I'm thinking of using ZetaBoards to host the forum, because it's got a lot of features that the stupid Forumotion host I'm using now doesn't. Just looking at how Moon Records is set up makes me feel inferior.

Pros:
1. Multiple Themes you can select to view the forum (Meaning my banner pic and kelvin's can both be included as themes)
2. Quick Reply Box at the bottom
3. Minimizable Categories.

Hmm these might have been handcoded in by grim or gil because they are pro, but at least on zetaboards I can actually TRY to do these things. There's just one BIG con.

Cons:
1. Switching over means losing all the stuff we have now. As of now I still don't know any way to transfer it over. fortunately the most important stuff are VN download links and the freeware guides, which are still available on mediafire.

Tell me what you think.

Itd be a pain to transfer all the pathfinder stuff, also regardless of how easy or hard it is to move the pathfinder stuff there just doesn't seem to be a point to switching.

Multiple themes, and better now than later when we have more people and domain name change will be more difficult.
By the way, the switch procedure will go as follows:

I make the new site, and start putting our stuff up on it. The old site stays up for any further reference and to redirect members who haven't heard. I will not delete anything until we're all through.

me -.- clinical studies have shown that an day of no sleep and arguing with gimp results in epic banner pictures and new hotlinks for everything. It's totally voluntary though.

If the themes are cool looking then fine but if they are the generic ones then its not worth it.

I'm fine with a switch. Another pro is that during the switch the forum categories can be better organized and such from the start.
