Uh... wow, that default actually is horrible, Jon. I second Seratin's note above, most of us were probably joshing about the matter. I was fine with the previous DLP Green skin in the preview.

Just not the radioactive vomit color that was the accent shade.

I didn't actually look at anything, but I have faith things will work out in the end. If they don't, well, this is goodbye. It's appropriate that it should be my 100th post.

Happy to see the move to Xenforo. Most other forums I'm on use it, and they are generally very good for quality of life.

That is intentional behavior to prevent spamming you with notifications. That said, it can be changed.

I actually really like vBulletin and this forum as is. I understand all the reasons for moving, and I'm sure it'll be better in the end, I just worry it won't feel like home.

I'm generally grumpy when it comes to any changes, but as long as the familiar color scheme and functionality are preserved, I support the software move, for what my vote is worth.

It is a concern, but at some point I have to make decisions based on software health too. It's not the new and the flashy (though, always nice), but the fact that our PHP version is pinned to an old version, that security updates will never be released. I simply don't have time to find and fix vB security bugs. It's a huge, sprawling codebase.

Glad to see the move to Xenforo. A lot of other boards (AlternateHistory, SufficientVelocity, SpaceBattles) already did it, I think it's a good decision for DLP to do it as well.

Are you trying to convince me it's a bad idea?

In progress. I'd posted a more aggressive timeline for rollout than I really ended having time for during my time off. It has been moving ahead slowly but I'd expect it to accelerate here soon.

At this point I'll say, "when it's done."

I've made a lot of progress importing things over, but I have a few modifications I need to make before the transition will be seamless (probably).

Beyond that, work needs to be done on the initial theme. There's no such thing as importing our existing themes, so the ones we want to keep will have to be recreated.

I'll post again when there's some more interesting work done.

Yay! My phone and iPad are starting to shit the bed with vBulletin, so this is nice to see. Then again it could be that they're just shitty Apple products.
