Yes, exactly. On September 9, 2017 I wished him good luck and he replied to me. I don't know where he fled to after that. So it must have been Irma. This was my last contact.

Edited:
I will also try to reach JoB. If he doesn't feel like it anymore, I'll take over the Yabbforum on my server and free of charge. I have enough space.

Not that I really meant for this to be so drawn out, but it seems the last we heard from Jon was around 5 years ago. And as he was preparing to evacuate from the hurricane, I will guess that it is possible he lives in Florida, but not necessarily Miami. Hurricane Irma made two landfalls in Florida on September 10, one in the Keys and another one on the west coast of Florida near Marco Island. Irma then ran up the west coast of Florida and into Georgia where it weakened into a tropical storm.



Pieszyce, I'm assuming that you have already attempted to contact Jon via email, No response?

Quick Edit: Jon lives in Sarasota, Florida. The last entry in his FaceBook page was in 2018.

Correct

September 2017 Was the Most Active Month on Record for Atlantic Hurricanes

JonB's last post was on Mar 5th, 2015 at 10:06am. I can not see his last login date. In 2022, I do not believe the USA has had a hurricane yet. There was Hurricane Agatha, Agatha made landfall near Puerto Angel, Mexico this past May. So if JonB was evacuating for a hurricane this year, he is in Mexico.

Unfortunately I don't have any more data. All I know is how a hurricane hit Florida a few years ago and someone had to get to safety. I think it was JohnB but I'm not 100% sure.

Edited:
I found

JonB has actually checked in - he's doing backups of YaBB and BoardMod for safekeeping before evacuating his office due to the hurricane. (He also sends his thanks for all your hardwork with YaBB. He's had some issues the past year or so that has kept him from being active with YaBB.)

Send good thoughts his way for getting through this storm.

Yesterday I completed the installation of YaBB 2.7 and last night uploaded all the data from my forum (almost 500,000 posts and almost 50,000 topics) to the conversion. Everything went smoothly, no errors. I noticed that there is still a lot to be done with the translation, apparently something was added. No problem.
However, what does not work is sending mails with the YaBB engine and Perl modules. Otherwise I can't find any errors at the moment.

@ Dandello

if you need access to test mail delivery, I will give you the data for the mailbox.

You know your access data for the forum.


In my opinion, YaBB 2.7 turned out very well.

As always, the test forum is located below

https://yabbtest.de/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl



Now I will slowly incorporate the mods, but this should be done before the conversion. Other languages should be incorporated before the setup. Otherwise you have to incorporate them manually.

@ Red Barchetta

I know all this, it's nothing new to me. I also put a lot of time into YaBB. I also understand that Dandello doesn't have the time or inclination anymore. Only when I start something do I finish it. Dandelo writes she will finish YaBB 2.7, okay. Then I will also finish the translations. No problem. Of course, the mods must then also be adjusted. I sat there for weeks doing the translation for YaBB 2.7 and in Germany they have two translations, formal and informal. Both are important. I also offered to host the YaBB sites on my server and that was free of charge. No answer is also an answer. I look after a few YaBB forums here in Germany and I do it for free because I just enjoy it. I don't care about the money.

But I'll start with an example of how not to do it. XTC develops the mod "Who is where" After YaBB has been further developed, this mod also has to be adapted. This was also done by JetLi and what did he do, he sold the mod to anyone who wanted it for 20 euros. I called XTC and told him about it. The end of the story: XTC rewrote the mod and JetLi was at a loss. At the same time, completely different machinations came to light. But that is not important now. Maybe XTC will write something about it at some point.

The fact is, Dandello announced here in this post that she will finish 2.7, I hope the mods too. For me, that's reason enough to keep going. I have now set up YaBB 2.7 on my test domain and will now try to transfer my large forum. I will write about mistakes.

PS: Doesn't JohnB also live in Miami? Or am I wrong there?

You want 2.7 to be ready soon, but other than Dandello, who is working on it to make this happen? Dandello has even told us that she has a full time job, and its not YaBB. As for Bug Free, YaBB has never been bug free. Expensive mission critical programs are not bug free. But those people have paid programmers who's job it is to program, or they do not get paid. YaBB does not have that, it has all been donated time, donated skill. And those donations have ended. Someone has to pay for the Yabb hosting, the domain names, etc. Yet we are not charged to cover the cost. Even if it is self hosted, there is still cost to keep the equipment going, the added resources, and yes, the time that has to be given.

YaBB was a free community supported project. But that community has all but gone. If I had 10-20 volunteer workers to build free homes for the homeless, and all but 2 quit and never show up again, yet the homeless insisted that I continue to keep building them perfect free homes, how do I do it? That is YaBB right now.

Maybe I am missing something, but I do not know what "truth" you are looking for. Dandello has said she has tried to contact Jon about yabbforum.com, but there has been no response. I am guessing she did not set up the domain, the host for yabbforum.com, and does not have the passwords to give it support. Or maybe the bill has come due for the hosting?

I am sure I could be wrong with any of this, but without the support like we used to have, it is going to be extremely hard for YaBB to develop beyond where it is now.

If YaBB 2.7 is the last version, so be it. But what do you mean by PERL update? Doing this on a dedicated server is no problem for me. With virtual servers, however, there will be difficulties from the providers. You know I'd love to help you code, but I can't and I don't know anyone who can. Okay, promise me that 2.7 will be ready soon and bug free and I'll keep going. I have no other choice, switching to SMF is out of the question for me. If you need help with sending email, you can always use my server. I've just installed the latest build on yabbtest.de and am currently transferring my big forum. I'll probably know by tonight German time. Later more.

I feel like they want YaBB to die. Why else are the YaBB pages no longer working?
Why doesn't anyone tell us the truth.

This is exactly what JetLi wanted. Now he did it.

Hi Dandello,

When someone installs 2.7, is there any help when bugs appear or does support stop as well?

Now my forum is still fairly stable, but how long will that take and if there is no help how can we proceed? Stop everything?

Sorry if I'm a nuisance, but 18 years of work is in danger of breaking.  Cry

I know the breed, in the Netherlands they call them Sheltie's and a friend of ours had two, with which he trained for show's. I myself had two swiss white shepherds.

I’m sorry. But cannot understand JonB  that, when you start something, then that creates obligations, but JonB has also let me down in the past.

And the repair of Bugs in 2.6?

I wish I were able to help you, but I don't know anything about Perl or how to code.... I unfortunately never learned that, something I regret.  Cry

Puppy is doing fine but is a handful (Shetland Sheepdogs are NOT low energy dogs and Georgette has discovered that the yard includes the neighbors cats who don't really want to play dog games with her.)

Jon B has not gotten back.

2.7 will be the last unless someone steps up to help with coding and updating to new Perl versions.
