    Hey all,

    Tomorrow (11 December) we will be upgrading the forums.

    They will be offline from 12am (AEDT) and will remain offline for about 3 hours, with all going well.

    Just thought we would let you know.

    Cheers.

    Its just an upgrade of the vB Forum version, and will allow some new features (ie. able to comment on peoples profiles etc). The plan is to do a new-look for the forum, but that wont be done now.. Sometime before next season kicks off, i guess.

    As stated by KN7 its just a upgrade of the forum version. Fixing security issues etc. Also stated by KN7 the major change is to User Profiles (Commenting on peoples profile, customizing your profile) and a whole lot of other little things.

    After a bit of a hickup the forum has now been updated to the latest stable version of VBulletin (vBulletin Version 3.7.4).

    If any errors occur whilst you are browsing the forums please let me or one of the Admins know ASAP.

    Most of the new features are to do with your Profile.


    • You can now style your Profile Page the way you want it HERE
    • Also we now have "Visitor Messages" which are like PM's only the open public can view them. They can be posted on a Users Profile Page.
    • You can now make up a "Friends List".
    • You can now also upload images that you like into a Album via your Profile Page.
    So enjoy the new features and have a bit of a play. I am going for some shut eye.

    Cheers.
