I understand that people don't like change. But the forum is a lot of effort to run, and in terms of premium subscribers and such, it's a nightmare at my end. With a forum integrated in with the site, we'll be able to add new features, and book offers, subscription discounts, referral schemes, etc. All the things we've wanted to do for a long time.

At the moment, in terms of time and effort, the forum is a bit of a millstone, so by moving to a better system, it means we can keep the forum, and by making this one read only, we don't lose any information, but we don't need to manage it and moderate it.

By keeping this one open, and keeping the new one open, we'd affectively have to moderate two forums.
