I think it is time for an upgrade to these forums. I am tired of my requests to the admin going unanswered. One of my requests resulted in a security threat to my site. I am very concerned about the future of this site, and it appears that the admin do not care about supporting the product. Feature requests for this forum have been ignored. I am considering opening my own wordpress support forum, using either vB or phpBB. I would actually LISTEN to my members and implement the features they request, unlike the admins at this site. I would prefer not to have to open my own board, but to prevent me from doing so, the admins will have to start listening to us. I think it would be best to move to phpBB or vB here. We have over 1400 members! And that does not include the guest posts. I think everyone would find the forum much more useful if it had more features. I see a lot of people discussing wp on cafelog's forum for that simple reason. We need a single place where we can all get help.
Things that we need in a forum:
Ability to PM
Ability to edit thread titles
Also, guests posts should be disallowed. It is a security threat to have them enabled
Postbit appears on right side of post?
