ADAPT!!! I will, however, say that I myself do not like change. But guess what, sometimes it has nothing to do with the person/place/thing (PB in this case); it sometimes has to be the fact that admins and such get complacent with how things are (V4.5). I love ProBoards and loved V4.5 but I strongly encourage their changes to V5 and future releases. Yes, there are also things I disagree with that maybe was or wasn't added and I thought otherwise... but it's not my choice ultimately. But from a birds-eye perspective, V5 is going to be great. Not just because it's got shiny gradients and lots of bells and whistles, but because of it's more tight-knit integration with you and me. What? Yes, Patrick and the admins/devs who wrote (are writing) the V5 (and 5.x) software have us in mind and although this or that feature may or may not exist you have to keep in mind that they can't please everyone. That's a fact ... get over it. Learn to adapt. The whole point of V5Beta was to TEST the software and report bugs not rant and rave how it sux (which it doesn't). Plus it was a BETA that we were using. Move your H/F over, create your themes, test bugs, etc. If a H/F doesn't work and you coded it then LEARN the coding and fix it. If someone else coded it then ask on the dev boards for them to update it (if they haven't already). Therefore, most H/F issues should be resolved in one of these two cases OR by way of the, WAIT!, NEW FEATURES (plugins!). The old adage stands tried and true here "There's more than one way to skin a cat". Thus 99.9% of the things we see and do in V4.5 still exist in V5 and/or are enhanced in some form or fashion. You have to get out of your complacency and live and learn. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made and I trust that the ProBoards staff were wise enough and had integrity when choosing this/that feature to keep/add/remove to V5. So you have to ADAPT. I have and will adapt to all versions PB releases because that's what an admin/owner should do. Stand up in a kind, open-minded facet and work with what you've got.
I'm positive I'll get some who agree and then those who disagree. To each their own.
ProBoards, good job with V5 and keep up the great work!
I couldn't of said it better myself.
