Change forum script?

Chris Lin got his blog up after some downtime. Reading one of his latest asides about the Santy Worm, I’m starting to ponder more about my forums using IPB (Invision Power Board) 1.3.1. The latest version is 2.0.3.

To be on the safe side, perhaps I should just nuke the forums right now and utilize another forum script. At the same time, I’d be weeding out the extraneous members that can’t or won’t frequent anymore. (I’m thinking of PunBB.) Oh yeah, and I think it’ll also show how many forum members we really have…

Any thoughts?

  1. I don’t backup the forums often, but when I do, there’s just a ton of stuff accumulated. I’m glad it’s not broken, and I know things got patched. I guess I’m trying to reduce what I have on the server to make it easier for me to backup and whatnot. Once again, I’m thinking out loud… 😀
