A little more than 2 years ago we started looking into a software change. This all became a reality on 9/20/20, the day we went live with the xenForo software. vBulletin's software was simply outdated and stale so we made the switch to xF.

I couldn't imagine going back to vB after experiencing xF and all the updated features it has to offer. It's so nice to have software that looks and works great on a mobile device.

Again, thanks to our private donators (you know who you are) who helped make this all possible.

I got an insider look at just how much effort you guys put into something like a software change, you and Vague where busy every day for quite some time getting bugs ironed out before the move, then even more after the move. You guys deserve a huge pat on the back for all you did, and continue to do.

I'm still blown away by that change-over. I have never seen an internet forum do a smooth change-over like that. Besides struggling for many days or even weeks, many lose the db! But not these guys. Pros. They were pros. No idea if they have professional I.T. experience, but they did better than some that do. And that's saying something, given the volunteer & donation nature of internet forums like this.

I just posted to that affect.

Yeah, most of us don't know of or appreciate the pre-change-over prep work. And kudos for all the user feedback they elicited before & after, to say nothing of the transparency and communication during the entire process - pre/during/post.

It was a yeoman's job, well executed.

12 years!

I came here to have little fun, maybe debate a bit, and you guys have kept this place running 12 years. Hell, it was running before I got here so y'all have even more than that.
