You should use a different forum system. There are far better options besides phpBB.

I'm sure that the administration has decided that this system is the best one to use to make it easy on members to navigate the forum.

Dayzee, it might be best to avoid making such judgements that you really have no way of knowing. We'll get around to answering it eventually.

The real answer is a bit complicated and involves the fact that Rick is not a webmaster and that the person in charge of our forums is hosting us out of the goodness of their heart, and Rick would prefer not to impose too much on their rather busy schedule. Thus we're on an out of date phpBB.

^ What Obbl said.

The other issue is that things can get very messy when you swap between forum software. It's very easy to lose or even to duplicate posts. Speaking from experience here, having been an admin on a forum that did swap.

It's just a very time-consuming and involved process to make sure everything switches properly and Rick just doesn't have the time at the moment. Also, as Obbl said, we don't want to presume upon our hosts any more than necessary.

And anyway, as far as I can see, phpBB does everything we need it to even though it is a little clunky at times.

Can I ask what sort of features you'd like to see in other software that we don't currently have, Johnny?

There should be more board styles.
