This is just a suggestion and may the people please comment also.
For the new forum:
Not to make it feel like a jail. What do I mean by that?.
I mean that your only limited to pretty much the basics. viewing posts, making a topic and viewing profiles. no interacting,etc.. <- that is very bad, and people come to community forums to discuss,interact,and become friends and get to know each other... etc ..
So please, don't make the new IPB feel like the forum is locked with little features.
This is just general feedback, I really hope it may help.
Make the future forum software so much more community and friends enganging, make it more than just some forum posts... You can have forums and having a strong community relationship MAKES the forum complete and OVERALL so magic and awesome.
Lets say you searched something on Google, and you get a forum running IPB. Now, you choose to register, but you remember with IPB the registration page is outdated,takes long to enter and OVERALL IS NOT FUN. like the style of IPB style itself as of at avg 2012-2013, the current IPB style is not very nice. its too chucnky imo.
LOOK, ok sorry thank you.
reddit style idea:
have the main theme at default, but have a style that can be switched to a simple style.

I use other forum scripts. I can attest to the following and more:
Unlike the 2 big competitors (you know them!), IPB actually posts regular updates that are coming and then delivers on them soon after. You don't wait years. You don't have to follow them around the internet to get their news from third party websites. You don't have to wait for developers to crawl out from hiding behind their computers to say something. You don't have to rely on mockups to make a decision. And you don't have to take sides in a lawsuit.
Templates, IMHO are easier to skin in IPB. You don't have to run through a bunch of files to get rid of the orange and blue pillow puffy rounded shadowy oh so 90's look 2 other competitors have (my personal opinion not meant to offend anyone). You can put your own header, footer, css, etc. into IPB pretty easily. IMHO, it's not that different than skinning for WP.
Nexus is perfect for selling ad space! Keep your own revenue and don't rely on third parties! You can also use Nexus for selling goods, hosting, IP.Downloads, Classifieds addon, etc.
With any forum platform, there are many differences. If you look at just the features you will see things you like and don't like in each platform. None of them are exactly alike. You will miss some features/addons and you will gain some features/addons! However, if you are looking for a platform that keeps you updated, delivers sooner rather than later, and has helpful staff....I'd consider IPB first.
IPB is the leading forum software but many people don't know the name and are not familiar with it.
but that will change. IPB is getting more popular by the day and many people are now switching to IPB.
Caused by hook: "[u][b]Unreplied Topics v1.0[/b][/u]"
What caused this when the hook, "Unreplied Topics v1.0" was enabled?: - New topics very fast, topic was made every
My guess/Overall: [img]http://cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/fatcow/16x16_0600/note_edit.png[/img]
A user was making topics and posting them constant. New topics were made every "3-15" seconds.
With the hook "Unreplied Topics v1.0", it just caused some problem.
