    Exactly... I couldn't have said it better, myself.

    Do recall that simply because subforums are possible does not mean that you can't have regular forums...

    Also, I know that phpBB has a limit on the number of forums which has annoyed some people.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with our current system, but if Core Wizard wishes to switch to vBulletin, I won't hold that against him.


    On a different note, I would be interested in hearing from you and the rest of the staff. Y'know, Linux experience, what you hope to bring, just a bit about yourself.

    Ok, we have looked into it, and we see that for the benefit of the forum, it is better to move to vBulletin for several reasons, for example security, I have seen many phpbb forums defaced because of security holes in its code, and none in vbulletin.

    I'm afraid the move to vBulletin is definite, don't worry that we'll have to pay for it, it's not you are paying, and it's simply better.

    The website will under go a lot of changes, we simply think that it is for the good of the website, will have a lot of sections to it. We can not vote on a wide scale for everything, since there are always people who want it and people who don't, if we vote, we'll end up with a lot of flames between the members, it has been half a day since I posted my post about vBulletin and you already started fighting over it.

    I repeat, the changes we'll be doing will only be for the benefit of the website, and only to grow it more and make Linux more interresting. That's it, no more, no less.

    Thanks,
    Core Wizard.
