      The changes that come as standard should only serve to enhance the user experience - the basic premise of UKMIX will remain as it is now, though not everything will be precisely the same. We can address and specific issues once we're live.

      I'll be steered by the UKMIX community on this one - along with feedback on relaxing the content rules, I'll ensure that we get clear feedback on this when we run the next survey.

      Good question, and I hope not - I do anticipate some teething issues though early on, but we'll iron these out. The reality is that UKMIX still gets between 20-25 million page views per year, so we won't know what the impact is until the impact happens.

      For those that access on their mobiles, there will be a choice of style (either access the full site, or access a much slicker mobile version which is super fast but won't have the same design).

      If you let me express a different point of view about the software - phpBB is better than the kinda 'heavy' vBulletin in functional aspect. The first one is faster while the components are loading and has got simple, user-friendly design. However, it usually causes problems if it has to be modified somehow. I hope the new system will solve some issues with longer posts including embedded videos because some browsers block for about 10-15 seconds or just crash.
      vBulletin is a "heavier" software, no doubt - but UKMIX has a very basic design (which we're carrying over), so it shouldn't be too different. Once modifications are added, the loading speed might slow - and it goes without saying that prior to making any changes like that, these things will be properly considered.

      Good question - topics, posts, private messages and passwords should all carry forward.

      However, I will not be transferring avatars over - on the new UKMIX, I want everyone to have avatars of 200 x 200 pixels - nothing less, nothing more (so that the pages look neater), so we'll start afresh.

            Thanks for all the work you are doing on this, Wayne

            I am excited to see the changes, and a $12 fee is fine for me.

                      Canít believe UKMix is 20 years old. And Iíve been here for almost 15, that scares me personally even more haha

                      Even tho Iíve been quite absent in the last few years due to personal issues, I usually take at least a quick read every day and as a person that always love changes, Iím super excited to see whatís ahead!

                      Thanks Wayne, Lars, Matthew and everyone else thatís been working so hard, endlessly and tirelessly through the years to keep this board healthy and safe, may we continue to cherish this community for a multiple of 20 years more <3

                        I can't believe that UKMix was 20 years old. I'm happy to congratulated its important, historical milestone from UKMix.

                        Despite UKMix forever remained in changes until now, I'm very excited for more UKMix surprises and new UKMix features coming your way as soon as possible. I can't wait for it!

                        Thanks Wayne, Lars, Shane and Matthew for being did a great and amazing jobs during its successful first 20-year period of UKMix!

                        Happy important, significant anniversary from UKMix!

                          About Time they Change it.

                          The board is slowly dying ....more and more.

                          Too many good members left too
                          Maybe they should also make a new Design. A new color ecr

                                        That will give you an idea of some of the benefits, but it's by no means exhaustive - I'm still working on an exhaustive list but I anticipate that the by being a Premium Member (in addition to supporting with keeping the forum going), you will have around 40 or more features that will enhance your user experience. As a Standard Member, you will still be able to do everything you can do at the current UKMIX.

                                        I also wanted to show you what the posting interface looks like as it's much better:



                                        You have the option of writing the post with it formatted as you write it or keeping it basic like current UKMIX, where all the formatting options appear in their written BB Code.

                                        Exciting!

                                            Looking forward to being able to block certain members. Although it could make counting survivor votes tricky in some instances.

                                                I think it would be nice if there was some sort of indication (through color or symbol) that a user is a premium member. Just kind of serves as kind of an advertisement for premium. I've seen it on other sites and think it's a nice gesture to the people who support the site.

                                                  For premium economy accounts, will there be a limit as to how many people you can block?

                                                    Agreed, I plan on having either a ďVIP MemberĒ banner or a ďPremium MemberĒ banner somewhere above or below the username.
