One, I wonder how things would be different if Corey Tate stayed at Mizzou.
Second, I always grin a bit when people praise this forum's layout versus Tigerboard's. I am also happier with this layout, but to get into the weeds, what we use is a "flat" layout. Tigerboard uses "threaded." We used threaded for a VERY long time - but no forum software really makes threaded anymore. But Billikens.com users at the time expressed strong resistance to moving from threaded moving to flat. So much so, that I actually contacted Nick to see if I could buy a copy of Tigerboard's software.
That said, I am supremely happy with Invision Services and Invision Power Board (the software we use). I don't have the skills to make every little feature people want - but I got lucky in picking the right horse when we switched god knows how many years ago now.
