    I’m considering upgrading our forum software and looks. How attached are you to it all? Moving ahead would also mean some changes, new features and some short term inconvenience…

    Go for it Dr B, Might as well see what an upgrade will bring ๐Ÿ˜‰ Could be fun, any idea of what the new features could be?

    Ah if its buggy at the beginning its not the end of the world, will just make it a bit interesting for a while :crazy_diz

    I’m a bit for and against..
    Would like the upgrade but not the change of looks :bounce_g:

    PV’s one of the best looking forums I have seen on my way around the net

    (and I have seen a lot)

    Yes i agree with you Angel – PV is easy on the eye, very user-friendly, unlike so many other sites. I usually give up and leave as i just can’t be bothered to try and navigate around the place!

    If it stays as user friendly then why the hell not?

    Go for it!

    I put a lot of time and effort into both in the past so I’ll make sure we keep both. And the existing skin isn’t available for use in the forum version I want to move to but should in future so I’ll make a note of keeping an eye that as well…

    I’ve bought the unbranded version of the following skin and I’m open to maybe buying others…
