Nasher.

This was a mistake pure and simple at this end. There are several folks involved in the update, programmers, graphics gurus, etc. Signals got crossed and I apologize. There should have been some notice. There was no lack of respect intended - just a mix up at this end. We'll try to do better.

Does this "upgrade" include updating this forums software to the newer vBulletin software?

If so, it might be worth/fair to warn users how buggy and gremlin riddled the newer vBulletin versions are!

While there will be a vB update, it will not be to the latest version. I agree it's buggy but there have been many updates since the version currently running and I think you've find it an improvement. Most of the posting interface will be the same, but we will have increased security and a few more features available for members.

Hmmm, it might be worth warning the newer versions of vBulletin how gremlin and troll riddled RIBnet is. The shock could do for it....

Works well for me now anyway, thanks to those that put in the work behind the scenes, as a moderator on another forum I know that it is sometimes like the proverbial swan, everything looks serene on the surface but there's a lot thrashing around underneath to make it go forwards
