The forums have been upgraded and this is gonna take awhile to get everything functioning properly, all of the previous addons will need to be fixed and/or updated.

Feel free to report bugs.

Have made some progress but there's a shitload to do...:roll:

Loved the bug comment bob but i have found a few actual bugs that need to be squashed, one is a database error message so if you receive a Duplicate entry error screen just hit back in your browser, it should be ok and hopefully will eventually be fixed.

Here is some information about some of the changes that have been made:

I added this new Halloween stuff but you can change back to the default at any time by using the drop down box that appears at the very bottom left of every forum page.

A note about the forum home page, there are 3 blocks of information at the top called ChatBox, ibProArcade Stats (will probably just be deleted in the future) and ibProArcade Champ Scoreboard, they ALL can be closed by clicking on the image (down arrow) that appears on the right hand side of the block, it currently looks like this:

Some things that have been upgraded:
PNVB
VBulletin to latest
Post Thanks
ibProArcade
Mood Manager
Flags
VB Credits
Favorite Smilies
ibP blocks

Lots of stuff left to do, currently concentrating on upgrades to existing mods but there have been many questions about the credits, in the old forums users could purchase stuff like images with these, there has always been no monetary value to these Credits and that will continue. Currently they can be used in the Arcade, Casino, Name That Tune and/or donated to other folks. A brand new program was released to beta test that will allow Users to buy (no cash, just credits) images and other things for themselves or for others, hope to get it installed soon!

Seems to me the forum is a lot more snappy lately, is this because of the upgrade or is my internet provider responsible?

Sounds Cool!

Is the frontpage 'active-threads-list' we talked about in planning too?
I hope so Phoenixx, it was updated but still is not ignoring multiple replies in active threads...
The site is looking really good.

Speed was increased in the forums after some of the upgrades.

I'm trying to keep a record of the updates, so here's a few more:
Arcade stats in profile
Radio and TV in profile
Navbar Dev
ChatBox
Name that Tune
Radio and TV (program, still need to weed out stations that are not functioning)
Any Media deleted, replaced with AME..(Auto Media Embedding)
ibProArcade Stats above forums deleted
stupidly deleted ibProArcade stats on forum bottom in error...

Database errors Fixed

Some of you have been receiving database error messages since the site upgrade started as mentioned earlier in this thread,
database error message so if you receive a Duplicate entry error screen just hit back in your browser, it should be ok and hopefully will eventually be fixed.
these problems have been fixed with the help from axew3.
