Yes, that's right, the forums are changing once more. For the handful of you that continued to use the cruddy Vanilla forums, you knew this was coming. It's back to MyBB, and honestly, I like what I see. If you care for more details about why this change was made, read on.
Note: All accounts registered prior to February of 2015 have been transferred over, and your old login credentials should work. If you registered your account during or after February you may be required to register a new account. I apologize for the inconvenience.
What was wrong with the old forums?
The old forums, to put it lightly, were garbage. When we first installed the Vanilla forums it looked like a great way to bring wolf-den.net into the modern age. They were clean and added some social aspects such as User walls. For a brief time they worked well, and so we kept them.
And then people tried to use them.
Once we got some threads under our belt it was quickly discovered that the forums where woefully unfit to handle large amounts of data. It became difficult to find what you were looking for, and the act of posting a new discussion was woefully unintuitive.
Then things started to break. Not just a thing here or there, but all the things. Moderation options had to be done on a thread by thread basis (no batch actions), post counts were inaccurate or not counting at all, alerts never really cleared, new threads didn't mark themselves as new... It's a pretty big list.
And so here we are, back with MyBB, something I think everyone is comfortable with.
