Okay, I don't want to interrupt this process that is in fact "finished". BUT, I thought about something this morning. I know it can be expensive, but what do you think about possibility to buy some paid board software like Invision Power Board (IPB)? It is expensive first time, when you need to pay 175US$, BUT later only after 6 months you buy renewal of the license. I used to be admin of some of these IPB forums, and I know how it is good forum software in the practice.
Just want that you think about that. SMF and other free alternatives are good enough, but they don't provide much of the security, protection against the spammers, and many other issues. With this IPB forum, we would get even small chat room integrated, it is already paid and free up to 5 people. For more we would need to pay more, or transfer to some other irc chat, or something else... but okay, there are not many users active online at the same time, this chat would be even good, who needs more with someone, or group chat there is irc, skype, or something else, that is similar.
What do you think about all this?
Also, I don't want that we hurry and to run after IPB, NOW... because I have just read that they are very soon to make a new version of it v4.x.x, maybe even during the middle of this year, we will see... at least I am looking forward to...
Thanks for your time to read and consider all this... OM Shanti... _/\_
