If anyone has a competing forum software they like, I can forward to David for his consideration.

I agree that how the forum is running today--Is not acceptable. It is barely limping along right now regarding, what should be, basic functionality. The other stuff (albums, mobile/small format screen display, moderator functions, linking/pictures, etc.) have even more issues.

I like http://www.simplemachines.org/SMF. I have been an admin on a forum that has used SMF for 9 years now.
SMF is free software. Therefore there is no paid for support, but they have a great forum for obtaining help. We have had very few issues with it, even when we changed from one version to a later version. It does require some learning by the admins or mods. I would be willing to "talk shop" with anyone who wants to. There are dozens if not hundreds of addons to customize the software. I do prefer to use very few mods though as updates to the base software do not always get along with all the mods.
EDIT: SMF is the software Midnite runs. The forum I help run is at http://countryplans.com/smf/index.php

The system upgrade of a website should maintain all the elements and functionality of its predecessor and enhance the websites user function. This supposed upgrade has done neither.
Every time the site loads on my computer, I feel like its kiddy time with the red and yellow graphics.
I belong to other forums that have in the past become so frustrated with the vBulletin® format that they have abandoned it all together for a different software package.
At this point it feels like the site has lost the support of Mark, just hope they get is fixed soon..
