Hello,

If we switch to vBulletin we will need all the members to register on that forum. All information will not be transfered (Posts, PM's, Profile Info..) but we can rebuild all of that as time goes on. We are thinking of switching because of several reasons: Friendly Interface, Easier Controls, and better looks. So...

Would you register on the new site? (The old one would eventually close!)

Yes, it would be great to have a vBulletin forum, it is more easier to work with and has more features, I wouldn't mind switching.

I wouldn't worry; I would not mind switching at all! Most of the forums I visit regularly are vBulletin, so I'm used to that interface, and I'm sure many others are used to it as well. Whatever you guys decide to go with I'll stay with! ^^

Of course I would Ink! Don't forget that you need to find a website to for hosting. Forumotion supplies the website hosting, but vBulletin does not I'm pretty sure.

I have to vote "NO"

You don't download ANYTHING. It is just a forum like this site.

Either way is fine with me. I'm sure this is a big decision for you. Please do what will work best for the "Elves in Charge".

(For those of you unsure of what vBulletin is...if you belong to any other forums, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Often it will tell you the title of the software. I did this and found vBulletin on 2 forums not related to Elf Island that I visit.)

Happy

No, you'd just go to the site like you'd go to any other site/forum. There's no downloading or installing required at all. ^^

No download it would just be like the site is now it would just look different. and be hosted by another site.

I have to say " YES ", and " NO ". YES, we do have a great site here as it is, YES our graphics and forums are pretty spectacular. No, we do not have vPlaza, for extra options. Yes, I do admire what the site staff have done, opening up a site from scratch, not using vBulletin. Yes, I think that it was very kind of you asking us members, here on EIF instead of just doing it anyway.

Yes, I think vBulletin would be worth it, in the long run.
I Think that though the members, should vote and cast their opinions, but also, the site staff should do what they think is best for the site, and all of us.

Either way, we'll be here for you through it all Smile

-Melks


For the people who are not sure exactly sure what vBulletin is, check out the site: http://www.vbulletin.com
There's nothing to download, it's a regular forum type of site, that is a bit different from our Forums, here.

I hope it is alright if I posted the link, considering we're discussing this topic and it could be something in our future.

Really, anything that works with the staff and the members on here is fine with me.

I like this site for the fact that it is colorful and built from scratch. I think the staff here have already done an amazing job. Thumbs Up

However, if we do move, I won't mind. I used to go on other forums with vBulletin, so I'm used to it.
