Okay guys, I am going to get a community poll up to see what we can do about getting a software upgrade.

We have several choice, vBulletin, XenForo, and Invision PowerBoard

Here are the pro and cons on some of them

1. vBulletin 5 Connect Community Support Forums - vBulletin Community Forum
PRO : Familiar layout to all users on 360tuna
Cons : Pretty much Trader Feedback and Gallery will not be supported (Taken out by vBulletin)

2. XenForo XenForo Community
Pro : Faster Forum
Cons : Layout takes time to get used too, trader feedback is gone, and gallery is gone

3. IPB (my personal choice) - Invision Power Services
Pro : Faster Forum, Easy to learn layout, Gallery can be imported
Cons : Trader feedback is gone but can be rewrite eventually as the plugins system is easier to understood (might take time)

Not upgrading isn't an option as security issues will arise overtime.

Let me know what you guys think, I won't proceed until we conclude this.

do we need upgrade...??? :confused:
my only problem was got redirected if i browse from google.... just re-click once more and problem solved.....

Yeah, i am not sure why it keep happening with vbulletin, of course i would prefer not to change that means less work, but it is riskier for our community in term of data security.

Trader feedback is deleteable in current forum, It is no great loss.
The gallery is important history of this forum.

I vote IPB. imported gallery, faster. Hopefully trader feedback could be written in a non delete format.

madday,
I thought I had that same problem licked 2 or 3 times......NOT.
I did find two solutions though.
On my tablet I go to "bookmarks" click on 360Tuna and have zero problems.
On my laptop I go to "history" click on 360Tuna, click on the banner, then click on a page. This will take you direct to that specific date and page. Then click on Forum and I/you are in the here and now. Couple extra steps but no interference. Time travel!

As far as Trader Feedback goes I believe it to be very important for those that sell and buy often. I disco'd PayPal when EBay bought it about 6(?) years ago so I don't buy a lot or sell (that time will come). I don't know if we can do it but maybe a sub-forum in Classified to note how the transaction went. Without reinventing the wheel you can use the search feature and call up a member in that specific forum and see what the past history is.

Thanks EWDI, I agree with the previous posters and like where this is going.

I think thats a good idea about creating a new section for feedback and show it on users profile as a replacement of trader feedback, that way it can also be a reference in communication of a deal
