    So hopefully we'll be back to arguing about music stands and shorts in a few weeks...

      I'm presuming the new platform isn't vBulletin?



      I hope it's something very similar. As we all noticed with the last platform switch, people around this place don't like change much...

          You presume correctly.



          It'll be Lithium's. From what I've seen so far it doesn't look too different as far a functionality. No idea yet myself what the aesthetics will be though. I'm hoping for a lime green background with cyan blue text and tiny comic sans font.

              It seems we were both part of the same event - yet drew to very different conclusions. You appear to have concluded we are "change averse" ... while I see us having confirmed our affinity for **************** that actually works.

                    The last forum they tried WORKED just fine. And while I agree it wasn't as easy to use as vBulletin, the truth is that a BIG part of everyone's discontent was simply that they were so used to using vBulletin for so many years.



                    Mark my words---I don't care HOW cool, simple or similar the new forum might be, the simple fact that it's different will result in MANY MANY complaints about how much it sucks.

                      You have to be adaptable by the very nature of the music biz. I think I can do the same here. (It's getting better all the time)

                    While I do think a lot of people overreacted to the 2.0 forums, I don't think it was just resistance to change. The Jive forums were pretty much the opposite of "cool, simple, and similar to vBulletin". I mean the software wasn't actually even designed with something like HC's forums in mind but more customer support questions. I can't quite agree with "worked just fine", and I think the dislike the the Jive format was pretty justified.



                    From what I've seen of Lithium, it's not gonna be anything that drastic. I think as long as they don't do anything crazy with the aesthetics we just might make it though this ok.



                    That said you are right- no matter how good it is some people will find fault with it.

                        Both. I don't know how much HC will be able to customize their version, but the layout stinks and it doesn't have many of the convenient features that vBulletin has. Lithium seems to be very intrusive as well, which is why I even remember the name. It left cookies on my browser and the logo was splattered all over the place.

                          It's pretty hard to get better than the vbulletin software for forums, IMO, but we'll see what they come up with.

                            Really? You're complaining about sites using cookies?



                            How do you think your login session is stored with vBulletin?



                            How do you think just about every web application out there works?
