New Forums coming soon!
Hi guys, it’s ssmmdd, Meltus’ Web guy.
As you may have noticed, the current Forum Board software we use, phpBB, isn’t perfect. I myself have broken it in the past and its spam blocking systems are … well, crap. No offence to phpBB here, there’s not many people out there who can offer stuff for free and keep going this long, even during the financial problems the world is currently facing.
However, I am pleased and happy to announce that Meltus has recently purchased a lovely little Licence for vB (vbulletin) Forum Suite. The payment takes a few days to process & verify (I assume to weed out fake payments) but once done, I will get onto installing it and replacing our current install of phpBB with it.
This does mean that the current phpBB Forum, at some point not far off in the future (read: hopefully in less than a week) will become inaccessible while I remove it and replace it with vB.
There is one thing I’m not sure of, so I thought I’d ask you guys for your input:
Do I use vB’s transfer program to migrate all of phpBB’s user accounts, posts, threads, etc to vB (including all spam bots & spam posts)
Should we start fresh, so you’d have to re-register, but at least it would be clean of all of the garbage that’s currently cluttering phpBB up?
Please let me know in the Comments section!
