Q why couldn't we carry on with phpBB2?
A we could have done, many phpBB2 sites are still up and around
Q so why did we go to phpBB3?
A it's the next version up! it's more efficient, it uses cache memory and many innovative techniques to achieve the operation and additional features that we like
Q for instance?
A for instance administrators have been handed a literal GOLDMINE in new tools and resources for handling spammers - finding members - dealing with members and a whole lot more
Q for instance?
A for instance there is now a moderators control panel - this did not exist in phpBB2
I won't bore you with anymore but basically phpBB3 is the new generation, it is HUGE for site supervisors (big plus for admin staff) and has a massive amount to offer users too

Q why bother?Memory like water wrote:yes..... but why?
Call me an old stick in the mud, but I see a template as a means to an end. Haven't we been through an exploration of the available templates not long since?
Have I missed the point (sorry!)
A a lot of effort has been put in to bringing members a CHOICE of different styles to use when visiting or participating in the site - there's no point in leaving all these templates in a dusty pile getting no attention
please do have a look at the "TEMPLATE OF THE MONTH" the current one is "fae_forest"
Do you use the BOOKMARK TOPICS feature?
with the bookmarks feature you can flag any topic as "YOUR FAVOURITE"
this is a great phpBB3 feature, very useful and basically provides you with your own personal folder of YOUR FAVOURITE THREADS
how good is that?
okay, enough from me - please help the site by leaving some photocopies of our site STICKERS for your mates to see
