Post Please move from phpBB to Discourse
The usability of phpBB is, at best, terrible. At worst, phpBB is completely unusable. It's ugly and doesn't work very well.

Discourse is a new piece of forum software that's designed for the 21st century. The project was started by Jeff Atwood of Stack Overflow fame, is actively maintained and aggressively improved, and has been successfully used in production by numerous communities.

The Discourse people will host Discourse for you at a small fee, or you can host it yourself free of charge.

Please consider moving to Discourse as the RobotC Forums platform.

I should also mention that Discourse is able to import data from phpBB out-of-the-box.
