    hello badminton fanatics,

    in the next week or two, i am installing a completely different forum software. thanks to all of you, the growth of this forum has overly exceeded what the current software is capable of. the new software will be much more sophisticated and much better in terms of functionality and management.

    i hope this change will be for the good of the forum. and i hope everyone bears with me during this transition period.

    there will be a lot of change. there are two fundamental differences between the old and new software. the new software will be registration based. you cannot post without being registered. the new software also does not have thread, in other words, it is a flat world. this is less ideal in my opinion, but i hope we will get used to it.

    i will have a preview in a day or two. and then i will start letting people registering.

    please post any questions here.

    Good and bad about this for certain people who like to post nice thing with their original ID and post bad things using a different id. Or, people who used others' id to post.

    I prefer the thread, but anyway, it doesn't bother me much.

    Looking forward to see the improvement. :)

    not in the near future. i need to focus on one thing at a time, and right now, there are too many things to be fixed. however, if someone organizes a chat on another server, you are welcome to post the pointer here.

    Kwun,
    The new software is great. That software is being used by a number of boards and I believed that you can designated folks to be moderators too so that they can help out.

    Great work!
