From Joe Dirt:
“It’s not about what you want, it’s about the consumer.”
It’s really about your audience. I just helped rebuild a site and we made our forum from scratch. Custom look and functions. Not 1 complaint about them yet even though it doesn’t look anything like phpbb. It’s because the target audience of the site doesn’t care what the forums look like, a forum is a forum to them.
However, if your audience is different, and they Do care what look your forum has, then it’s a judgment call on your end. Go back to how things were or force them to adjust.
Maybe you should post a list of reasons why you switched and/or what new featured the vanilla forums have over phpbb if you haven’t yet already.
