Today we upgraded the forum software to what is now the most current version of vbulletin.
We've been meaning to upgrade for a while, but the upgrade was pushed off because of the large amount of work that it entails. Although we use a standard bulletin board package, we've built in many custom features, and getting everything back to order is a real task.
But last night we received notification that there was a serious security flaw in earlier versions of the software, which included ours. That's why we upgraded today.
Moving to this new software release will be somewhat of a process, so stay tuned for little tweaks as we make progress. This means that some features which are enabled at this moment may not be available later, as we restore the forum to its former settings.
ps Some time transpired between the import of the posts database and the time we actually went live with this site, so some posts were lost (Maybe 2 hours' worth). Sorry. Please repost if this affected you.
