In about 3-6 months, I expect we'll be bidding farewell to our current forum software (Vanilla) after a decade of meritorious service and moving on to one named Flarum that I hope will allow us to add some new features for the first time in many years. I don't expect to lose any data in the move, and we should be able to keep the same passwords. The look and feel of Flarum is very much similar to Vanilla, so I don't expect it to be a very jarring transition at all. If you have any questions, ask away. I'll update this well in advance of the move.
