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.

I say convert to phpBB3 as soon as possible, the forum could use a new look.

I say don’t fix it if it ain’t broke. I would keep the current version until it becomes obsolete and does not serve the purpose of the forum adequately. Upgrading could cause a load of problems, especially for such a large site as this. Are there really that many advantages to upgrading besides “new stuff?”

Actually I agree with those against the upgrade. Sure, phpBB2 will become unsupported on January 1st 2009 but it’s April at the moment. phpBB2 is simpler than phpBB3 and with the correct mods phpBB2 can easily compete with phpBB3. I think I rewrite (NOT A REDESIGN) of the site will be efficient and it will cause less server problems. I agree, phpBB3 will cause tons of incompatibility problems and… stuff.

Keep phpBB2, but repair the site.

Actually, the skin is just subsilver with an extra stud on it, historaudio used to have subsilver, and it looked rather repetitive. I say we get a new theme.

No it isn’t.

Yeah, that row3.gif or whatever it is has a stud on it, but there are smileys to consider, all the little images what are in posts, the forum images and all that. subSilver has different widths and proportions than this forum, it’s wider. Also this theme has some changes to the design to fit in with the mods.

when BF3.0 comes can I have some of the files from this site? Like the old film directory files that we use right now? And the old homepage files? That would just be really nice if you could do that, for I am working on a new site for me site.
