Among other things, we get proper akismet support - I'm sure you know of the thousands of spam messages that blocks on the main site every month - and wordpress integration. Gravitar is your avatar. If you already have a wordpress login, you will not have to re-register.
I'd be installing the latest release candidate.
The current forum becomes a static archive. No login, no new registrations, no new posts.
Hmm...well, since it seems to be a better place to have the forum, I have no problem with it, but I'll still miss this version of the forum. I haven't even been here for a year yet
I do have a question, though. (Sorry if it's an obvious one.) I'm used to using the onions, so if there's no way to make them easily available like they are here, would I be able to link in the image files in order to still use them?
I'm also on a forum where image files can't be actually shown in posts, so I'm just wondering if that'll be the case or not
Also, I have a pretty much unimportant question: Will it be possible to create rankings, like 'I like Yuki', etc.?
Kerahna: Same database as WP. I should be able to do read-only access.
ninetales: Regular posters will have access to a few standard html tags by default - you'll see actual html when posting, not bbcode, but you'll have buttons to work with to add it in. Hotlinking Images will be supported, as well as embedding youtube videos. Any ranks, like signatures, sould be possible, but a lower priority than other functionality.
moichispa: The current forum will be kept, in read-only mode, for the foreseeable future. If you restart the thread in the new forum, that is your choice.
