You have got to be kidding me. The groupee login on the official support boards was already highly annoying, but re-branding everything Groupee, Inc?
Glad I have a classic WWWThreads license and can remove that silliness from my boards. That is of course until they force all classic license holders to adhere to the new product license...which I would be surprised if they do not enforce. BUT the upside is that the groupee logo is better than a dimming lightbulb.
And "Development of our next generation message board product is behind schedule. We hope to have a schedule update in the near future."
No kidding. Well there is the surprise of the week!
Sorry...just completed frustrated with InfoGroupee. Here is the update in it's entirety:
Infopop is pleased to present the UBB.threads™ May 2005 Monthly Report. In this issue, you'll find some information about version 6.5.2 and our new product, as well as news about our corporate name change.
Currently in beta testing, Version 6.5.2 of UBB.threads™ is due to be released within the next couple of weeks. This version incorporates some minor bug fixes and security patches.
Development of our next generation message board product is behind schedule. We hope to have a schedule update in the near future.
Corporate Name Change
Guess what... we're changing our corporate name! Say "goodbye" to Infopop Corporation and "hello" to Groupee, Inc. Note that we are still the same company - the same people, products, services, management, and ownership. We just felt like it was time to start consolidating around one brand name. Our existing products and services are not changing, just the name.
What's a Groupee? A Groupee is quite simply a member of a group, but we also interpret Groupee to mean a web citizen. That name embodies what the company represents and the services that we offer. It quite simply has more meaning than Infopop, a name we will certainly miss, but felt was not as strong for us in terms of creating a unified vision of our present and future.
We'll have more info on this later in May, when we also debut our new website. Here's a sneak peek at our new logo, however: (logo removed)
In the meantime, you'll still see lots of references to Infopop. It will take us a couple of months to change everything over. We'll respond to either name until you get comfortable.
