I hope you all don't throw stones at me for switching Forum Software, but this software seemed to have some nive features. The old forum is still up, and will remain up, for searches and general info. Hopefully all the features will work - and I can't wait until the search function is implemented!

Let me know your thoughts!

Lookin' good Marc!

If you implement a search engine on the site itself, it will actually search through all of the messages in the UBB. As of a recent version, the messages are all stored in HTML, so they can be easily indexed...

Like I said before, we used to use the WWWBoard too, until one afternoon when we found the UBB... bought it the very same day.

Also, keep an eye on the prime-web site, as the author tends to release new versions every 2 weeks to a month on average.

Like I told you, we'll see how many people go into shock about this new board. You know how it is - lots of threads already going on, it's hard to leave your favourite pillow (or rubber ducky), and such.

As I said in my e-mail, I'm looking for a search engine cgi for the site - hopefully find one soon.

one thing I did *not* like about webbbs is how slow it was to respond. Hopefully this cgi will be faster.....

I hope that your new software will continue to give us all the best service that we could receive.
All the best

I sure hope the software switch doesn't dampen the enthusiasm we've seen as of late. I know it will be a bit confusing at first.

Great format Marc! I especially like the fact that you can see the original message and reply text on one screen.

In response to your comment about the rubber ducks, I hope that any users will repost to keep the momentum going.

I was going to close the old forum completely to new posts but decided to leave it open for a while. I know it can feel strange to be going along nicely and all of a sudden log-on and everything is gone or changed. So - I'm sure the migration will happen. We'll get some good discussions going here. I'll close the other forum to posts in a week or two.

Thanks for the good words!

Marc I did have one thought. It is harder to post because of the size of the text window. I appreciate the scroll bar, but the ability to view more of my message will help me to edit. Thanks

I agree that the window is small. I'll shoot a comment to the cgi author, but I won't expect change in a timely manner. At least text wraps! I hate those bb's where the text keeps going to the right until you hit RETURN.

Oh well... Pros and cons...

Marc, I'm not an ultra computer techie, but I'm having no trouble moving around in this new format. It's great to see it Q/A on same screen. I really like the prompts for new messages with the light bulbs. Congratulations.

P.S. It's good to see a picture of you. I'm sure I'm not the only one that wondered. Suspenders are very good. Shows maximum intelligence!!

Thanks for the good comments.

Suspenders to me means keeping my pants up!

Why two QS9000 forums (APQP, and QS9000)? I am not sure how to discriminate the two.

I wanted to see if we could discrininate between QS9000 interpretation issues and APQP related issues. It may prove to not be a good idea.

I set up this new software spur-of-the-moment. I tried to think of as few 'meaningful' distinctions as possible. I couldn't have just one 'forum' - it would have gotten unweildy. Maybe a name change will help.

Separating QS-9000 interpretations from APQP isnt such a bad idea. As far as suggestions for a new name what about "QS-9000 core tools" a name used by plexus to describe training in APQP, FMEA, SPC,MSA,& PPAP.
