Alright, it's too much...
« on: November 28, 2014, 03:22:38 PM »
After using RDFRN for a while, it has convinced me to start looking around for different board software of some kind. vBulletin's just too good and this current state of SMF is just... Well, it's more and more apparent these days that it just can't really compete with vBulletin. So I'm gonna be doing some test installs of other forum software and seeing what they can offer me. Also, I'll be having a look at SMF 2.1, a much more improved version of SMF over SMF 2.0.8. (What we have now.)

Alright, I was able to... borrow a copy of vBulletin 4.2 from a friend but...

Do we really want to switch? I might need to put this to a poll.

I demand a poll for if we need a poll.

Would it be a licensed copy that is not used with any other site? vBulletin cracks down on sites violating license agreements or that use invalid licenses.

Would you be able to import all posts from here or would it be back to ground zero?

It's fine. Although I wonder if I should save up for XenForo (guys who made it were originally behind vBulletin)

And yes, I would be able to transfer all threads and posts.

A poll the result of which you'll actually respect this time?

I wonder why you'd care since you're supposed to have left this place a long time ago. Getting sentimental, Slave?

Go ahead and quote me on that statement.

PS. Take note people, I've asked Arnox whether he'll respect such a poll and he's replied but not answered; that means 'no'.

 Coming from the guy whose evaded countless of my questions.. what a retarded hypocrite. I'll await for your autism laden reply..

 I have no quarrels with the current set-up.. VB has it's definite upsides. I'd say its entirely up to you really. You administrate this place.

What have you directly asked me that I have not answered on... "countless"... occasions?

Numerous questions regarding your autism level. Numerous questions regarding your sexual orientation. Numerous questions about your bloodline being Jewish. Numerous questions in the phrase of "Are you retarded?" Numerous other questions I care not to specify.

That should about cover it.

Was anyone else really hoping this was Arnox's farewell thread? Thought the pressure finally got to him and he was shutting this place down.
