    Man I will miss this forum layout...Its my favorite look in the internet of forums. However the issues we currently are experiencing are sad.

    I am with the other guys that the Xenforo looks pretty smooth.

    I also am a fan of vbulletin forums so if there is one that will be good enough to use that is fine by me too.

    Here is another one I like to use that is vbulletin.
    This one is vbulletin 4.0.7

    NYYFans Forum...
    http://forums.nyyfans.com/

    Probably the same as a vbulletin 4.2

    I'd prefer this kind of look, similar to the TGG layout. Seems like an easy adjustment.

    That or the Xferno one seem to be the best, the 3rd link Petro provided seemed cool but than I saw giant ads in the middle. Smaller ones are cool but huge ads suck.

    Sad story but I also think you should choose the one which you prefer petro! As long as this board exists I am happy

    I'd stick with vBulletin, but I'm sure whatever design you pick will be just as fine.

    If you make the switch to a different format will we lose all posts in the past?

    No, all the posts will stay, as all these forums have converters from vb 3.8.*

    The thing about vBulletin is that it seems to be going backwards. vB 4 is less popular than vB 3 was, while vB 5, as I said before, is just awful. If they continue on the current path, vBulletin will be extinct in a few years.

    I'd be good with whatever. Don't make me look at a black or very dark background with light letters. That never ends well. :)

    It was working for a day or two. IDK what happened.

    For me all these boards seem exactly the same. I like how you can hover over the threads, and see what the OP is. I'm more concerned with the thread merging, and the color layout, simplistic factor, etc.

    So anyway, when are these changes coming?

    I'm a member of NYYFans, and I'm a fan of their layout as well. The same or anything similar for us here would be cool with me.

    Yeah same here. I can get a bunch of other forums on it, but this one refuses to work now. It was working on and off before, but now it hasn't worked for almost a month for me

    I go to some really nice forums with Xenforo, so I voted for that.

    Yeah the forum I frequent the most BigFooty uses the newest version of Xenforo and whilst initially resistant to it I have found it to be much better.
