the posts in this thread, but think I have the vibe. I am a newcomer to YaBB, and built an almost instantly successful site - texasflyreports.com - for people to talk about fly fishing. I expected to go back and change the skin, add some functions, etc ... What I am now finding (or missing) is some fresh new skins, fixes and people who want to implement these changes. I have found a dearth of skins, am being overrun by spam registrants, and have been spoiled rotten by the ease of using something like wordpress to run sites. Meanwhile, I am (mentally) unable to add advertiser's ads, sidebars footers or headers - letting income potential slip away. Frustrated? You bet.
