It has been almost seven years since the forum has been updated - both in appearance and software. Maybe it's time to think of updating the place. I've been testing some different forum packages, and I'm really liking Xenforo so far.
From a member perspective, I think it is much better than the current forum experience, and the possibilities for add-ons are much greater since the current forum package isn't really supported any longer.
If all goes well, we might have an updated home in the near future.
