    We will take key elements of the new design (which isn't finished, by the way) with us to xenForo. The the cost of the design is not lost when we swap platforms.

    The Complete vB guys. I couldn't recommend them in all honesty.

    AVSForum have been around a lot longer than us and are a US based AV retailer who happened to launch an AV Forum which took off big style. David Bott (and others) have done a good job with AVSForum, I think.
    We at AVForums are UK based and do nothing but run the forum. We started after AVSForums so have less traffic, but given that we have a significantly smaller market, we will always be so, I think.

    Either way, IB dropped the ball big style with vB4 and nothing I said over a year ago made a jot of difference.

      Not bad. Not awesome yet. Surely some very cool elements.
      One of the best advancements I see is that you now have a lot of free space on forum index and forumdisplay. You could benefit form this by increasing thread title character limit. Or reduce the wasted space between subforum columns.

      I always found the default forum icons butt ugly. Why not throw them overboard?

        Why? From the announcement:

        Interesting! I wonder how much Kier charges per hour of job. Maybe US$1,000?

          Can't actually see the announcement. In fact they have closed it off to the public.

          Yeah looks dodgey.
