I mean, PHPbb2 is very outdated. And I thought maybe with this server failure and all, maybe we could get an update to PHPbb3?

But that's a lot of work that Darkbyte doesn't need to do.

I don't like change

(And last time I tried phpbb3 there where no mods for a GOOD rep and warn system, and the rights management is just weird)

The only mod I've seen that is similar to the rep system you have now is:
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=2135824

Which seems to still be actively worked on by the developer.
Other similar mods are all abandoned already.


What mod do you use for this forum for the reputation?

Yeah I assumed it would be. Doesn't look like the author is around for phpbb3 either.

Change is good in some ways. Even though you don't like the way its set up, you can always get some help if you're not the type to go solo. Now personally I think we do need a little change, just not the whole thing. So for instance, you can update the texture and add more variety of forums to this board. I don't know yur tastes at all, but I think we would get more members this way. With more forums, couldn't you get more profits to settle with the costs? Well, I don't know anything else besides what I have stated, so I hope you take it into consideration and update just a bit of the board, not what the whole thing because I know it would take too much time.

Are you talking about the same Dark Byte who is working alone on the development of Cheat Engine and hate fluffy customizable things? Laughing

I like ugly but effective programs. I don't miss people who are judging everything by the look of something. If CEF would have some ugly pink background with hearts and rainbows and kitties and more eeeeeek, I would still use it because I care about the posts and not about the forum design.

I completely disagree. Looking at that ugly yellow and black theme on the temp location of CEF gave me a headache. Lots of other websites that have ugly and eye straining colors gives me headaches.

This forums' looks aren't ugly, but just bland. Very bland.

Umm...the whole point of a forum is an easy way to organize discussions of what ever the section is about by other members. I don't think upgrading to phpbb3 changes that.

I am actually concerned about the security aspect of it. phpbb3 would be obviously more secure, but afaik, these forums have never been hacked so DB is fixing the security issues himself or just being lucky.

We don't necessarily need a new forum if these works and are secure, maybe do a theme change but you don't need to upgrade for that.

You can all do client sided themes anyway.

Infact, extra themes should NOT be included. Change them yourself, learn. Should be one thing this forum enforces - doing shit for yourself if you want it a custom way. Modifying, cheating, etc.

I actually made atleast three awesome custom styles for this forum and gave them to users who wanted it. Actually, I made an awesome for myself that I always use. PM me if anyone else wants it BTW.

But that isn't the only thing upgrading from phpbb2 to 3 does. You have different things you do in the UCP, ect..,
