This format is very easy to read and navigate. It looks much better. And you can add sections and get to them a lot easier. I just found it better to use and post on. Anyway we could try this out?

That board uses vBulletin - entirely different forum package.

As someone who recently upgraded someone else's board from phpBB v2 to v3, as D did recently here, I can tell you, it's a MASSIVE amount of work just to do an upgrade like that... forget switching over to a completely different back-end (not to mention, without a converter, you'd lose the entire message and user base in the process).

I find it hard to believe how D could make his work of love any better than it allreay is, was, or could be in the foreseeable future.

His work remains an undaunteded devotion to the ideal that any single team of individuals can capture the imagination, hearts, and minds of generations, and the renewal that only a new season can bring.

Love that "we" bit.

D busts his ass on here and everyone is a critic. I know he asked for suggestions, but damn.

Here, maybe "we" could learn to spell forum before you want to have the entire forum overhauled for your preference. :tp: :clown:
