Brett, if you ask those of us who have been here for a long time, how can WebmasterWorld be modernised, many of us will say that the format is perfect and no change is required.
But I guess that by asking us oldies whether we want change, you are asking the turkey whether he is looking forward to Christmas?
Have you considered continuing WebmasterWorld exactly the way it is, and maybe working on WebmasterWorld-v2.0 in parallel...?
Start with a clean slate, create a new site with a new focus, a new emphasis, suited for the modern times? Make it interactive, put in the AJAX that every wants, make a business plan from the outset.
Those who want to stay in the golden olden forum will do so, those who want the modern will go with the new one.
You can't please everyone with the current offering. So why not simply create a new one to serve the new gap in the market?
