I imagine that real forum software like vB instead of some random hacked together thing would not have broken permalinks nor would it lack tools against spam commenting / comment throttling.

Using different software would mean losing all the current threads etc though, wouldn't it?

Larger, professional forum software usually comes with instructions on how to import posts and users and such.

In theory, it probably would, but you might be able to save everything with some effort. Either way, I'd say it's worth it. I don't think the admins will agree though.

Admins should at least introduce comment throttling so that mods/admins don't have to clean up after guys who automate posting 538959845 times on guide comments ~ (Plus other things.)

I'm pretty sure there's a way to preserve it.

I know there's a couple of situations where permalinks don't work, but for the most part they do.

An update should be going through soon to help deal with spam comments and add comment throttling. We got the message that we need this after the latest fiasco.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
