    I will wait and see, but every site I use from the French tax office to 3 banks and 2 other forums that have upgraded have been a PITA, loads of new bells and whistles none of which are of any interest and much less user friendly. I have given up with the tax office and gone back to paper and left the forums in question.
    New is not always better, image seems to be more important than substance.

    The substance on LZ is the members posts and personally I'm looking forwards to a search function that can cope with the 3.3 million in the archives.

    Yes there's some bells and whistles that folk can choose to use or not but the important stuff remains.

    So we aren't changing things for the sake of changing things, we are doing it out of necessity. We are currently running 6 year old software, which isn't compatible with the latest secure updates that we need to do to the server.

    Functionally everything will be better. The speed of the forum should be improved, the search will be improved and lots of other little things. Security will also be increased(for those in the know, everything will be https).

    I understand change is a bitch, and we all hate change, but we have got to go through this. I really hope if you don't like the new system, you at least give it a chance and learn it's new ways.

    LandyZone is only LandyZone thanks to it's members, and that is not being changed.

    yeah, if they are beefing up the search with elasticsearch/lucene i'm guessing they are beefing the hardware.

    maybe it'll sort out the 2am downtime :D

    Nah. The only way of changing that is to change the time of Rosie's lunch break or stick a different hamster in the wheel while she's gnawing. :D:D:D

    Is the general theme going to remain the same? i.e. colour scheme?
