- Hi Greg,
I don't know what message boards you've frequented in the past, but
they must have been poorly run. The worries you share (bloated
graphics, ads, etc.) are easily surmountable.
As it stands, there is no efficient way to see what different topics
have been posted, or to follow a thread, or to send private messages,
or to cooperatively build FAQs, or do see if other questions have been
asked and answered. A respectable discussion board would do all of
this and more. Indeed, if you don't like ads and bloat, you should
FAVOR such a change, since currently, we have to put up with whatever
overhead and bloat that yahoo wants to send our way.
(Alas, none of the replies on this subject have been transferred to
OT...in any case, it doesn't seem OT to me?)
Any other updates on development timetables? I love this product, and
would gladly spread the word and push for its adoption by others if
it was clear it was still actively pursued by its able authors...

- Hi David, Greg, John, and anybody else reading...
The forum vs yahoogroups topic needs to go to the off topic list
after this which I copied this reply. (Oh, I see you did bring it
over there after all. I'm still cleaning out many hundreds of
messages in my inbox (private, not support) from my 3 week

below. I can assure you that someday we will indeed upgrade
NoteTab. It was still voted People's Choice again at the SIC
awards convention for shareware for some 7-8 years now only
missing one year in a row. Fookes Software is Eric Fookes and
myself. Eric does what he needs to do for the company, his
livelihood, family time, etc. Unfortunately, only so much can be
done, but we will eventually get to NoteTab.

point/stance on the issue perfectly clear! :-)
Sorry, but that is out of the question - it will not happen.
Yahoogroups has served us well, has enough features, etc. Sure,
it could be better, more sophisticated and so on, but the way it
is has served us well for many years. Most forums do not have
eMail delivery either, are much slower to use for me anyway, and
until discussion mailing list are phased out (if ever), a forum
would be the very last thing I would resort to. I would probably
spend a few thousand $$$ on my own mail server and account, etc.
before using a forum for the lists.
