The version of vB we were using was like 5 years old, and it would have cost a few hundred dollars to renew the license to be able to update it. phpBB is free, and now I'll be able to keep the board up to date, and hopefully more secure.

As for the missing forums... they're still there. I just didn't get a chance to go over the permissions for them last night, so I just hid them for now. They'll be back a little bit later today when I get a chance to sit back down at the computer for a bit. Those forums are barely ever used anymore, so I might make a few changes, but either way, they'll be back soon.

Yeah, the vB license is expensive. When there were more active users it wasn't as big of a deal, but it's hard to justify the cost when there are only like 10 users that have logged in since the beginning of the year.

FYI, it would cost $149 USD (+tax, I'm assuming) to upgrade the license from vB 3.8.5 to vB 4, or $209 USD (+tax) to upgrade to the vB 5, the most recent version. Not worth it for the amount of use the forum gets.

You should have the default phpBB theme back now. I'll make a header image for it later.

can we get the Private PM's changed back to the way it use to be. I have new PM's waiting to be read but I am unable to read it due to the PM box being too full.
I kindof would like to keep all of my personal PM's if thats possible.
