PostSubject: Poll #7 - Board Transfer   Thu Nov 12, 2009 4:38 am

The staff of AWOC have been discussing this matter very seriously and decided to put up a poll so that we can get a general idea of what YOU, the members, think.

Should we transfer the board to a different board type?

This would mean that we would have to start from scratch. Year zero, so-to-speak. But, it would also mean it would be easier to moderate.

I'll post a list of pros and cons so you can get a general idea of what to expect.



Pros:


  • More moderation options
  • Easier layouts
  • More customisation features
  • Better forum features
  • More skin options

Cons:



  • 'Year Zero' This means we have to start from scratch. We can't transfer any data from this board to the new one. This may also discourage members from re-joining/posting.
  • Possible server issues (But, this is a risk with any hosted board.)
  • New layouts (Could lead to confusion.)
  • Bookmark changes
  • Less interest (Possible, but not certain.)
  • Customisation options may not be the same
  • VBulletin ONLY - Purchase board software + license itself (EXPENSIVE)/create account on hosting site and upload of software using FTP. (Takes longer.)


For examples of forum types, please visit the following forums (Permission attained for posting.):

I like the idea in one way. But, its just about how many people will get tired of it having to rejoin and get their count up again. Ah well, at least it'll sweep away all those lazy people who don't post.


(PS: Proboards.)
