Well, I'm guessing they're using custom settings for each forum instead of just inheriting values from a parent.
While I can copy from one to another, it doesn't seem to be able to inherit from a parent. Now that everything is set, it's not a big deal.
The software itself seems to be working pretty flawlessly, and the speed is darned spanky. This is really nice. Pretty amazing not to lose seven years worth of stuff. Like it. Ample nice features and functions, but simple, lean, legible/self-evident/whatever. Modern. Now that it's integrated, for what he's done for the MCF (well, I guess that would be Mactech) faithful, I hope it can prove to be an asset. I never checked the more technical forum - Hopefully that would get pretty vibrant and forward of the curve - That could be something of value.
We're glad to have found a reasonable way to make it work. And yes, we too think it will be great to get some new blood in, on new topics, and have some fun with it.
