    Forum Upgrade? Vbulletin? any thoughts?

    Post  GM B-Body Forum on Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:35 am

    What do you guys think? I like phpbb, and i like this forum, its clean and simple, but im hearing vbulletin is way better. And i dont mind paying for a vbulletin license if it really is worth it.  Anyone out there with any forum experience?

    I don't have any experience running a VBulletin site, but I know it's widely popular being a forum USER.

    I like it, but then again, this site has most of the features I expect too, so no biggie either way I suppose. I need to post here more, but my car's been put away for a couple months and I just haven't been thinking about it!  Sad

    I generally like this layout, but I could go either way if you decide to upgrade. Hopefully, all of the current threads, photos, etc. could be retained. One thing I'd like to see is a beautiful picture of 77, 78, or 79 Caprice 2-door in all that empty gray space at the top!! Make it a '79. I'm biased like that.lol Maybe you could rotate images once in a while or something. Just a thought...no pressure.haha

    after some thought i think ill stick with this one, ive read some people couldnt transfer posts and members, so ill play it safe, there is nothing wrong with this forum, so i guess if it aint broke dont fix it lol.
