vBulletin
 
Well, I think this is fairly obvious if you're reading this, but we have FINALLY gotten rid of PHPBB2. Thank Logan for his generosity in actually paying for this software, as it's not cheap and thank Cue for slaving over the server during the downtime getting this up and running.

While we're going to have a transition period where everything's going to be weird, please bear with us as this will eventually lead to a vastly improved forum for the long-term.

Yeah, you'd better like it, 6 hours of work this took, non-stop. :(

VBulletin is sooooo kinky. I love it.

iStepable 08-09-2009 11:51 PM

Wooah Vbulletin. Its pretty well done.

Eblo 08-09-2009 11:52 PM

Hey, the MB is back up!

vBulletin will be hard to get used to for me, though.

Chimera 08-09-2009 11:53 PM

Looks nicer than the old PHPBB2 site. Wish I could have an alt. color tho :<

Daywalker 08-09-2009 11:55 PM

Thanks guys, vBulletin was a great choice! Especially with its capabilities.

supersonic45 08-09-2009 11:58 PM

Hard for me to get used to, but **** it, it works.

Jacy 08-09-2009 11:58 PM

This seems like quite an improvement. The only thing I am sad about is that usertitles are gone. I also just noticed that Smilies are on......... No I am not gonna do one so stop looking.

I am slightly confused at how to do things like profile editing and some of the other things that were here before.

Sondaniel22 08-09-2009 11:59 PM

It's... not bad actually.
Matter of fact, I'm starting to like it. Although It will feel different then before, but I can work with this. Nice job Cue.

BlazingPhoenix 08-10-2009 12:00 AM

Doomworld uses this, so I'm okay with it. :P

Usertitles are on, what are you talking about?

Chabo 08-10-2009 12:05 AM

The ocean skin makes this look alot better although it should be the default skin instead of the vBulletin. GJ

Ice 08-10-2009 12:06 AM

Specifically, what can we do with vBulletin that we couldn't do with the old thing?

Mikel 08-10-2009 12:06 AM

I'm fine with the move to vBulletin, as we were stuck with PHPBB2 for the last six years, and this seems to be an acceptable choice.

Nice work, Admins.

It's not crappy, for one thing.

Kaysakado 08-10-2009 12:08 AM

I'm fine with this except for the problem if you go directly back to the index or use the back button while reading a topic, that topic shows up as unread.

Which really sucks balls. :<

Ghost_Zero 08-10-2009 12:08 AM

I love it. <3

I'm glad we switched to it.

They may be on, but I can't see them.

We have a much, much improved warnings/infractions system that is actually built-in, runs at the post level and allows for undoing of warnings/infractions. Basically, the warning system is streamlined, more reliable, and fairer to users. It's far superior to the hacked mess that was on our old board.

Quick Reply is available in vBulletin, which is very, very useful.

The members list is now way easier to browse through, since you can simply filter by letter.

Improved administrative features allow us to better protect the board without ugly hacks.

In short, what isn't to like about vBulletin compared to phpBB2? Heck, there are even nice touches like the full WYSIWYG editor. It's about time we got off that decrepit piece of junk and moved to real forum software.
