    I think change can sometimes be bad
    The statement in bold is absolutely correct, but with a new sleek design, more possibilities, and an overall forum upgrade I don't see how it could be bad. vBulletin, although pricey, offers 10 times the support and possibilities as phpBB.

    Don't get me wrong, I think this forum is put together very well compared to other sites forums, but it could be so much better if we pulled some members together to help pay for a license for vBulletin. Just thoughts and ideas.

    @Jrock - That would work and no other forum (that I know of) has this ability. You know that some people are immature on this site, and sometimes me and you can be immature. That would make everyone a temporary mod for every thread they make. I can already see people deleting posts because they don't like the person who posted it or they don't like what they said (non spam). Although it sounds like a great idea, in reality it isn't and would probably ruin the forums.

    Hey guys.... this is an example of what could be done with the IP boards http://www.thehunterslair.com/index.php?act=idx

    They seem to be a good communtity and they really have there shit together on there. I skimmed through and they barely get spam in there threads and i think there rules and guidlines are very nesacarry and help keep it clean. oh They have the warning system too. It may not be a forum of the same genre but i think just by looking around and seeing how everyone treats eachother, we could learn some thing from them.

    @ Jrock - I don't like that idea, defeats the object of having Mods and other users could delete valid members opinions if they don't like them.

    @ Artille - I replied to you about it in chat

    But hold out on suggestions for now, we need to let Danny decide if he wants to get it first. Then how big the changes he wants to make are. People always forget Danny has to code the site

    Would be good to move to V Bulletin, but I will need to do more research on it first.

    Well Danny and I have found confirmation that it is possible to transfer all users, profiles, threads, posts, moderators, etc. to vBulletin using their Inpex Import feature. The only thing you cannot transfer are passwords so everyone would have to confirm their account via email and set a new password (or the same one).

    This is now officially a huge possibility. Just waiting on Danny to give the confirmation.

    Great research Artille, This could make the site even bigger popularity wise.

    Odds are when (if) Danny changes the forum to vBulletin it won't look like the one you quoted. It will probably be slim like this forum is with maybe a background design (LilWayneHQ logo?) and probably the same color scheme.
