Fullsize bronco .com has been on Xenforo for about 6 months now. It's a disaster. Not because of xenforo, but because of the company that owns FSB doesnt care about us because they have 1000s of auto forums. Our participation is down at least 50%. Many site functions are gone. It's a cluster fkkk. Many people havent been seen since the change.

I am glad to see that this site is more set on properly moving, and not rushing things.

They recently implemented the option for two factor ID but idk if many are using it.
1985 Bronco. 309ci I6, NP435, 4.56 gears, Detroit locker and tru-trac, 4" lift, and 37" swamper tires. The 309 is 9.75:1 CR with a Schneider 140H cam, 4bbl, roller rockers, larger valves, and headers.

Thnx,

I hate 2 factor. It has is places of use I guess in high risk online accounts such as anything financial, but this is just a forum. I think it is overkill on a simple car forum.

A good balance on the use of 2-factor auth might be to ensure that anyone with admin privileges on the site uses it, regular users not as critical. If a regular user account gets hacked it's not the end of the world, if an admin gets hacked it can hurt the whole site.

2Xauthentication

Post #56 by chad » Mon Feb 03, 2020 9:37 am

aahhh, more interesting details (new 2 me, thnx!)
:thumbup:
Some of the bds R money makin for 1 guy (or more), the admin. Not so here.
We got reg workin stiffs volunteering their (free) time. Being volunteer run I'd like to have the balance toward
a reduced wrk load 4 them. We fail when they become over wrked.

Once a mo (or so, is that right?) we get some kinda glitch so I think another update is needed (this 'upgrade').
We need to keep adding fresh blood (new guys). Finding one's way, getting on the forums, can't B an onerous
odiferous (pew) :roll: :lol:
process. 2xauto duz not concern me there...
(I may B ignorant)

Three things:

1)

It's 2020. There's no excuse for not having 2fa on the admin accounts. Even SMS 2fa would be a huge improvement. Please implement 2fa. This forum gets "hacked" way too often (seems like annually) to not at least make a decent effort about security.


2)

Can we please, please up the image quota. Storage is cheap and this forum has much more permanence than any of the image hosting sites we use.

3)

Related to #2, can we have some transparency with regard to upkeep costs for the forum. In order to have productive group discussion about things like backups, image hosting, security, etc (all of which cost money on some level) we need to have access to the numbers.
