Going to something completely different. UBB has been going downhill for years now and parts of our version are just plain broken and it's not even worth upgrading to stay on software that is behind the times. We're moving to what is basically the standard among forum software right now which is vbulletin. I know I will hear some ahem complaining (to put it nicely) about the change in software as I know there are some who love phpbb since it's a free product and feel we should move to that, but we went with what we felt will offer us the most as far as flexibility, support and active modding community.

This should bring a lot of cool changes for the users and for the company. The whole site is getting a redesign as well courtesy of Tim. In addition, press releases are being 'automated' to a certain extent so that the news page is not being manually updated (you may have already noticed the new press release forums I have been putting up recently).

The only thing staying the same is the store.

For those looking for with this forum, please see Annette as I am retired.
