Cookie I love the message board format!

This is the format one of my favorite message boards used to use, before they moved to something I didn't like as much. I recognized the format as soon as I quoted someone in a reply.

Even the smilies bring back memories. Although I see you have personalized your collection...

Remember, you are allowed to play the word games in the Games and Miscellany section.

I prefer this format. I find the facebook format frustrating because its vertical nature means that you can't find a specific thread that you want to comment in.

The only thing missing is the ability to "like" threads. But if it meant switching formats to gain that, well just forget I even mentioned it.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

I absolutely agree...I really prefer forums like this where the interface doesn't try to be too clever.

One of the others I frequent has the most recent PhpBB software and the editor on there absolutely does my head in. If it weren't the place where my projects get by far the most interaction I'd probably have just ditched the place being honest.
