On the subject of moving....
« on: October 21, 2014, 06:49:14 pm »
I am seriously considering moving off of CreateAForum, as the ads are annoying and  a number of features are missing (fully custom skins?).  There are a number of good ad-free free webhosts and we could easily move. 
PROs:
Better control over content.
Custom skins/features.
No ads.
CONs:
All posts would be lost.
Links to current website would be lost. 

Please post your thoughts.

Sounds interesting. This page would still be here for importing right?

Not sure what you mean.  SMF (the software running the forum) does not supply an export function.  All members and posts would be lost, or would have to be copied manually.

UPDATE:  We are moving!  Yay!
Check out starbricks.worldnet.us   I'm still working stuff out, so please don't use it for general chatting.  Once everything is setup, I will lock this site in maintenance with a link to the new site.

Also, it would be nice if we continued the black, orange n' white colour scheme on the new site. It would be nice, as I am so used to this scheme. :)
