    as long as we keep some of the skin and ALL of the forum posts (there is too much value to risk losing) then I say go for it.

    If going phpBB3 means dropping the current skin, I pass.

    Wait. Before you convert it. Back up the caption contest onto 50 flash drives.

    Yeah, a couple of months. And if you do the forum conversion first, then there’s no way to access the rest of the site.

    Yeah, I like the old skin better.

    LegosJedi, if you spend a couple of months on it, you could do it.

    I like this skin. I’ve been on other forums ,and its hard to know which topics are stickies, locked etc, without looking at the thing at the bottom (as this was my first online forum).

    I really dislike that skin.

    Please move this skin over to that one. It’s not hard. You could at least retain some of the cultural heritage of brickfilms.com

    See, zane, forum conversion seems to go well, but the whole site depends on phpBB2 code. By upgrading to phpBB3, it basically means a complete re-write of the site, from the way Schlaeps describes it. That’s why he opted not to go upgrade.

    Agreed. The brick look is classic. Brickfilms just would be Brickfilms without the brick look.

    I know the skin will be improved, but please tell me that the final version won’t look as plain as the current one. It seems so boring.
