    Sorry, but I think this thread's time has come.

    Sounds like the same old Charles Capps. Nothing has changed a bit. Instead of telling others to send in their computers so they can have a look, he now tells you to find a good host.


    " What to do?
    Find a host that knows how to manage load on their servers, and stay tuned for future UBB releases.

    We are aware of the UBB I/O issues, which are at the heart of the load issue, and are taking measures to reduce I/O in future releases. "

    " Thank you for your paitence and understanding."

    UBB,

    Learn how to program. You didn't even fix the template problems before releasing 6.0 Gold.
    Quit blaming others for your crap software.
    Quit changing policies to suit your lack of programming skills.
    Quit banning people out of the forums.
    Quit locking troubleshooting posts before the problems are solved.

    BTW,
    Ventures Online is one of the best hosts out there. They are highly competant and deliver the most hardware, support, etc... for the money. So dogging them just shows me how much the nose of CC is up Ted's ass. Patience and understanding???? WTF, I waited 2 weeks for templates to be fixed after downloading the Gold Version when it came out. How long would I have to wait for good software? It has been 6 months already. 6 months I and I would have still been waiting for software that was worth less than a quarter of what they are charging. And then more problems.

    I just couldn't help but reply to this. The idiocies of UBB still lives on and I had nothing but a nightmare with them. All problems solved when I purchased vBulletin. Even the beta 5 version of vBulltetin 2.0 was far superior to what I had with UBB6.0Gold.

    I seldom say anything in any of these threads that relate to IP. But seeing CC's attitude displayed in the above links makes me angry.

    "This is a designed behavior" my ass.

    It looks like Charles got them to close the thread at UBBDev too:

    http://www.ubbdev.com/ubbcgi/ultimat...&f=11&t=000202

    At least he didn't slam VO in that thread. He left the dirty work to DonV this time.

    Ah, the joys of hosts who can't administrate their own servers. *sigh*
    Strange that this is the only post this 'DonV' ever made at UBBDev!

    How convenient to slap VO like that and then close the thread. What a wooosie.

    Remids me of doorbell ditching as a kid.

    They didn't delete this one (yet) but they sure closed it in a hurry. I was particularly amused to see this comment from Charles Capps:

    What to do?

    This sure is a slap in the face of the folks at Venturesonline. Obviously the problem must be clueless web hosts!

    Here's the thread. Catch it before it's gone for good!

    P.S. I kept screen shots this time!

    qasic,
    That may speed it up, I'll have them call, he's so pissed he may just use the damn thing as a coaster....

    6.1 may improve I/O, but its just to little to late, I/O problems should have been fixed in the gold release. Thats why hosts are banning the use of UBB and YaBB, because the programmers don't take the care to do a good job....

    I just find it surprsing that Ventures Online won't just

    1) have all UBBs disable their search features
    2) see what 6.1 doees in terms of speed and modules [and yes, 6.1 is quite a fair bit more efficient in terms of I/O than 6.0x

    Prohacker: For the company trying to sell their license, have you gotten them to phone Infopop directly instead? Sometimes phone calls speed things up drastically.

    [edit]smachol: I found this thread discussing UBB @ VenturesOnline http://ubbforums.infopop.com/cgi-bin...c&f=5&t=001579 which still exists. Doesn't looks as if it has been deleted to me [/edit]

    I was going to purchase that forum for a heavy use website but chose VB on the bases of positive feedback here. As for negative feedback, I know of many companies that welcome both opinions to help to improve the product/service. But to that extent?

    But there you are. I suspect any commercial company would want such a horrifying negative fact about their product to be kept "hidden" until a fix is brought forth for its user base.

    No they don't.

    It's still only $199? That's what I paid last Sept. Maybe their price increase didn't affect all of the licenses.

    I agree ... it's not often that you see a company that is so close-minded as to try and disavow any negative feedback...

    It must be for significant commercial reasons for not showing the post which has them worried else they could just dismiss the ban as an overreaction.

    This does has serious implication for those paying their $199 then not finding the host(s) not allowing the use of the board. I wonder if they have a refund policy?

    Actually I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did - 1 or 2 hours.

    I honestly don't understand how they can justify removing this message. It was an innocous request for a response to the growing number of web hosts that are banning UBB from their servers. What possible justification could they have for censoring this?
