As the title states, I'm going to switch this forum over to phpBB3. First of all, phpBB3 is also libre software (GPL license) and can provide as much, or more, functionality as FUDforum. The reason I didn't go with phpBB3 originally is because I feared it would be too slow and bloated, but I don't think there's a danger of that.

What phpBB3 will give us that this forum can't:
- ability to move posts, not just topics
The idea was that there would be no deletion of posts from the forum, but that posts would be moved to a trash part of the forum.

- guest posting will be enabled on the whole forum

I believe phpBB3 has the ability to enable captcha for individual posts.

- speaking of captcha: no more google
phpBB3's captcha is not recaptcha

- fix the problem of pictures not showing up for some people

- better phone posting
I hope.

If you want to save something from the forum, now would be the time.

Post in this thread suggestions, concerns, etc. for the move.

Nice. Will definitely post more when that happens.
