Suggestion " Changing the board software "

Post by YehiaPC on Sat Apr 16, 2011 1:13 pm

Hello,

Well am thinking in something that would be VERY useful to GeekPolice, since it's already a well known forum and place to help victims removing viruses and also a great academy to teach students to help against malware.

My suggestion is : Instead of hosting with forumotion where thousands of the forums are on the same server

1) Change the web host,where i think surfing the forum will be way faster

2) Switching to vbulletin as it has way better security,easy to be SEO'ed,more professional.

That's just my opinions,Please share yours too =)

I'm familar with vBulletin. I had to adjust to this site. I'm still not as comfortable with it as I'd like. I do like the button that allows you to view unanswered threads. I haven't figured out how the View posts since last visit works. It seems I have to close out of the site each time. That prevents me from keeping the page open during the day. With vBulletin, it has a View New Posts button which I like.

Problem with that is, that they will need to start all over if they want to move host, due to the fact they can't move database.

I thought forumotion doesn't charge for hosting ? they only take credits for domain .. and i doubt that Inferno bought domain from them ?
But yes i agree with you.nothing is better than freebies :smile2:

Nope. I've already asked the boss on the English side and he tells me no. If I can't get my database for my forum (even if I'm Admin on the English Support Forum) then no one can get theirs.
