Peedldude, Impossible? This is Penguin Magic. Nothing is impossible!
The boards seem to use PHP. All of the entries are probably in a database and should be "faily simple" to port over to a new system. There are a lot of good BBs out there. I'm sure that as the use of the Boards grow, then need for better boards will be seen and the things mentioned in earlier posts will be implimented. I just hope that people don't refuse to use the boards because of these deficiencies. If that happens, the boards will die and even well implemented boards are useles when there is no discussion on them. (Wow that was not very magic related.)
