Due to the age (over 8 years) and sheer size (around 3.5 million posts) of the board, it has become increasingly difficult to fix bugs, including the current problems with preserving automatic login and with combating against spambots. We are considering to start anew with a brand new installation of phpBB that will make things more manageable in this regard.

Making this move would result in the following:
--All existing posts and threads would be archived on a separate URL, and no additional posts will be allowed on those archived threads.
--However, you would still be able to login to the old board and access your private messages and other information, if need be, as well as to search for old post information, and either manually copy & paste or link information to the new board.
--You will need to reregister for the new board, and your post count will be reset as a result.

If we do proceed with this move, it will happen on New Year's Day. However, please let us know any opinions that you have on this move!

Only if you guys keep all your usernames. I've only just got you all pigeonholed.

We're going to spend 40 years wandering the desert, aren't we?

You can try, but I think people will know it's you even if you get a new name.

Someone needs to design a graphic for the top of the page.

Someone should design a theme that's based on the classic green skin.

This is obvious, but I really miss that theme. Too bad I'm not qualified at all to do graphic design.
