Question Why do you have a new forum?

PE2K, why did you make a new forum? I'm asking this because I liked the other one better. And anyways, this costs money while Proboards doesn't.

Proboards deleted my forum due to the "Mixed Foreign Language" board, the rule is "only English forums." I didn't like how they handled the situation, to delete an entire forum just because of one board (they could have just have deleted the board). But anyways, yea, it's gone.

If I was going to start over, my thinking is might as well start over with something even better, and that's vBulletin. It costs money and considered by many the best forum service there is, for a reason, many reasons. vBulletin is probably new to most people, so it will take some time to get use to it, but I think it's great and much better, for some, it might just take some getting use to. Also, because the forum isn't hosted by Proboards or whatever, I have more control over it, I don't want Proboards to delete my forum for some stupid reason they come up with again.

Yes, vBulletin costs money, but it's only a one-time fee I have to pay (well, not me, I'll explain that), pay once, and it's done. Luckily for me, TRO (a good pal of mine and member here at the forum) has generously given the vBulletin he bought.

Well, although Proboards is a good simple board that is easy to handle, vBulletin is the best out there. Sure, he had to start over, but all of the 'big' forums out there have upgraded to vB, although PE2K actually switched to vB cause he lost the proboards board, I think that it was a good decidion anyways. :)

Eventually all of the active PE2K members will return, they just need some time to find their way back to this place.

FT-out :p

I think someone should tell Proboards that it was quite rude to delete a whole forum just because of one board. But I'm really glad there are new forums, b/c that means BESS doesn't block them, and it's more customizable (SP?)

EDIT: And now there are no more glitchy threads (I’m sure Missingno. was in Proboards).

vBulletin is the best forum service out there. I love it and Im Ok with it. Proboards is good two but nothing is compared to vBulletin Phpbb is also a good, well-based forum service.

The only thing I don't like is that I lost some of my old threads that I made from when I was a newb and stuff, and also I lost all of my posts, and I had about 2K or more, so now I'm down to what, 7? all that wasted time posting and knowing people, and now it's all gone and some people think I'm a newb... oh well. I would like to know why the old one was deleted though. I think it should have been kept and had it lock downed so you could look at it, but not post or something. meh, oh well. They'll pile up sooner or later.

Well, after getting use to this vB, its the best. Even though it used to mess up my text whenever I'll be writing my story, I got around that rough edge and did it. I'm just glad that my true friend is back on this forum....I am grateful

Yeah, I think Proboards was waaaaaaaaaaaay better, because phpBB and vBulliten run slow on my comp, and they freeze.

Proboards doesn't have a lot of rules. I'm pretty surprised that they would delete a whole forum like that though

Sometimes i really wonder if Proboards is worried about the expansion of PE2K. u no, PE2k is one of the most popular Proboards forums in the past

Myes, the only thing 'less' is indeed the loading. It used to go MEGA slow, untill i today resetted my computer (throw everything off and instal again), and now it loads within a second, awesome

Sometimes the forum loads slow temporarily, but most of the time, it should be working as normal.
