Speaking as both a Proboards member of the Ant Hill World forum, and also an admin of my own Dalek World forum, I find the changes that the V5 version may bring a bit daunting to say the least. I hope that most of them will make it much easier once it is implemented?
Jen showed me the new admin control board yesterday, as she is a V5 Beta tester for Proboards and so knows more than most forum admins do. It looks complicated, but Jen thinks it will make it better to give staff and other groups more powers and ranking colours. Many of you may be wondering why the staff have been reduced on this forum? As Jen has said, it will be completely reorganized once the new version is installed, so the removal of staff is a temporary measure and Jen may perhaps reinstate some of her old staff, and may also take on new ones at a future time. This is purely her decision to make.
I rarely visit the Proboards support forum, even though I should to learn of any new developments; but Jenant is fully aware of all V5 stuff happening, so if anyone has any questions about the future of the Ant Hill World forum, please feel free to post them and I'm sure you'll find the answer you're looking for.
I think the V5 will bring more fun and give greater scope to all members, those who are staff, in a special group or just here as a member. Let's hope Proboards bring it in fast, as it due to launch next year; and for myself the sooner it comes in, the better for all members.
