Are you sticking with Simple Machine Forums or migrating to another software package?
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
We are moving to a heavily modified version of JForum. The stuff used at coderanch.com. Andrew Monkhouse is running point on the transition. He is the "Marshal Commander" at coderanch, a long time software engineer, and author of a book on software architecture. I have some experience with software dev stuff, so I'll be helping a little.
