I'd love to see a change from vBulletin to MyBB. Honestly though, anything other then vBulletin. I've fallen in-love with myBB the past couple years and it hurts my eyes whenever i log on to this site

Changing is not always bad but the question is: What can myBB offers ? Would we get an event system? what about photos?!

MyBB can offer all of that and more. If you would like, I can create a list of everything you guys would need to do to change. That would include plugins(calendar/events, market, pictures, etc) plus a way to migrate all the current threads/sections.

https://mybb.com/

Advantages
Better User Management
More admin abilities
More plugin capabilities
Better Calendar/event system
Better optimized

MyBB even offers a way to easily merge from other forum software, including vBulletin. The link to that is here https://mybb.com/download/merge-system/

Plugins you would need
Blogging : https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=221
Profile Albums : https://mods.mybb.com/view/profilealbums

Other things
For the airsoft teams link, you can easily create new pages with MyBB and add new teams there. This also goes for any other page/link you would need. Everything can be easily added and adjusted. Themes are very easy to make and many free ones are available. I could even make you guys one.

I don't think it would be easy or overnight, but I am hopeful that it can be revived. However, forcing everything to be done on the AO forum will not be enough and may create push back if done to rapidly. If things come back here, we have to make it worth while for people to stay.

One of the biggest complaints I recall hearing from newbies was how harsh it could be sometimes with asking repeat questions, spelling and grammar and the like. I'm not saying we should not have standards, but one of the appeals of FB for a lot of newcomers was that they could just go, ask their quick questions and get responses. I remember people being "scared off" from the forums.

To wrap this up, I don't see the FB page going away but I think the forum has strengths that FB will never have.
