looks good man, is there better bot/spam filters with the new setup?

might as well update sooner rather than later, do you know if many other forums changed to the new one yet?

the new software has been out for 6-8 months i beleive, alot of people have upgraded, as for bots, its just a matter of time until they flood the phpBB3 installs, there will always be a fight against the bots. we'll just have to deal with them when they come.

the only problem i have rigth now is we have all spam postings in visable to general members so i wan to re-create that type of system before we move over fully, i don want to upgrade then go backwards with the spam situation.

No one wants to voice their opinions on what the new site will look like?

Don't really like it but agree that the site here could use a revamp.

honestly, likes are not part of the equation, its the fact that phpBB2 doesnt get the support and upgrades it needs now that phpbb3 is out.

think of it this way

Windows XP now only gets Bug Fixxes (phpBB2) while Vista gets all the features (phpBB3)

so if we want the new features and future support for the board its a phpBB3 upgrade.

Now there are 2 types of themes available, theres a 3 style and a 2 style, that will make the board look like this old style that everyone is used to
i'll put up a theme that matches this right now just let me know what you think.
