I'd love to see a change from vBulletin to MyBB. Honestly though, anything other then vBulletin. I've fallen in-love with myBB the past couple years and it hurts my eyes whenever i log on to this site

Changing is not always bad but the question is: What can myBB offers ? Would we get an event system? what about photos?!

MyBB can offer all of that and more. If you would like, I can create a list of everything you guys would need to do to change. That would include plugins(calendar/events, market, pictures, etc) plus a way to migrate all the current threads/sections.

Advantages
Better User Management
More admin abilities
More plugin capabilities
Better Calendar/event system
Better optimized

MyBB even offers a way to easily merge from other forum software, including vBulletin. The link to that is here https://mybb.com/download/merge-system/

Plugins you would need
Blogging : https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=221
Profile Albums : https://mods.mybb.com/view/profilealbums

Other things
For the airsoft teams link, you can easily create new pages with MyBB and add new teams there. This also goes for any other page/link you would need. Everything can be easily added and adjusted. Themes are very easy to make and many free ones are available. I could even make you guys one.

I don't think it would be easy or overnight, but I am hopeful that it can be revived. However, forcing everything to be done on the AO forum will not be enough and may create push back if done to rapidly. If things come back here, we have to make it worth while for people to stay.

One of the biggest complaints I recall hearing from newbies was how harsh it could be sometimes with asking repeat questions, spelling and grammar and the like. I'm not saying we should not have standards, but one of the appeals of FB for a lot of newcomers was that they could just go, ask their quick questions and get responses. I remember people being "scared off" from the forums.

To wrap this up, I don't see the FB page going away but I think the forum has strengths that FB will never have.

Hello!
It has been a long while since I have logged in and even longer since I have ever posted anything. I thought I would finally return and see if this site was still going. After browsing for new posts I decided to read through this thread and give my 2 cents.
AO is pretty much what got me into Airsoft and this was my main source of information besides Youtube at the time and it is really sad to see that this site has lost as much activity as it has. I would love to see this community and forum make a come back. I agree with what a lot has been said, the main thing I believe is important is Event posting and more community oriented stuff. I know that when I first started out that finding events and fields was so easy using this forum. When places stopped posting events and started resorting to Facebook, I found it so difficult to find new fields and events going on near me, but that may be most because I don't care for social media. I'm not even much for using forums to be honest.
I am glad that you are looking at other options for hosting to possibly have a newer, more up to date site. I personally love the lay out as it is but it can feel dated and clunky at times compared to other platforms.
I think there has been some great advice given and I can't really add anything more to what has been said. I just wanted to basically say that the ideas given have been great so far and would really love to see this community come back and grow again.

Sadly Iltheran, looks like AO is not warm it up for now. This thread is the only "new post" and doesn't look like any other members (old or new) are actively getting involved, not even to talk about HPA new technology. Furthermore, it doesn't look like the owner of the site wants to invest in it. Why? I don't know.

So for now, we need to live with what we got, hoping it will be enough to generate interest or we will keep this site on life support and give up not long after. Heck, I feel more like the janitor than a moderator nowaday
