Most of you will notice that there some changes to the forum.

We've installed vBulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com), a commercial software package, to replace the old foroum software. The conversion from one to the other went smooth, but as in most cases, there might be some bugs and glitches arising. We will take care of these promptly if they appear.

It became more and more evident that the old software we were using had some serious bugs in terms of secutiry, was not really stable, and seemed to be a target for all the spammers out there.

I really hope everyone like the new system, no features have been removed. On the contrary, many new slick features have been added, and I hope this makes the interaction in our community even better :)

If you find any issues with this new forum software, please let me know in this thread :)

UPDATE - Arising issues:
-Old Avatars not imported ->Please upload a new avatar in your Control Panel (User CP)
-User Rank Images - fixed
-Stacking of info in left post column (avataor, user ranks etc)
-Icons for 'new posts' etc, in thread list view
-Complete import of smilies that are missing - fixed
