Whatcha think? Will their new updates kill off the forum or will they still hold strong? Imagine decades of some of the best offroad tech down the drain due to unusable links, and formatting issues. I would hate to see that happen. Hopefully they can keep things working and actually have a forum that has good format on mobile devices n shit. That site now has some old ass software that just sucks, but the content is fucking great.

Depends how good their admins are and depends which platform they're moving to. Fortunately these days software like xenforo has scripts that help in the process of moving database info from one to the other. If they lose shit, might be good for us. Haha.

I really hope they don't turn to shit, but from the looks of things, the admins don't really give a shit about the actual forum. They are just seeing a downturn in profits because the sponsors and ads don't want to be on their shitty software.
Might be good for the sites performance over here, but I still go on PBB a lot for info. Just half the time I go on there on my phone, it has issues and I can't see shit.

Most of the older software relies on Tapatalk. Xenforo has the mobile platform built in so don't need that. It also runs more efficiently in regards to server power and RAM. It's also more secure. Lot of these older forums are running on software that hasn't been updated in years, which leaves sites vulnerable to hacking.

That site has been unusable for me for a while. Have a ton of builds and info bookmarked but the format of the site makes everything unreadable

Dumb question since I’m not really going to look but is it bad on all formats or just on phones?
