oh whoa. is the not phpbb anymore. how disorienting.
Yes, we’ve switched to the native Drupal forum software. We’re trying to make sure we replicate all the key features of phpBB, and we’re getting pretty close. The last piece is full mail 2 forum and forum subscription support, which should be done today.
There are some advantages to using the Drupal native forum–we don’t have to synchronize user data between two platforms, and we get much better trackability of user contributions throughout the site. You’ll see on your user page (my account) that all your forum postings are listed.
I hope it’s not too disorienting for you or others. Let me know if you find anything specific that needs fixing, please, and we’ll get right on it.
