Following some troublesome PM exchange with the yuku staff over the recent months, and the new direction in which yuku is headed, I'm beginning to consider taking us off of the yuku platform. I'm looking at several other options right now, among them self hosting.

However, what makes a board is not the host or the owner, but the members. Unless I knew the members of Descension were willing to follow it to another host, I wouldn't go with it.

What do you guys think?

As long as it's not proboards-type, I'd go.

PB/ZB/IF/etc are out of the question, as they do not permit mature content according to their TOS.

I'll always love IF but I see your point.

vB?

Looking into it. The question of which system exactly is currently not what I'm after though; if I know all (or almost all) of my members will follow, I'll be able to start looking deeper into what's available. If it's not self hosting though, it'll have to go hand in hand with the new host's TOS.

Sure, I dont like the idea of having to remake my account but it shouldn't be too bothersome. I'd go if all the current data/threads/posts carried over.

They will. We're not starting from scratch

In answer to the question posed in the thread title, yes.

Doesn't get any simpler then that.

No, fuck you, I'm going to TGC.

Oh wait.

I've been banned there for 7 years.

Nevermind.

(Of Course I'd follow)

I don't really have any vested interest in Yuku and I'm new enough that any change wouldn't be particularly dramatic on my end, so I'm down for whatever works best for Team Descension

It doesn't matter to me what site we are on as long as it just works . So if we move then I would still play.

And as I told Nessa, I offer my server hosting up for offer for free

  • I'm pretty much a derp
*shrugs* I could care less where we are. Also takes care of the problem I have with character profile overload.

I would definitely come. I've been slowly moving from Yuku anyway. I think everyone here that knows me personally knows that.  This was my last board anyway.  I was gonna suggest Jcink.com... but it looks like it's IPB powered or IF powered.  But they've got a quick switch system so you can click on it and arrow down and switch names.
