Definite "YES". Open source, upgradeable, anti-spam features are 1st class - what's not to like! Furthermore, Rich, Karen and the team have done a wonderful job getting it up and running and so functional.

The view unread posts feature is fantastic - especially going to the first unread post in each thread!

I'm working today (slowly) on getting your "reps" back from the old forum - so that should make a few happier as well. Will also be working on structure in next few days.

I voted YES! The only drawback is these more experienced eyes would like a larger font used.

I voted yes because now the site is usable in Chrome, Mepislovers forum software was so old that it didn't know about Chrome and it was a pain to use (I don't choose my browsers based on one site poor coding).

Also I know what a titanic work was done by moderators fighting spam on the old site, I don't think we've seen yet a spammer on this site (let's hope is going to last)

I was the first to vote, with "Will learn to like it with more familiarity"

I'm getting used to it, and as "the team" refines and adjusts it, I'm liking it more and more. I certainly understand and agree with the reasons for the move.

Congrats to all those fearless members who took on this daunting project!

We need to talk. I'm thinking the exchange rate would work in your favor.

Same here. It doesn't take much to get me out of my comfort zone, so I initially dislike any abrupt change. That said, I'll get used to it. I always do. Eventually. After a bit of whining. And squawking. And complaining. And...

FWIW, the horizontal scrolling problem I was having early on seems to have fixed itself (unless you good folks have done something behind the scenes that I haven't seen mentioned).

I voted yes because I spent a good bit of time on the testing system and got to find my way round then.

I do agree that there needs to be some consolidation so that the screen is not so 'busy' when I log on. But I'm happy to wait for that.

Good work all those who did the production! :clap:

100% yes.

I always had beefs with VB's way of doing business. As Adrian pointed out, Chrome was a pain in VB. PHPBB is one heck of a forum.

One niggle: I don't like the font in the message box when creating / replying to a post. It is blurry and 'dirty'. If the CSS could be changed to standard 'non-serif' so that the user's default font is picked, that would be nice.
