    Can we do this...?

    Hey admin team. I was on the festool owner's group forum (www.festoolownersgroup.com) a while ago, also powered by VBulletin, and a neat thing happened. As I started to reply, I got a message "While you were reading the post, another reply has been posted, you may wish to read it before replying."

    Sure wish we had that here. Can't tell you how many times I've posted some half-assed answer to a question only to find that Tod, or Vaughn, or Ian or someone like that has already answered the question elegantly.

    Jesse, I checked out that site & it looks like it's using SMF, not vBulletin. That software must have the feature. vBulletin probably does not. Maybe one of our admins can look at the settings to see.

    I haven't seen a setting like that go by, but I'll do a bit of checking and see what I can find.

    BTW, I usually resist the urge to edit other peoples' posts, but I took the liberty of fixing the link in your post, Jesse. These darned computers can tell the difference between festtoolownersgroup.com and festoolownersgroup.com.

    Hey, why drag my name into it ? My posts are as "half fast" as anyone else's. [Tod, that's the 'elegant' way to say it ]
    All the best,

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I wouldn't have known about the new approach if you hadn't posted.

    I hated the old yahoo group interface and as a result I rarely visited that forum even though I wanted to increase my Festool knowledge.

    Oh, the downside is yet another forum to read!

    Yep, Rob is correct, it is SMF, not vBulletin, still, there may be something similar.

    Cheers!
