We should demand a better run forum.

I run vbulletin forums. I frequent vbulletin forums. Never have I ever seen a site that #1 has a problem with spam and #2 goes offline for a few hours every night.

#2 is due to the backup getting moved later (http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7170" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). It looks like it got moved to around 1 am Pacific, or so.

Spam shows up on Priuschat too, which sadly no longer runs vBulletin. I think it was still a problem there when it using vBulletin, but I could be mistaken.

http://www.tivocommunity.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; uses vBulletin and spam shows up there all the time.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

That backup story makes no sense. There is no reason the site has to go offline to backup. I'm also sure there are vbulletin plugins that could handle the spam.

Re spam - I haven't seen any - probably because I'm always looking at the active topics only.

Re forum software - I'm a huge fan of XenForo which I use on one of my forums.

I'm a dick? I'm not the one charging people money to use a forum that seems to have been set up by a technologically illiterate person. There is no reason the site has to go down for hours just to back up.

These car forums would be much better if the people from myelectriccarforums didn't capture the market first whenever a new car is announced. I mean no offense to the posters here. If you look at the current version of vbulletin, which costs $209, it makes the one they have here look like a pile of shit.
