    Default Forum Runner in 2018

    Does anyone here use Forum Runner still? I got an email from them saying that Forum Runner is going to be going away soon. See this:

    http://www.vbulletinemail.com/switch...&utm_campaign=

    Their option to remain is to upgrade to vBulletin 5, which is something I don't want to do - mostly because it's expensive - like $200.

    Was wondering if anyone still uses it. In theory if I never update the software again it should still work, but given the back end of Forum Runner relies on stuff not on my server, it's also entirely possible it will just stop working.

    Thoughts?

    How about we all send some money your way Joe, to help cover your upgrade expenses?

    For anyone using forumrunner, I use Tapatalk which works great. I still say we send Joe some money though to maintain site.

    It's an app that allows you to surf forums easier on your phone or tablet. Keeps all replies in one place and has push notifications. Real neat

    Forum Runner has been removed. Got word it's a security risk, and they're doing away with monitoring it, so I figured now was the time.
