I've been meaning to make upgrades to the forums and changes to the forums as a whole.  So far, I've drawn the distinction between RvR Forums and PvE Forums and gone as far as to draw the "Member" distinctions between RvR Members and PvE Members (recent change).

Moving forward, if I can manage to find the time between 1. child, 2. work, 3. my desire to play GW2 in my free time rather than flush out forum issues...

Caledric recommended moving the Enjin forum/design.  And honestly, ID LOVE TO.  It would be much easier to administer (I hope).  However, the real problem with the Enjin system is we would have to give up all of our current forum history.  This I don't like.

I messaged Enjin and their response was their Forum conversion option is currently turned off with no ETA on turning it back on.  So, there is no option or work around to convert the current forums to an Enjin forums.

What this means is staying with what we have and moving forward with the upgrade(s).

1. The forums will be upgraded when I find all the information needed to do so.
2. We will be upgrading to the latest IPB Forums + IP Gallery (we have) + IP Content (already paid for) and possibly IP Blog (later if needed).

IP Content will allow us to make the website/forums look and operate much like the Enjin stuff anyway.  At least that's my understanding.  It will of course take modification(s) to do so.

Sounds good to me.  Feel free to ask for help and where I can I will.  Still no job set for October 2nd, so might have a bit of spare time the following weeks.
Looking forward to GW2 and being part of a group again.
