We've been pretty busy, and are getting ready to roll out some big improvements to MaximumPC.com. Unfortunately, that's going to involve some downtime while we update the forum software.

The downtime window is from 9am to 5pm. When we come back, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised :)

Ten bucks says phpbb3 and a significantly improved main page like they've been hinting at for the past who knows how long :wink:

When's this system downtime going to be? What day and time zone :?:

Double Ewwwww.

Phpbb is good 'free' forum software, don't get me wrong. However a nice IPB or vBulletin would be so much better. ;)

Guess we'll have to wait and see...

little harsh, eh?

vBulletin isn't terrible forum software. I prefer IPB to it any day. However i'd prefer either to PHPbb ;)

Tis all i'm saying.. I guess we all have our own opinions on forum software, and what we prefer and not :)

Vbulletin isn't bad but watching posts takes too many steps, altho you get used to it.

My favorite forum software is IB. That had the best features.

Answer 1. The changes taking place should provide a performance boost

No. That will never happen.

See answer 2.

We're not changing the forum software (beyond keeping it at the most recent version). PHPBB does what we need and performs well. We don't have any immediate plans to move to PHPBB3 either.

Now, I've got to get to bed. It's a big day tomorrow.

Well that's good. I was worried we'd be going to Jive.
