United SpongeBob is now on Simple Machines!

Well, it wasn't smooth or easy, but here we are.  We are now running Simple Machines Forums.  Things are still a bit out of place at the moment, but I'm working on getting everything back to working condition.  It will probably take a few days.  In the mean time, please feel free to post any problems or suggestions.

I like this forum software.  I use it on another forum I visit and it's pretty good.  It'll take some getting used to for a lot of people though.

I've used SMF before and it's okay. But I wish the smilies were different; I don't like them.

Why exactly did we need to move? This new forum looks like crap.

I agree it does too. But I'm pretty sure that SMF is harder to hack than IPB.

We're getting new skins ASAP.  I don't really like the usability of this one...

Yeah, im not a big SMF fan, but we'll see how it goes. New skins could be nice, clean up the interface.

There are 3 other choices for skins. I like the classic look the best.

I know that, I still don't really like anything, so I am eagerly awaiting the new skins

Everyone: We needed to move to a more secure forum, it is that simple.  Because of the licensing costs of Invision Power Board (and our out-of-date license), there has been investigation for some time about alternatives.

PHPBB is simply not secure.  Period.  It's free, has a decent templating engine, but that is all it has going for it.

vBulletin looks terrible, and seems slow.

Simple Machines is very speedy (has anyone else noticed the responsiveness of the website), the main URL's are clean (and bot safe) and the templating engine is VERY COOL.

Give it some time while cmonkey and others work on getting a nice spongebob theme up.  For now, stop wining, this IS the forum software we're using.  Try to get used to it, and expect a new skin soon.

(And stop complaining about the dam smilies! =)
