Yeah, it'd be far easier. But it's not going to happen - no admin wants to have 90% of LucasForums all sporting the same generic skin whilst the few that have planned ahead like us have pretty new themes.
Myself and various others are trying to get the ball rolling with the large-scale changeover to vB3, but there's little more I can do. It's definitely a huge task to convert a forum as large as this to vB3, and I don't just mean aesthetically.
I'm doing the best I can, here.
