Well it looks cool :)  One problem they might want to look at is the fact that ‘=’ cannot be placed in a url.  At least I couldn’t get it to work.

Why the hell did I have to recreate my user name?  Is it too much trouble to export the old users and passwords and create the accounts for us?  Damn, what a pain in the ass.

Anyway, I like the new look.  What was the reason for the move?

As a matter of fact… YES..  The conversion script is still being worked on (for posts anyway)

If 5 minutes of registering is a pain..  You need more patience..

This is not an MD5 board, it uses much stronger encryption - therefore the encryption scheme between this and phpBB is TOTALLY different. The old MD5 scheme needs to be converted to the scheme used here.

That’s not necessarily true.  I think I only had like 150 or so posts on the old forum, and had been a member for over a year.  I just think it was kind of lame to not convert the whole site over, including users.  If it takes a little longer, then fine.  It’s not like there was a problem with the old forums, other than the rediculously slow intellitext crap…or whatever the heck it was called.
