It's about that time, kids. Coming soon, to a forum near you! SUPER DUPER UPGRADES!
The upgrade will be taking place sometime in the next week. We will be upgrading to vBulletin 4 Publishing Suite, which has many new features. Check them out:
vBulletin-The Most Powerful Forum Software Available
The upcoming upgrade will get rid of the current default skin and change the layout of the site. There's nothing we can do about that. The default skin won't work anymore, and we won't be able to make the site look like it is unless someone spends a lot of time building a custom skin. You can start looking for desirable free skins here, and anyone wanting to purchase and donate a not-free skin will be welcome to do so.
The forum will be down for a considerable amount of time for this upgrade. It took about 4 hours to do the upgrade itself on INTPc, and then about 10 hours to rebuild the search indexes -- it should take about as long here. Additionally, not all of the plugins and add-ons we currently use will be available for the forum immediately. This newest version was just added on Sept 14, and so support for all features is not currently available. Be patient, post about anything you miss in the Upgrade thread in Feedback, and we'll do our best to make the new forum do everything the old one did, plus tons more.
Stick with us and we'll come back

Thanks in advance for your patience! You guys really do make the forum- without you, there wouldn't be one.
