I'm not up on ROM. What does the note system do that the Circle boards

The reason that I ask is that I spent a month creating a fully threaded BBS
board system. And everyone _really_ hated it.

So I'm back at the drawing board trying to design a system that is more than
just a board, but less than a BBS style threaded message system.

Thoughts? Opinions? Flames? :-)

As an aside, does anyone on the list remember the old Auntie BBS system? I
remember the days of running "Cabin Fever" -- Doors were the precursor to
in a lot of ways :-)

Don't suppose anyone would want QWK exports for mudmail *grin*


P.S. Implementing a threaded board system was a fun challenge. Too bad it
didn't fit
in with the mentality of my players/admins ;-)

Neither sweat, nor blood, nor frustration, nor lousy manuals
nor missing parts, nor wrong parts shall keep me from my task.
