forum software upgrade
I'm thinking about upgrading the software that runs this site - not only for the chat, but so I can install modules that enhance the forum administration features, which are dreadful. I really want to be able to split and merge threads.
On the other hand, I don't want to break what's already here. For example, the themes in this forum I wrote myself, and I don't know if the format breaks with an upgrade. I'm looking into all this.
I also need to do this at a time when people aren't logged in because the forum will break for a while. It won't be today because I have social plans.
