What does everyone think?

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Sat Dec 22, 2012 3:48 pm

I have said why I have started this new Forum, but what does everyone think?

I want to make sure everyone is happy with everything.

Yes its good, but i would maybe shut the old forum down, otherwise its going to be confusing for new visiters to the site, may be just a link to the new forum?

Good idea....

I will leave a link up to the old forum, so that we can use it for reference, as there are a lot of posts, pictures and stuff on there....

I think we can do so much more with this Forum, than the old boring style. It worked, and played its purpose, but its time to upgrade and make it better.

I think its better, but couldnt the old posts from the other site be pasted here. I understand its a monumental task, but think if they are left where they are, this site may struggle for new material, and probably look bare in the short term.

It could be done Phild, but every person would have to do there own posts, or it would look like I have made about 2000 posts...

Lee

The other reason for starting this was to refresh it a bit too....The old Forum was getting a bit of a mash of things, and hopefully this one can be cleaned up easily, posts moved to correct forums etc...

I do understand you though, just means we'll have to crack on and make this one bigger and better....

I could bring some of the old original posts over and get the discussions starting again, get some new conversations on old posts going might build it up a touch.

I have brought a few posts over, the ones most commented on lately, hope this helps....

I have only ever seen one forum/site actually transfer old posts to a new forum before but from what i heard and read it was a job and half... the one thing thats surprising here is how many members have come back already and posted again... Wish my site would do that sometimes.. The only thing bugging me here is the background.. Different coding to a skin i use and compare stuff with.. Still a nice overall theme though.
