Hi guys, so tomorrow (12-31-18) is the day both the Xenforo support, domain and hosting expire. Now I can renew all three, but for the purposes of being cost-efficient, and so I can virtue signal about how frugal I am, I've done the following:

1. We're going to transition back to Yuku. Yes, I'm aware of the occasional performance issues, but I assure you, at least 75% of the time it functions. Also, studies have shown performance is relatively comparable to Xenforo and other top forum providers during that 75% uptime. Unfortunately, some have noted Yuku tends to go completely AWOL in October, but, thus far, it's a small sample size. We have to trust the process.

Since you can't blame someone for going with the percentages, and since this is free, this should be a sound decision you all endlessly praise me for. I'm getting value, I'm being cost-efficient, and, frankly, that's all that matters. For the times it crashes? Well, that's just technology being technology. Nothing you can do about that.

2. There are certain, shall we say, feature differences between Yuku and Xenforo. One of these being that Yuku only handles up to 5 logins at a time. Now you may initially find this problematic during this season for game threads, or even during the offseason as moves are being made. Fret not, though. This will give us an opportunity to utilize a modern way of forum posting, specifically a platoon system. For example, during game threads:

BCMaiden, Matthew, Beef, Jerry, Torgy (Innings 1-3)
David, TxDodger, Hagdag, Golfer Girl, Claude Osteen (Innings 4-7)
Shmolnick, BigBlaster, Newport Dodger, Petro, derrickm (Innings 8-9)

Some may call this a limitation... I call it depth. You're welcome.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
As I read this I thought, "Is it New Years or April Fools?"

Thanks for keeping things running, Matthew!

I am dying laughing. I just told Herself she could only do innings 4-7 and you should've seen the sad look on her face. She thought she did something wrong and she was on double secret probation. I am going with that until tomorrow morning. Stuff like this makes my day. Right now, she is in the seven stages of denial. First stage, sad. Second stage, sadder yet. Third stage, "well fuck you then" stage. She is there now. Fourth stage will be to apologize. Five is to bribe someone. Six is offer pictures of her in a bathing suit and Seven is pictures in half a bathing suit. She says she thinks she accidently posted one of those before, but she is not sure.

Oh, how this post further mirrors reality every year...

Nonetheless, another year renewed, so Merry Christmas, everyone. Also, will do some upgrades to get us on the latest version of Xenforo sometime this week. Will keep you posted with more details.

You Da Man., Matthew!

I hope you know there are plenty of us here willing to chip in to keep this site paid for.
