This is how I feel a little bit. It is a solution but it seems a little bit extreme. It could fix the spam problem but it may create some too:Memblers wrote:Xkeeper, I appreciate your solution to the problem. If phpBB is broken, there's no reason we should stuck with it. I've added a few mods and patches to it before, and usually that involved editing a lot of files manually and was generally a pain. I'd be glad to see it go, but I can't imagine that everyone really wants to move now.
- You have to re-create your account (I guess). What happen if an old member's account from a user that is not active at the moment is taken over by a new user?
- You cannot import the content 100% because it's a custom solution
- You cannot continue existing threads
- The community could becomes fragmented
It's a nice solution but not the appropriate one but at least your intentions are good like I said.
Some time we have to figure out how to fix the current issue and not "tearing the house down" just because it seems the easiest solution. There is always consequences to restart from the ground up.
This is my person opinion, people don't have to agree with it.
By the way Membler, who can update that main page? "Updated in 2005" seems so wrong. We should update that page more often. This is how we find the forum and everything, it should be more active than that.
