Vette(s): Used to own a 1979 Corvette now owned by JB79
Hey gang. I am considering upgrading the site's forum software (again) to something called vBulletin (used on Corvette Forum & Corvette Action Center). Their latest version, 3.7 has many of the features built-in that I was looking to add to C3VR.com - detailed member pages, photo albums, etc.
The issue is that it is written in a programming language that is different than is currently in use on the site. So, the forums may have to be a completely separate area of C3VR.com. It may not have the same look and feel.
I think the benefits of the new forum will outweigh this issue. Do you guys think you'd be bothered by a different look and feel in the forum area?
I'm also hoping that I'll be able to keep you from having to log in to both the site and the forum separately. I'll have to research that some more. Also, I won't do this if I can't bring over the existing library of threads.
Vette(s): 71 Colonnade Hardtop Coupe
Torch Red with black interior
originally L48 built to push around 360hp
I really love the easy navigation of this site because I'm so used to it. I am in favor of anything that will benefit us, the site and you Boss. So whatever changes you decide I'm sure it will be for the good. And like John said, don't matter what the site looks like, I'll still keep comin back.

[QUOTE=Dejablu]...You couldn't drive most of us off, no matter what....[/QUOTE]Really!?!?! Hmm... I smell $1000 monthly memberships in the future! [/QUOTE]
I dunno...I visit CAC very rarely, but never really liked the format there. Amazingly enough, that is the same format that the new NCRS Tech Board went to...
That being said...I've been here long enough to have witnessed at least three forum format changes...each one better than before...I'm still here. Yer gonna have to try harder if ya wanna git rid of some of us, Boss....
Whatever you decide, we'll stick with it.

I like this as well as any other forum I am on(3 others ). Maybe better. I don't see the need to spend the extra time or money if it isn't necessary unless the the long term benefits greatly outwiegh the short term.

I trust your judgement Adam. I go on the Corvette Forum once in a while and it's very easy to use, so I don't think anyone will have a problem with it. At least C3VR will not have any of the idiots that you find on the CF.
