Forum Upgrade?

As we all know, our beloved forum has remained basically unchanged for quite sometime now. Lately, we have been getting some input regarding changes...more like overhauls...that other forums have undergone. My question to you is would you like to see an update to the forum? As you may or may not know, this forum is owned by a company that also operates several other forums. Here is a link to a forum that has been upgraded so you can get an idea of what we're talking about. Would like to get some feedback and see what you all would like from the forum!

Vote #1:

I have zero problems with the way this forum currently works.

Change is bad. Unless something is broken

Edit: Sorry, I didn't see the poll. I voted there now instead. Or, well, in addition

As long as the functionality and features stays the same, and the only changes are gonna be on the looks and the looks alone, I don't mind.

The other forum looks more fresh, better font to read of, perhaps even lighter while loading the pages.

I voted tweak what we have only if, as @MakisRC51 said, the functionality stays the same.
If the logo changes, I'll be pissed...
Well my wife more than me, because I'll have to buy new T-shirts.

Not in favor of the upgrade. Saw how the sportbikes.net msg board turned out recently (similar to zx10r.net) and didn't like it.


ETA - Ok, I'm *open* to the idea, as long as there will be a choice to revert back to "classic mode" via the "quick style chooser" in the lower left corner of the page (failed to see the other 2 boards mentioned had that feature until I played around on 'em - oops!).

The only thing I can say I would like to see changed is the search engine. It automatically deletes too many words in a query.

For instance, try searching for "What did you do to your RC51 today?"
Every word except RC51 is deleted from the search.

Aside from that, I like things just the way they are.
Oh, except I'd like to have a "Members Roster" page. Would make it easier to quickly look up specific members. (Unless I've missed that feature? )

That's something that's definitely on the table. An upgrade comes with it's share of glitches during the process as well, which is something to keep in mind.

No worries, logo will stay the same!

I'm a member and sponsor for that matter of the ZX-10R.net forum and the refresh works much better in terms of pure performance of reading, retrieving and posting to threads both on a PC and tablet.


Either way is fine for me, but what they really need to do is something helpful to the regular joe members and increase the Private Message Quota a little even 100 messages instead of 50 would be really helpful.

So then you would have a "vintage" RC51 Forums shirt and the opportunity to buy the newer version....Win/Win.
