Some of you guys already noticed, some didn't but WOWAY just turned 8 years old and it's starting to become a big boy/girl already ;) .

Besides that, this forum software is getting pretty old so it kinda needs a new jacket. This old Invision jacket had past the good times and now it has holes so it has to be replaced.

Therefor WOWAY will be upgraded to brand new software. The choice is phpBB 3.x. This opensource software already showed it can handle big forums and 8 years ago, we started with this software too.

Besides WOWAY will be fresh and new, we also like to give our visitors some extras. What do you think about changable skin (5 choices!)? Or finally an ignore function for that annoying user (except admins/mods)? No CPU Errors?

Anyway, it's a very good update and I'm sure you all will love it.

As the topic title says, tomorrow Nov 8 2009 around 14:00 CET the forum will be upgraded. This can take up to 6 hours to update. Hopefully when most of you wake up, the new forum software will be there.

If you have questions, well.. you know how it works ;)

If you find small problems or anything weird (except for Weird Al). Let it know. The next few days days there will be some minor bugs, so please be gentle with me :)
