Post vBulletin 3

As you can see I've installed vBulletin 3. Most of it has been configured, but there are still a few things to do (like the quotes and styles).

There are some changes compared to the previous settings:
- avatars have been reindexed, so users of the default avatars have to reselect them
- at 10 posts you can select any avatar, including a custom one

There are a few things that are going to change:
- additional Administrator
- maybe an additional Moderator
...

There's one thing I really don't like. Why is the main table don't take 100% of the page's width?

Could you fix that El?

He's still working on the styles, my guess it that the old styles with 100% width will also be included.

I prefer this fixed width anyhow, it's nicer to read text like this, especially at high resolutions with a fullscreen browser where the lines would be really wide.

Another thing: in Adventure Gamers, when you click "back" on your browser, going back to "new posts search", the search results refreshes (you don't have to press "reload" ).

I agree, this width is better, especially since most internet people out there still uses 800x600.

El: Make Darkflame the administrator and Chaosfish the moderator! That would be the only right thing to do! Wacko could be administrator too, but he has indicated that he would resign from the moderating, and its better to get newer blood like Darkflame (who basically along with Chaosfish has taken over from wacko and Atresica as force of the MBN). Actually, I am willing to help with modding now, Ive been tired of this forum for more than a year now, but the introduction of the new forum software is really nice, the problem is that I doubt anyone would want me as moderator lol.

Why not? If we're gonna get a new one, there's really not another choice, actually. You are pretty balanced and pretty serious, so it would probably work.

Hmm, there are an amount of glitches though. For example, wacko's first post is blank for me besides a smily unless I scroll down and up again (same with a post of morshem in axx thread)

You click the quickreply button, the one with the arrow, and then tick the Quote message in reply box under the message textbox.

Oh and I swear this is the last time I'll post a question
*fingers crossed*

Why do I get
"Atresica, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

when I try to access profile picture in the CP?

I found a little cool stuff:
Archive mode, shows the 250 last threads from each forum in a list

You can see all your attachments here

Theres somethign called Profile Picture that I cant access

And vb3 has support for paid subscriptions.
There is something called Group memberships that I dont know what it is.

Also you can search the forum directly from the menu, click search and a box pops down.

Also you can switch to vbulletin 2 if you want to, its at the absolute bottom of the page.

Nice

Nice 2: The message must be at least 10 characters long, which means that the smilie posts or "hehe" posts are gone! Which means that spam is more restricted! Which means that we can have the post count for all forums?
