Default Jason it's time for an immigration...

Hello guys,
I'm member in a dozen of forums on the net and all have been upgrading to new forum-makers during past five years. vBulletin features is now very limited comparing to new scripts. I think it is worth every penny if you could invest a couple of hundred dollars to immigrate to a something like XenForo or IPS Community Suite. all the current date will be preserved and transferred to new forum. it's a SQL job only.
I hope other members support this idea. I know it would be a big change in diyaudio.com history

I think the software used now on this site is about the best that is in use in these kinds of forums. Others have upgraded and the result was not an improvement, with much less user-friendly operation, very buggy operation, and loss of established features. Check out TechTalk as an extreme example of a site that used to work ok but got improved to something that users basically have to fight with to be able to use in any fashion.

I understand that 'updating' will at some time become necessary, if only to work with changes in server software and needed volume. But usability compared to other sites' software is not a reason to change what is already pretty much the most usable audio forum. If only audioasylum, Techtalk, and AVS would use what diyaudio uses.

new version of Vbulletin is very nice to use and very user-friendly. I'm pretty sure it will enhance site ranking within a few months. imagine you can attach images drag and drop. you can have personal photo gallery and countless of other interesting features.

risk reward ratio doesn't seem very high. But as my day job is mainly using putty terminals and vi a GUI still seems like an extravagance

Compared to many other forums out there, diyaudio is one of the cleanest and easiest-to-read that come to my mind.

I wouldn't change it unless there are serious performance or security issues...

No need to migrate, this board is working fine and even an old fart like me can understand how to post stuff. If you change, there are always new issues. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, that's what I learned from a lot of tinkering. Let it be.
