    We are currently using xenforo forum, but a lot of complaints have showed up in past year about it, so i'm making a poll weither we should move back, we can move back to SMF forum without a problem, the only neccesary problematic thing would be another password reset for all accounts.

    I would like to know why so many people vote for yes. I don't understand why go back to SMF if this is perfect.

    If we are planning to stick with Xenforo, can we at least get a new theme for it? The current dark and light theme is nice but there's a chance we can explore other options to make it look nicer than it is now. We might as well update the logo that Incognito made for it (which is cool as well).

    I voted yes, due to simplicity when we had SMF. But I do, however, like the features of Xenforo as well.

    Another reason I voted yes is because on my tablet, it lags when trying to type in the reply box with Xenforo. I had to disable some features of Xenforo to speed up the typing (hide signatures, hide profile pictures, etc). It's like typing at 5 FPS.

    overall xenforo user interface is not very tablet friendly, i can do mouse tracking menus with my galaxy note 4 with the stylus, but they don't work too well for touch, layout is also a big mess, it's not a very responsive design, and yeah - it lags for me too for some reason.

    We are looking at either switching over to the exact same old forum, however we would like to purge the members accounts and allow a SAMP/SMF joint login. If this works you would use your SAMP login information for the forum. It is undecided if we will transfer the XF posts to the NEW/Updated old SMF forum.

    I really like the features of this forum but I still think the layout leaves a lot to be desired. With SMF, it was the complete opposite.

    Now I'd love to go back to SMF but only if we can add some features that we didn't have on the old forum but have here (the Like system, better customization etc).

    I'm sure we can put up a lot of these addons to SMF.

    Currently SMF is winning with overwhelming majority, i'll make some experimental transfers of data and see how it copes.

    We still have the citiez theme and smf installation, it's pretty much reads to be used, except for data transfer and add-ons.
