We needed something that was stable and didn't leave open security holes or something that a script kiddie wrote in his basement.
We wanted something with support. Most of the VBulletin hacks out there don't have it. Not to mention, security is an issue with those as mentioned before.
We wanted something that had more features. Just like you can view people's other posts and threads, now you can view their videos that they posted.

Dandy for those using Chrome but not everyone does. This works with all browsers (any bug reports if not already reported would be appreciated).
Simply enabling the [embed] tag on the message board itself would have been sufficient.
You may not know that we tried that before and at first, it worked fine...until some jackasses though it would be funny to add a dozen videos in a row to their sig. Haha...that sure was cute. Then we were alerted to the ability of the site being hacked because it allowed a breach of the site for a script injection. Nope....not going there again.
Folks, this is what we are going with. There really isn't anything like this out there. We are the first to use it. You might not know it, but this is the result of several months behind the scenes. I am sorry if some don't like it, but it seems that whenever we make any changes...we get the same complaints with no assistance of what we can do to improve. We also get some suggestions that we can work with, but some we end up just ignoring them since we cannot do anything based on them. It is even worse when the complaint is laced with an insult or just as bad, exaggerations that make it look bad when it really isn't.
No need for that when we are just doing our best to do something that is cool and useful for the majority.
There are tons of cool features in this system that no one has right now...and if you just use it, you will see how this ties everyone's videos together. I am sure everyone here has killed a lot of time just checking out YouTube videos. I know a have found myself watching for hours almost by accident.
That is why they are all linked together, it provides greater enjoyment. Now the same type of connectivity is here.
The people behind this are the same as who started Streetfire. We have known them since before this site existed and we will all continue to work toward making the system better. With everyone's useful suggestions and assistance, we will make it as good as we can!
So please, if you like it, use it and enjoy it. If you don't like it, still use it but let us know how we can improve upon it. All useful help is appreciated. All insults or useless griping will be ignored/deleted.
