@DavidJ7,
Are you from the Motorola Droid forum, DavidJ7?

First off, welcome! Smile

This is a PHP-based site. I know your site was a bit more rigid in terms of forums. What we have here are tags -- so essentially the user community can make any forums they want, including somewhat silly ones. Try the forums for things like site usage or a2K or able2know -- those should prove of some help, plus you'll start to see who some of us.

Oh and I'm jespah; I'm the Project Manager of the site. {curtsies}

@msolga,
Oh yes, you are!
I just saw the tags to this thread.
Welcome! Smile
Soon someone who can explain these things far better than I can will appear. But trust me, one you get the hang of the format, it's pretty easy going.

Coffee definitely helps. Welcome to A2K!

@DavidJ7,
Welcome. Where are the other 309 Droids?

Once you get used to it, I am sure you will like it. We went through a major change in format some time back and there was a lot of hoopla but now most everybody is familiar with the new and improved format.

@DavidJ7,
Good morning David. I hope you found some strong coffee and are starting to navigate your way around.

Lots of helpful folks around - sometimes too helpful and sometimes annoying - but we mean well!

Welcome droid David. It took me a while to learn the format as well. Stick around. It gets easier.

If I can do it, ANYONE can.

You're gonna be just fine.

@DavidJ7,
Hey David. Sorry for the rushed merger, I'll be sending out an email to Droiders shortly.

But to answer your question, it's a custom format. We used to be phpBB (you came from vB) but frankly we think either forum software is a bloated mess and we made our own.

It's messy too, because it's unfinished, but once you get used to it it's a lot cleaner, faster and more usable than vB.

@Robert Gentel,
Well, almost anything is an improvement over phpBB... It seems like a combination of Twitter / Reddit (or Digg) and a forum... I definitely see the potential in it... just takes some getting used to...

@DavidJ7,
Yes, I figured that out, David. Right asking you, right after asking you, then reading your tags. Smile
