Well some people asked for it and we may just do it. Actually, we will do it..depending on YOU guys.

Upgrade to vB that is..

Share your criticism if you want KartExtreme to be upgraded to a vB board since phpBB is crappy. We just want to see what the members think, because it is the members that make this community strong.

Leave comments and concerns as well.

vB =
Better look and feel. Similiar to SW.net. More options, custom donator user colors. Better skins i think.

Phpbb =
We stay on this n thats all i guess.

vB is Sleepywood. If you want to see what a vB layout looks like, just go to www.sleepywood.net/forum . Honestly, if you guys can afford it, then vB definitely. It just runs so much better.

When we switch to vB, would we have to make new accounts and start at 0 posts?

Umm.. what? I never said a KartRider forum is fail. I said an inactive forum is a fail of a forum, but I said this forum is just starting out. Of course it has to be inactive in the beginning. I mean, everything has to start somewhere.

I say upgrade, but it's your money mun :P

Years ago I was a moderator at these xbox forums (Vbulletin powered) http://www.xboxaddict.com/forums/ now there's over 50,000 members... So if this site gets big at least you won't have to switch over thousands of users (I'm guessing phpbb probably doesn't handle large numbers as well as VB).

.. lol side note, This site http://forum.teamxbox.com/ also uses vbulletin. They were our main competitors... now they have 172,000 members 0.o

... I remember when both sites had less than 1000!

I say move to vBulletin. There are so many inactive members here. So its a good way to pull all the active members (first) and start new. That way, it'll look like a very active forum in terms of a active : registered ratio. :wink:

The only problem is that we can't embed youtube vids anymore. Meh, it's worth it, in my opinion.

Why can't you?

You can obviously embed youtube vid, when the forum allows you to.

Ya mun,

Just google "vbulletin youtube" and you'll find out how. If you can do something with a forum you can probably do it in VB. It's been around for awhile and most large sites use it (or program their own).

There are forums about vBulletin owned by the vBulletin creators themselves. Thats where people ask about setting certain features in their forums, and usually the questions are already answered for you.

How about InvisionFree?

Flameking

Invision is more low tech even though they say they do the same things vB does. Not entirely true where vB has more modding potentials and a wide range of developers helping it better.

basically, more can be done with vB to make things more professionally done.
