Hi Jim, I didn't know how to email you privately so I'll use one of the more casual forums. This is not a new topic, I'm sure, but let me add my voice to whatever clamor there is to migrate Free Republic to a more modern forum software package, one that
1. Has functions which are easy to see/find and invoke
2. Allows easier upload of pictures
3. That allows email notification of replies to comments
4. That allows editing after a comment is posted
5. That has text editing features so one doesn't need to know HTML code in order to add emphasis.
6. That has a Search function for previous posts
7. That is easier to navigate to the specialty forums such as "Gods, Graves, Glyphs", which, had it not been mentioned in a random post, I never would have found here on FR.
This is the modern era, there are far, far better forum software packages out there. Free Republic may well experience a rapid growth in users post Trump victory. We'll want to make joining and participating fully in FR as easy as possible.
I actually like this format. Oh well.
I’d like to see an app added so it would easier to access it my by iphone.
And where’s my “Like” button?!?!
Free Republic is in need of some new functionality.
I ALSO think it would not be objectionalble to accept advertizing - we love capitalism here.
Free Republic does what Facebook does and did it earier. Facebook is worth billons and FR has to go begging each quarter.
This is too important of a site to have these kinds of problems 20 years into its existance.
How about moving to Arizona? Or Texas?
Just go to mail and post to Jim Robinson
A few thousand dollars donated today will do your request a lot of good. (That’s WHY today’s political elites going back to the Roman era had rich allies and billionaire-party fund raisers.)

The FR forum is the very best.
The crap you call ‘modern’ sucks to the max, and is all an attempt to plagiarize what we have here without violating the copyright.
I disagree. Especially the advertising suggestion. Probably one of the worst ideas ever
But, in using other websites for discussion, I have changed my mind and think it is better to learn to proof read what we are posting and make sure we are happy with content as well as spelling and grammar.
I've witnessed other discussions where people have gone back and edited their comments to give a different impression of what they said.
Also; being able to only upload photos from an open source has a security measure that helps keep things a little cleaner most of the time.
Reader View would be helpful on the iPhone.
On yer bike...
Facebook is nothing but an identity thief’s tool kit.
If you like it, go there.
simplicity and continuity...like the old pre-radio crystal set; the comuter has never achied that, and likely will not...
Just plain Dick @ Planet WTF!

Make Free Republic Usenet again!
(Yeah, I’ve been here a while.)
BBCode is feces!
