    Today I will be performing a vBulletin update. This should occur within the next hour or two and last about thirty minutes. I will update the maintenance page should it take longer. DLP IRC will be open, if you wish to sit in the IRC Chat I will be giving updates there as well.

    The upgrade was completed successfully after several hours of pre-upgrade work. If you find any errors or omissions, please let me know.

    Some of the most notable new features are:
    -Tagging (inc. a tag cloud)
    -New user profile system with friending...which may or may not stick around for long.
    -Thread prefixing
    -Awesome new moderation features and global notifications
    -Post edit histories, which may allow us to extend edit times beyond 1 day.

    And a lot more. See vBulletin 3.8.x features and vBulletin 3.7.x features

    Agree with Xiphy, it is purdy. Tags look like they could be a godsend.

    Quick question for pictures to social groups...

    Is there a way to link pictures from an outside site, or do we have to upload the pictures to an album in our profile?

    I do like the prospect of an extended edit period. Twenty-four hours very frequently seems to be too short.
