Yeah, this one is having a few problems lately. I think that is due to the upgrading process that they have been working on lately.
I might consider another board sometime but really when you think about it, this really isn't a high volume board. It's really just for us guys. And Yahoo would probably be my last choice in the world because:
A) They are big (like you said), and they have devoured so many other sites along the internet and utterly ruined then (http://www.sold.com.au
is top example). Sold is now difficult to navigate and slow and cumbersome.
B) Yahoo boards are ugly and hard to understand. I'd hate to become 'part' of Yahoo.
C) I think that's all
Actually, if I ever get proper hosting, I'll design my own board in ASP. Also, I can now get the board site sucked. But it's a HUGE archive. But if anyone is interested in getting it, I'll soon post the software to download and the settings to use.
