    Change can be very good, but does it need to be so shockingly pink?

    New forum software. Good thing and if it improves the handling - even better.
    As long as I get my larger 'jump to last post'-link :)
    Cheers

    I just wish to address some of the points that have been posted so far.

    The colour.
    Like most forum software, it will support style themes, this means that once we have a core base we can build on it and add more style themes to give more colour layouts.

    What will be lost.
    The following will be lost due to the way vBulletin and the way the process of converting works.
    Attachments, in line comments, groups and blogs.

    The main point is that the move will give a stronger core base that will give room to build going forward, a move like this is an big step, so getting the core right now before to much is posted will help limit the lose of data.

    What's to gain?
    Shoutbox, full media gallery, new groups system that supports events, new blogs system. But most of all you will get a better working core forum, that is cleaner and better to use.

    Can not really see it from the screenshot Dave posted, but it in fact does have the icons background from the main site design.

    The design that Albo put up is a very good design, however being fuchsia may be too much for people's eyes . I still say to keep it pink like Albo's design because it is a main colour of the Neotopian flag :) we can't change that …

    Looking forward to the new forum Uncle Spun.
    It seems to have some great additional features that many of us have been looking for.

    May I request a lovely Sky Blue color when you add additional color layouts :D
    I do love the pink as well.

    I guess group system would be ok, however not a big fan of the skin. You guys can get better / do better than that, it dosen't look proffesional enough to fit Neotopia.

    I was hoping on some clean and sharp /flat design with nice colors.

    Wow, your signature is way too large. You really need to change that, it's annoying.

    Signatures should be max 650 width and tall 200px for everyone, if exceed it could be a scroller or so.

    Thank you, Admin. I like the changes. The fact that colors can be changed is a plus. Don't particularly like pink. I agree with Oo_sKy_bLuE_oO about sky blue being one of the choices. Love blue in all it's hues and tones :)

    Moving to a new forum system is a good idea.

    AlboGodZ,
    I appreciate your advice regarding signature size and I will adjust it.

    I would like to ask that you PM with off topic comments and critiques especially if directed towards a particular member. Thank you
