    At some point over the next 48 hours, I will be upgrading the forum software. This could mean the forum is down for several hours, and it could also mean it won't look quite right for several hours after that while I update the skin.

    Are we moving onto vBulletin 4?
  3. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah. I own vBulletin 5 now as well but it's still pretty dire, so we'll be upgrading to the latest stable version of vBulletin 4 (which is 4.2.2 PL4 I think). The one thing I don't like about vB4 is the broken search function, so I may buy/install a separate one (reading up about Sphinx AWS).

    Bring back signatures while youre at it imo
  5. Mousey AJ Son

    Sigs suck, they're ugly. Part of what makes CricSim better than regular forums is the clean look it has.

    Welcome to the 21st Century, CricSim.
  8. Starris ER Starris

    Totally agree!
  9. Chewie JA Chewie

    Sigs are alright if there's a limit on how much stuff you can put there, but when they start to get a lot longer than the messages you're posting then it's just stupid.
  10. Rocks DN Boland

    Just manually make sigs every time you post.

    Give us a sample of what the site could look like when you are done.
  13. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Like CW but in CS colours.
  14. Furball G Furball

    No likey.
  15. Shri G Shriram

    PMs would stay yes?
  16. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah James disables those; not vBulletin itself.

    I'll also be working to get some sort of competent search function going as VB4's is awful.
  17. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    I presume this hasn't happened yet, but there's been some strange things going on in the last couple of days - with the last post in some threads not being there when you open it - then having to post to get it to appear.
  18. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah, some of the prep I did for that would have caused that. It'll be fixed when I rebuild the caches after the update.
  19. Starris ER Starris

    There's also a strange thing going on where until someone else posts the odd thread shows a new message. You can view it but it still shows as a new thread when you refresh.
  20. Cribbage RG Cribb

    That's exactly what Heef is talking about.
