Bill Jelen's Sternly Written Policy on Posting Your Worksheet to the MrExcel Message Board
January 24, 2020 - by Bill Jelen
Effective January 9, 2020, there are two acceptable ways to post your worksheet to the MrExcel Message Board: (1) Paste a screenshot or (2) post code generated by the official XL2BB.xlam add-in developed by Suat M Ozgur (aka smozgur at the board). I will not support any other methods for posting worksheets to the board—and I'll tell you why.
As of this writing, there are 5 million posts at this board. From 2009 to 2019, we welcomed various methods of posting to the board. I loved the creativity of Colo, Richard, Excel Jeannie, HTMLMaker, and others.
However, during 2019, when we were planning on converting from vBulletin to Xenforo, converting from HTML to BBCode, we discovered around 200,000 spreadsheets posted to the board using 36 different styles. My goal is to preserve every single contribution because it enriches the community. We had to write code to convert each old style to the new style.
