One of the oldest forums online switches to MyBB...
#1
Thumbs Up 
My first official "forum" participation actually started on a Commodore 64 using a 300 BAUD modem accessing a BBS back in the mid 80s. My first internet forum participation was at a site named Ford vs Chevy - which started back in 1999. It's an official "big board" with over 300,000 posts - but there were actually many more than that which were lost years ago after a crash...

Here's the way it looked back in 1999 running Ultimate Bulletin Board (UBB):

And here it is today running MyBB:
https://fordvschevy.com/

It was down for awhile and I did the conversion a few days ago. I just sent out an email to all the members and hope to have some activity again soon. So far, I'm liking the way it looks and works. I'd love a good, solid responsive theme...

What do you think?

Congratulations on the switch, everything looks to be running smoothly. Smile

Even if you have not found a final theme, I'd recommend you to do a few modifications in your current one to fit your niche. A few tweaks here and there would make your forum look much better and stand out in the crowd to call more members back to the community.

Good luck!

Thank you! I will definitely be making changes as time allows. I added a mobile theme for the time being but I do need to update that as well...
