People tell me that if the forums aren’t broke, don’t fix it. They may not be broke, but they’re outdated versions of IPB. I’m definitely not sure if they’re open to hacking. However, I’m liking the speed and simplicity that WordPress has brought me. Speaking of speed, I’m really leaning towards switching the forums over to PunBB. Why? This is why.
I have a feeling my friends that do frequent the forums might not like this. Until I get more feedback, I’ll be trimming the fat from the forums. Here’s some tasks I’ll be going through:
- Removing members that haven’t posted at all
- Removing members that haven’t posted in a year, and don’t seem to have any signs of coming back
- Deleting images from really old posts to free up server space (also making it easier to backup the forum folder)
The first two items won’t be done until tomorrow night around 8:00pm PST. In any case, could you please give me some of your thoughts on this between now and then? Thanks!
