I've been thinking of changing the forums from these Simple Machine Forums to vBulletin.* vBulletin is what I use for www.detailingforums.com (http://www.detailingforums.com) in case you did not know what vB was.* vB is a little nicer than these forums and there is more options.* vB, however, will cost me a yearly fee on top of the server cost.

I wanted to see what you all thought of the idea first before I pull the trigger?*

Question???? What would be the significance to us.* Is it for a better reason than what we have now and money wise right now spending money verse not spending any.

It would just be a nicer layout and easier to use, at least I think it is easier.* But it's not for sure and I'm looking into ways to make this forum better right now. :)

vb is always nicer... but we would loose everything we currently have... but guess better now than later

What he said. VB is by far nicer, but also costlier. This program doesn't seem nowhere near as bad as some other "less than VB" places. But if you're going to jump, like he said, better now than later..

If we did it we would not loose any post.

It's up to you, but I think it's fine the way it is, especially if it's free for you

We are going to try and install the new update and I think we'll just keep this one for now.* I just need to learn how to modify it is all.

Brad says he can do it if we decide to.

What vortech said.* Me myself think if we get a little bigger with members on more than the 5 or so that convo everyday, then yes, we can put your money to better use.

It's up to you we will support no matter what.

But seriously.... now we look EXACTLY like WOS
