You could've paid some expert to imitate your old style.

Every designer we have had, who has tried, have given up...

This is a message from one of our most active and loyal members...
It is very interesting though, how everyone just left...
Like bam... runehints died in less than 24 hours... Its weird
But yeah... I see. And we cant go back to phpbb2 I guess?

SInce the forum just died i think there is something more to it than just people disliking your style.
I agree, there is a huge difference beetween what you had and prosilver, but rebellion of this magnitude is rather unbelievable.

Did they log in after the conversion? Is their password Ok?
I recall there was something funny with them at one point. Would explain people leaving suddenly, because they cannot log in or reset their passwords.

Though, looking at your forum index i find it repelling. Too many forums, too many subforums... Too much to think where to post what or what the site is about.

Yes, this is something we are considering, expanding the whole forums back to look just like the phpbb2.

I am 100% sure it was not the passwords, as many users who used the forums contact me every so often asking how runehints is going. I would say about 40% of the active users.

The reality is that people are fickle and do not like change.

I stopped developing themes when phpbb3 came out because I didnt actually like it and I know from a lot of feedback many people felt the same way. Personally I think the admin area is far too complicated - pages and pages and pages of options. For an average web user who wants a forum, its too much. Thats just my opinion though.

Times also change and my own personal opinion is that the web is moving away from the whole "forum" community into something else.
Forums have a history of being breeding grounds for trolls.
This is reflected in some of the extremely nasty e-mails I have recieved over the years for simply providing themes for free. I had one this morning from a guy who basically threatened to "steal my artwork but only for his own site".
The world has moved on into a blogging/social networking area - or maybe just I have.
