One thing is if we did not switch and our site grew so much we would HAVE to switch anyways. Remember we are better losing everything now then when we have ALOT of members and posts.

Remember: we can not put both forums together.

Every home needs a solid foundation. In my opinion, if the forum is going to move the time would be before the game opens. We still have access to the Elf Island blog entries, so those could probably be added back in. Then when Elf Island opens, the new forum could possibly contain the history from the day EI opens for the players.

For most of us that mainly post to the forum or go to the chat room, I don't expect there to be too much of a learning curve. If we do have to learn a few new things it might be good practice for all that we have to learn in Elf Island when it opens.

Just my 2 or 3 cents...okay 5 cents.

Happy rendeer

I'm all for the switch Smile.

To be honest guys, it really doesn't require any extra work on our part, it's actually nicer and easier to view.

Agreed, if the site staff are up for it, they are going to do the extra work, we won't, we will just have to register.

I didn't vote, because I too am not super computer saavy LOL

Not sure the differences between the 2 are, but I know if it betters our little forum community here, I'd be happy to move over as long as I know so I can save all my info here.

But will we lose all what we've won here, or does it all transfer with us?

Thankies

If you mean awards, I think we will only get our founder awards.
Don't know about chat events, etc...

Yes, I would register there, but to be completely honest, while there are some minor differences between this host and VB, there isn't much of a big difference from where I stand. Are there moderating-related differences?

Have any ideas on the URL? Or are you planning on keeping the same address?

Moderation tools are 10x better for Mods & Admins. Also for the members we will still have the chat, but we might also add an Arcade. Not sure if you're into that or not but it should be fun. Smile

We are hoping to still have the same domain www.elfislandforums.com which might mean the site will have to be completely closed for a few days.

If we do change over, which looks most likely by the votes and the improvement and all.... I think because we still a super big forum yet that it would be nice to copy over our awards we've received. Just a thought, pretty please Very Happy

I find vbulletin easier to use.
I think it would benefit EIF, and yes, I would register.
