The old forums worked (well, most of the times)

I actually like this format better in someways... it's a little more logical... HOWEVER, the old format was a lot more user friendly, IMO.

Interesting thing is, both are at about the same stability level :roll:

its php - a assume a reply button can be made. Its just not stock - and what we have here is basically stock ATM.

Give them a bit of time

Before you go around and make any final judgements on the forums give it some time. The forum is really a blessing and a pain all at the same time. Blessing in the fact that phpbb is more scaleable and will give them more options than delphi ever could. Bad in the sense that they have to handle there own servers and apparently they have idiots at the helm.

It's unlikely that we will add many more add-ons to phpBB. The problem with adding plugins and whatnot is that every time you upgrade the base system, you have to re-add on the add-ons, which becomes very tedious.

I liked knowing when someone had read my response and being able to reply directly to someone, not to mention only read unread messages in a thread not the whole damn thread, but it is highly unlikely we will get that here. I much prefer the delphi/beehive format, but phpBB is what we've got and we're probably not going to get much more out of it.

That said, if there is a compelling reason or major support, I am sure we could bring it up with the staff and discuss :)
