Here it is! I still have a lot to do as far as setup and adding styles but I much prefer PHPBB to UBBThreads. More features and I believe people will prefer it to the old boards very quickly.

Lots of options, will take some time to get the hang of it. I think I like it.
Lets see if anon can post.

I like this style board of the ones that I post on, it seems to be the most user friendly. Good luck bringing over the posts from the old board.

mmmm..... I've used this exact board on a couple of my clients sites (I do websites & hosting) and it's ok but .... one of my favourite features on the old board was the 'posts in past 24 hours'. I always went there to see what was new.

I'm fairly certain this board does not have that facility and I'll miss it. I also think that members might find the image posting somewhat alien.

can you change the anon name from guest to the regular anon, i got used to it and it sort of makes them feel more obligated to registering

Everyone is a Newbie

The board seems to be faster. Will need to check it out further before I can offer an opinion.

One thing that I would really like to see transfered here are all of the old recipes. There were some really good ones,

AkCoyote :shock:

There are pros and cons to any system. This message board does not support threaded message viewing either. The authors of PHPBB consider it a waste of time. PHPBB is free and secure, however, and I like that. UBBThreads can keep their dream of $200/year from me.

:P Hey everyone is a newbie now!!! I like it! I do wish I could have read more of the older posts. I think I got thru about 75% of them anyway.

I like the stats the board gives on the percentage of posts you make as well as your posts per day...
3.45% of total / 1.33 posts per day

Also the new styles are nice....I personally like "Electra". Of course, I've got the image on top with elektra is annoying so I have it ad blocked.

You still can. The old forum is still in the same place it always was (for now, anyway).
