Good day ladies and gentelman. You might already know me from some other places (hello mom, hello dad !), but that doesn't matter. As you might have noticed, this server collapsed under the load of the old message board and was down for several days now.

Therefor, after Wormie, Martin, Braveheart and I worked on it for several days, the decission was made to upgrade to this new forum software this forum - and that's what you are currently looking at.

The downside of all this is, as you might already have noticed, that all posts and member data has been lost. However, it was only a question of time until this would have happened anyway with iB3. If you're interrested in technical informations why all this happened ... you're now looking at a PHP powered forum with mySQL as backend. We are not sure how the memory usage will work out, but this one is supposed to be a lot more stable, faster and has more features.

If you notice any bugs, have any suggestions or anything else, feel free to leave a message and the staff will look what it can do. And now, enjoy your new message board ;)

The boards look a bit different, but not much. As far as stability and speed, vBulletin is way faster and much more stable. vBulletin has been in the game for a long time, and they have great resources to build nice boards too. iB3 is a free board coded by a guy named Matt, and he does it as a hobby. They're playing in the same league, but...vBulletin is simply a much better board. I hope you like it too.

Yes, it's the same board being used at NGEmu. Bobbi is a good friend of mine who, first of all suggested it to me, but also helped me set it up. I like it a lot. :D
