    Default FChat website update

    It looks like FChat have moved from Vbulletin to a new platform.

    It also looks from reading the update thread that it doesn't currently work with Tapatalk through which I access 99% of my forums and more importantly post 100% of pictures.

    I know it's change but Tapatalk makes it so mush easier to use the forums and personally I think they've made a big mistake. It's great to have all of your forums in one place even if new software has good mobile functionality.

    One for the committee but are CS thinking of the same in the future? Rob Lay said that vbulletin hadn't been supported for years so we must be in the same position.

    We looked at it a while ago, Mike, but came to the conclusion we were better off with what we have. Vbulletin has been updated but the new software is quite different. Essentially we may eventually be forced to change but there's no immediate plans to.

    Vbulletin is now on vbulletin 5 so we are a little behind the times.

    I can see why F-chat has switched over, it has a lot more traffic to deal with than CS

    I would have thought CS would be fine with VB for the foreseeable

    I agree with using Tapatalk - I couldn't access forums without it

    The new F-Chat style is more akin to Facebook - who wants 'likes' or 'following' on a serious forum? The colour choice and typeface also grate with me and I don't rate it. As someone said, it might appeal to teenagers but not necessarily more mature enthusiasts.

    I am probably a dinosaur and I realise that there are probably technical issues that need to be tackled, buti s the motivation click-bait for kids, with the aim of generating advertising revenue?

    As they say, if it aint broke.......

    I've not been on since before my holiday but I knew they were changing. If it is anything like FB then it won't be much use. I am on groups on FB and find it almost impossible to use seriously.

    +1 Can't find a thing. FB decides what to show you rather than the other way round.

    But Pete Golf Porn is a specialist area and you may have to go onto the dark Webb
