I don't have time to get everything configured here so as I see people register I'll make admins. Kick the tires, lets see what we think. This will only cost about $50/year American to use if we determine this is a good option. I'm good with that, but I'm also good with hosting a better solution than vBulletin.

I did install the mobile app, I would recommend the same. Also, I think there's something to what Cisco said, we really may just have lots of lurkers and pretty much be our own 6 man show most of the time but I think that's fine too.

So bear in mind, this is minimally customized now, I'm mainly looking for impressions of base function to start with. I'll add you as an admin to browse

This style is definetly not something I remember. Forumotion is good on movile, but the desktop version of this site isn't good looking at the moment. There's a lot of QOL changes that could be made. Majority of what I learnt about the coding on forumotion was from reading their support forums, it's super informative. You can do a lot with the coding, use new themes and code the colours and pictures you needed. Hell, I taught Rich how to do it and he was super old school with computer technology. Doesn't take long to learn, but you can easily make a good looking forum on here and the servers are pretty great.

Can add chatbox also, definetly use the support forums. Can get it up to the same standard as the main site. The only issue I can see you guys having using this site, is the post and post history wouldn't transfer here. You could always send mass e-mail out to people as a newsletter type thing to link to this one also. If you want to do full transfer that is.

Chatbox was enabled but at the bottom, I'll move it to the top and make you an admin Merc. I can spend some time on look and feel, looks pretty customizable.

One thing I do like about this service I can't do (very well) from home is email - using verified email addresses to register is way nice.

So I work 9 til 5 mostly. But I'm familiar with the settings and such of this service, I don't want to mess with stuff without permission. Do you want me to add the sections like they are on the Crypt main site?

I'd say go for it Merc, but I will do a board reset first if we feel like this is a good route to go. I gotta get the credits bought and get the domain name set to www.mmacrypt.com, but I think we can start customizing it before that's finished. We've only had you two here so far but I'm comfortable with this move if that's what we majoritively decide on.

I changed few tiny things in the admin panel. Only added sections and moderators. Not added all the sections 'cause figured can always add later. If you use the support forum, they have in-depth guides on stuff.

Added a reputation system, should have a thanks button attached to it. Think it might only be for topics though?

Added a points system too, for every post or thread someone makes they get certain amount of poins. Figured could use that towards challenges?

Yep, perfect man, this might go pretty quick then. Should I reset this and start it for real with the domain name as dev.mmacrypt.com or something?

You should be able to just purchase credits and buy a URL for it. Without a reset, but I'm super unsure on how that works so definetly worth checking that. But the admin panel is super user friendly to use, as is the coding on the site. Can manually upload the button graphics etc to make it look like the crypt. Probably take a week or so to work out the kinks and get it sorted.

So what's the verdict? Obviously not everyone is here, but wondering what people think overall. I personally think it's a viable option. It's easy to use, works and I've checked consistently and server is always on

I bought the service, AND I added the domain name new.mmacrypt.com but I'm still working on the ssl so https://new.mmacrypt.com will work correctly. I'm thinking it might be a waiting thing but we'll see. I'll change things to www.mmacrypt.com when we've communicated the change enough on the old site. The more I interact here the more I feel like this is the move we're going to need to make.
