MyBB 1.8 is great. It will seem a little odd at first when it comes to the file hierarchy, but when you fool around with it for a bit, you will get the hang of it.
It generally feels a lot better. i don't feel a clutter of everything for some reason like I did with 1.6 And for another reason or two, the plugins and themes that are compatible for 1.8 that are not for 1.6, just seem so much more high quality.
I actually got confused for a second when I was helping Inferno last night with his forum, because I am so used to 1.8 now.
Especially loving the separate plugin configurations. I find the soft delete function a bit silly, but all I have to do is avoid that option.

With a little time and patience, you can solve this yourself. Most of the errors have already been asked about and a solution was produced.

1.6 theme or 1.8 theme -- there is still no theme that suites our needs. We modify them to our content anyway.
