Oh god, please never, EVER implement flash in any part of this site. My phone doesn't support it and I spend almost as much time here through my phone, be it at work, traveling, or whatever my reason for not being at my desk, and I'd absolutely hate it if I couldn't access SBG anymore because it's flash now.
I have it bad enough with all the threads and posts centered on YouTube videos.
I have considered it. But the thing is, the current forums are kind of non-transferrable.. So we'd lose everything here, or at least - this forum would become kind of archived.
I think that this version works ok really. It does pretty much everything I want it to do.
Though I always welcome any ideas and suggestions.
yeah, that is the one problem with upgrading.
My experience with "fancier" boards have been unsatisfactory. Lots of bells and whistles and not much practical advantage over what we have. Plus lots of them cost an arm and a leg every month.
as paul already has webspace, a phpBB forum wouldnt cost anything, it's just that none of the current forum would be transferrable.
it's forums like vbulletin that are going to cost loads of money. it's not really worth it, ever, in my opinion. a vbulletin license is $160 USD outright, or $85 per year, and if you DO buy the license, they charge you for updates after a year. THEY CHARGE YOU FOR UPDATES. makes me mad just thinking about it.
but yeah, losing content is lame. it seems like there's always a trade-off.
