as long as we keep the current skins, and don't switch to the super ugly "user information on the left, rather than the top" layout view I am totally cool with this
Well I plan to modify the layout to the best of my ability to follow the layout we have now. At the very least I would want to have our current horizontal post headers ported to IPBoard instead of IPBoard's default vertical post headers, since that is the most prominent difference layout-wise.
And yes, I plan to port over our current skins.
EDIT: I'll need to get the software soon so I can port those skins in advance. So are there any last minute objections before I commit myself?
