Hp.com is not good for people answering your questions for sure. I joined hp.com before h-a.net and quickly switched over to HA. HP.com is mostly 3rd and 4th Gen, not very benifical for us 5G guys. Oh well, the only thing good about hp is the gallery and the setup accounts.

the thing that sways me away the most though, it the forum implementation. kinda out-dated, slow and inconvenient. UBB is the best.

That's because the webmaster himself owns 2 3rd gen.

Damn, you guys shouldn't be so harsh. The reason it is different is because it's not a UBB site. He actually designed that board himself with money out of his own pocket, unlike the UBB boards that are free. And I don't know what you guys are talking about it being slow. I never have a problem, plus it is a complete Prelude only site, unlike this one which is everything. There is some pretty smart guys on there. So, don't knock another Prelude enthusiasts work. That just sucks.

That kind of "rolling" forum just isn't condusive to real conversation. It's great for the people that are on it right when the message is posted but that's it. The site as a whole is a great contribution to the "community" though.

As for the forum... it would be possible for him to switch to a more friendly interface without spending money... I've setup several free boards. One such example is the Snitz board...
http://forum.snitz.com/

I think it serves its purpose as it is though... it's not like there aren't other places to go to post.

Sorry guys, but once you get used to an hp.com style forum, you'll realize UBB sucks arse. Donkey arse. With a straw.

Why do you think Dell, Sony and others have licensed forums like the ones on gamers.com? Besides, the rolling forum is FAR easier to moderate. Trust me.

I joined hp.com way before I came here. If you guys haven't checked it out recently, the webmaster added some new cool options ("my thread", chose threaded or flat, ability to edit now, how many threads on a page, list by latest reply or newest thread.) I DO however like the design of that site better. And there's a few people on there who's very knowledgable.

The reason why hp.com may suck is because there's too many newbies asking the same questions on there. Like, "what intake should I get", "I'm new at this, what should I do first". Dammit, if you don't know what to get don't get anything! Do some research first.

IMO, I see that ha.net is more about parts, what's best/new etc. and hp.com is more for maintenance and troubleshooting (2nd, 3rd, 4th gen). Because I own a 4g, I check both sites everyday.

u know what? youre 100% right. i guess i was getting a lil disappointed with the lack of activity there... and i kinda dislike the forum format. (btw, there is a free UBB and a commercial one which has more features.)

I can't believe you guys are dogging the site when there's been so many hours of hard work put into the site. The webmaster knows most of you here are just using the site to show off your setups, yet he still doesn't mind. You have to remember they put in a lot of hard work for that new board just for *YOU*. But to sit here and trash the site is just wrong. He, along with the help of a few people is trying to create the perfect honda prelude site where owners can interact, yet you don't appreciate it. He has reformatted the whole board to make it better for everyone. Yet some are still unhappy. Just goes to show you can't satisfy everyone

I admit the site has gone down because the newbies keep asking the same damn question over and over like "which intake is the best." But all of you should remember at one time you were newbies yourself. Also there's been so many off-topic post (which I will admit I am at fault for participating in) lately that it pushes the real technical threads down.

I still like that site and the way they have split up the boards though. It's just there are some idiots that still aren't smart enough to post certain topics in the appropriate board. Also too many damn for sale ads and multiple post in all the boards. And I dont know what you are talking about saying the board is slow because I'm running on a 56k modem (ancient these days) and the board loads pretty damn fast to me. This is compared to the UBB board, where I would have to load the whole thread each time (which is pretty slow) just to see the reply (IF there was one).

But like some of you said, there isn't a lot of 5th gen owners as compared to here. This site has tons of tech info that is passed around for 5g owners so I'm just here to learn as much as the next guy.

My point is don't knock hp.com just because you find the site lacking nowadays. Someone put a lot of work, money, and stress into that site just for you guys. If you don't like it, don't use it. But there's no need to trash it. It's just some people prefer that style, and some don't.

Well I'm probably gonna get flamed for this but oh well, I don't care. I'm up for constructive criticism at least.

yeah my main point was that all the interesting posts are on ha.net nowadays, as opposed to hp.com (like it used to...)

as for the forum layout -- i did mention "imho"...

also, i KNOW that hp.com is probably the best prelude-dedicated site that exists today. i just think it's better off using a UBB forum heh. i dont think i'm trash talking either....

i do realise that web page is ran independently with one guy's budget. thats AWESOME. i do realise the forum is built from scratch.... but at the end of the day, whats more convenient to use? for me, its UBB.

anyway. cheers.

Just a note, but there is a lot of work and effort that goes into H-A as well. I doubt Chris at HP.com has nearly the same security issues. And while you may think UBB is free, it is, by far, not a free software. It must be purchases for $299 then the license renewed every year. I would also like to point out that our version of UBB just 'looks' like UBB, while it is actually completely redesigned and recoded by myself and Fazle for increased security and performance.

I would like to say though, that alot of time, and hard work have been put into both sites, and both are enjoyed by a large crowd. In my opinion, instead of saying one or the other is bad, I would prefer that people visit both, and get the best possible answer/knowledge that they can get to their questions.
