People ask me why I'd want to move the forum from ezboard over to the BYC main site. They also ask why members should move over here. Ah... where to start? First off, many of the reasons this board / forum is better are behind the scenes. Also some of the reasons are more important to Cindi (chickchair) than the community as a whole since those features / items make her life easier and give her more control (which ends up being better for the community since if the queen is happy... the kingdom is happy . That said, here are a few items off the top of my head that make me feel this is the best forum in the world for people who want to talk chicken: This forum is: Faster (https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=598) More stable / secure (https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=4192#p4192) (see also http://www.ezboardsucks.net ) Search Friendly - Search the whole site, not just a single forum or category Feedback Friendly with features being added (https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=333) Directly attached to the main BackyardChickens.com website User Friendly - We won't ever require a forced upgrade (see Yuku) CC Friendly - She and I talk on the phone about once a week and email almost daily! I'm not saying this forum is perfect, but it is perfect for BackyardChickens! If anybody has reason for why they are here I'd love to see them.
