Reply To: How do I?
I was a member of the old forum for 10 years, and with the exception of current events and that word game, activity was very low. So maybe restart the word game if you want that sort of thing. I was always bored before because actual computer related topics came up very infrequently.
Now as far as the forum software goes, phpBB (old forum) has a ton of built-in features whereas bbPress (new forum) is designed to have that stuff added via plug-ins. You’d also have to consider that, if we switched and started from scratch again, we might actually wind up with less users instead of more.
I share your sentiments but not being in a position to do anything about it, what more can be said? As a long time supporter, I’d happily volunteer some time to help administer and make any wanted changes to this site.
