On the contrary, John, the only negative response to the new forums has not been including access to the old forums - which, as I've stated, we're looking in to.
The vBulletin forums are vastly more powerful than our previous ones and the restructuring of them to individual forums makes it far easier to post issues and find answers. There is also a good deal more moderation control; I can, for example, easily make a thread sticky for all to see.
We hope you'll stay our customer, but you're certainly free to pursue another course if you wish.
Best - Joe
