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.

Hey Adam,
I agree that if the benefits of the new forum are what you say they are, I definately would not be bothered by a different look and feel in the forum area.
You do a great job and I certainly respect your any decision you think would be best for us.  You da' man!
Thanks,
JSGarner

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.Thumbs%20Up

You know we all love it here, but we don't want to starve to death either.   We'll all be spending that much on gas each month before long.   Ouch LOL

THANX LARRY!!!




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.

An upgrade might be a good change. Only one real way to see for sure.

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.
