Should we update our forum to the latest PHPBB software?
Here's my summary of main changes:
- Better for search engines.
Lose ability to use HTML tags in posts, but more flexibility with their content editor which is just like HTML but different tag syntax. <img> is [img /] kinda thing.
Allows file attachments. (and you can exclude ones that could be bad/harmful).
YOu can change your mind and your vote on polls, after people reply with their $.02.
Custom profile fields. For example "bag tag held: #1" would be one I might add.
Custom topic searching
You can password protect forums, so for example we could have a "McLaren" forum that wasn't public and wasn't such a hassle to give everyone access to.
Topic sorting, post sorting
Friends/Foes list. ?
Founder status/Board Creator
Easier to design and edit design.
Instant messaging capabilities.
