RPGBoard is a WWWBoard-style message board script. It includes multiple forum support, thread modes, a message previewer/editor, message tags, selectable backgrounds, default options for the regulars, name detection via cookies, recent message date/time color coding, the ability for users/admins to (un)delete messages, top poster statistics, a hidden spoiler message box, the ability to ban IP addresses, a word filter to block cuss words, and much more.
Employee Scheduler is designed to pick the most efficient schedule, given a matrix of the number of employees per hour per weekday. It has a number of variables to work with in order to tweak the output, such as the number of full-time/part-time employees, at which hours they can start working, what kinds of shifts the program picks, etc.
Re: Crappy, really crappy...
There's been an interesting "faction" of groups between the UBB (and clones) junkies and the RPGBoard users, thus people's opinions of the two script formats vary greatly on both ends of the scale. It is true that RPGBoard was (at the very beginning stages, about five years ago) modelled after WWWBoard, and the UBB clones (such as Ikonboard, WWWThreads, etc.) modelled after (of course) UBB. So, there are two different formats which people are used to. I dare say that RPGBoard is the best message board script for the WWWBoard-style of MBs.
Also, RPGBoard takes functionality and configurability over style and looks. Because of this, you'll wind up with a less Microsoft approach to RPGBoard (cover up the bugs and lack of functionality with fading menus and more screensavers), and more of a GNU-programmers' approach (get the thing to work and work well, then worry about making it look good). Unlike some of these people, I actually run a popular MB (http://www.ResonatorSoft.org/tows/) and know both the poster's and admin's POV.
I'll give props to the UBB clones for a nice & neat tabular format, but when it comes to actually posting on these boards, I really miss the features that I've come accustomed to (such as Load/Save messages, the expanded text box, No Text messages, a decent spell checker, etc.), something which the regulars of a MB really appreciate. (I have a feature comparison of various MB scripts here (http://www.ResonatorSoft.org/software/rpgboard/compare.html).)
I've been trying to merge the two worlds, but it's a long and gruelling process, especially when dealing with two vastly different MB styles.
I've had my ResonatorSoft.com domain name hi-jacked, but everything is back up on ResonatorSoft.org. Sorry about the mess, but everybody's recommended to update to the latest beta version to (at the very least) update the ResonatorSoft links. BTW, don't go to ResonatorSoft.com if you're at the office :P
