> I was wondering, after looking at many other clan forums:
> We are the only ones around that use IF, which has many security flaws. The other, big, clans use either ZB or IPBFree.
> So, I decided to make a IPB forum for us.

> I was once told that this wouldn't go forward because IPB's interface would be too much different and people wouldn't get used to the new forums, as well we losing all our post counts and posts.

> I fixed one of those problems:

http://ancientlegion.ipbfree.com/index.php

> You might recognize that interface. I tweaked the CSS until it got exactly like our current forums.
> And why should we change, you ask:

> 1. There are a few extra security measures that can virtually prevent people from destroying our forums.
> 2. There are more ways to keep track of members activities, IP based.
> 3. Easier to contact inactive members
> 4. Easier mods to install.
> 5. Multiple Languages, and Multiple Skins
> 6. Many fun things to do on forums, like earning money, and buying upgrades for your forum account, as well battling other members.

> The only downside I could find was us losing our post (and pcounts). But I think this will be a very good way to A: Move on to a better forum system. B: Do a huge inactivity-check on all forum accounts.

> What do you say?

We have used this forum for well over a year, and it has satisfied all our necessities and more. I don't think anyone here, myself included, fully comprehends the amount of time and effort put into making these forums the way they are now.

I strongly oppose this.

And have you tried out the new ones to see what they'd be like?

> Do you know IPB's sends the admins emails before you can change admins' password?
> (This one I didn't know at all) IPB got a built in IP look-up as well a member IP used log (I think that's somewhat useful).
> And according to Mud and Sisco, you can install 2~3 other extra mods to improve even more the forums security (I still gotta know what mods are those, though sad.gif )

> PS.: But I agree with Lamb on one thing: Zetaboards suck. For now.

> PPS.: Oh and we can have a store on IPB!

> uhm... No. The CAP system was a total fiasco... We'd stick with a money earned per post basis. However, we can have ranks based on post count (I found that today) as well having a member group set at the same time.
