Hi, all. The time has come to begin talking about Armchair Arcade version 3.0, and we're thinking now about closing down this Drupal site and re-booting with a Wordpress site. The reasons are mainly technical; none of us has the time or expertise to deal with updating a complex site, and Drupal has been giving us issues with the host. We're also concerned because the current version of Drupal is 7.x, but we're still on 6.x. We could update to 7, but we'd lose a lot of image functionality in the process (we use a mod here called img_assist to help us upload and format images for posts, and it's not compatible with 7). On top of that, the built-in image features lack the functionality of our current setup, so it'd be a downgrade in some key aspects.
There's some debate about whether a forum would be desirable, perhaps a phpbb forum that would share a common login/password with the Wordpress site (there are mods to handle this). You probably wouldn't be able to search across both (perhaps there are also mods for that), but the idea is to keep things simple this go-round without a lot of monkeying around with mods and scripts. Also, frankly, the participation is so low in this forum that I think it'd be more trouble than it's worth to bother with it in the next incarnation of AA.
In any case, we'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter. Keep in mind our technical limitations; we aren't web devs and not really comfortable with doing anything but basic setups and updates.
