    First, I'd like to apologise to everyone for not being more frequent on my own site! I've just been so busy between school and work that I haven't had much spare time. I'm going to try to put some more time into the site in the coming months.

    So.. The first thing I want to do is upgrade the vb software. vb3 is out and it looks awesome. It's easier to use and has even more nice features built in. The only problem I see, is porting over some of the hacks, most importantly, the store hack. Your bought features wouldn't be lost, but things would change slightly.

    Would anyone else like to see this upgrade happen?

    To view vb3 in action check out the vbulletin board itself: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/

    or go to any other popular vb site. (http://forums.offtopic.com/ , http://hardforums.com)

    It sounds like a plan to me John.... we could start a thread for upgrade "issues" and just try to take care of things one by one if folks are willing to be patient....

    Tell me what I can do to help :)

    It's more broke then you think .. heh

    vb2 is also server intensive, so we'd see a slight boost in page load times also.

    I agree with John.... it is kinda 'broke'... there're many features that we just can;t access ala the admin thing... enough that the problems of fixing vs. the problems of upgrading??? eh.... could be a wash ;) ;) ;)

    I'm thinking about altering the design a little too. I'm getting sick of this layout.

    yup it would be nice to have a new design. think we could set up a contest for the new design to get the other members involved? you know just get people to give design ideas...just a thought.
