Another issue is that this site is horribly slow, and also buggy when posting/editing.
I have previous experience setting up forums, and also an IT background, so for me it would be quite easy to do. Biggest issue would be my current financial situation (broke) and my health. Once I get both of those things out of the way, I'd be happy to create and host a new forum for Hello Project and other JPOP fans.
I could try to reproduce the look and feel of this site as much as possible and improve it in other areas. I think the green theme is nice, and overall, I think IP Board is good as it has lots of great features like the Picboard etc. If we did create a new site, we'd likely need to ask the admin to provide a data-dump of all the Picboard images, not sure what else... I won't be able to "scrape" the Picboard data as that would take an extremely long time to do.
Are there any aspects to this forum that you'd like to see changed or improved? Perhaps it might be good to brain-storm some ideas.
