I'm not entirely sure if the phpBB -> FUD Forum converter is developed "in-house" as it were, but there is a glaring flaw in it that I wanted to let you know about.

The forum-specific permissions called "Edit", "Delete" in phpBB refer to users being able to Edit or Delete their own posts. In FUD forum, they refer to everyone in the "Registered Users" global group being able to edit anyone else's posts. This caused quite a nightmare as users ran rampant making interesting edits to other people's posts last night.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know about that little circumstance in case you wanted to edit the conversion script. I am VERY impressed with FUD forum so far and I will be trying my hand at creating my own template for my site tonight. Smile

Thanks for the tip, the converter was adjusted to correspond with this information.
