    Forums have been upgraded to vBulletin 5

    The forums have been upgraded to the latest version of vBulletin. Please report any issues related to the upgrade in this thread. Thanks!

    Known issues:

    * Avatars aren't working. They aren't lost, but I'm not sure why they aren't being used.
    * Foums might be slow. This is due to me rebuilding the search index,

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

        Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

          The whole forum is very slow for me right now.

          They aren't lost, but I'm not sure why they aren't being used.
          Typically that sort of thing can be many things:
          1. Server conf file got changed so the webserver doesn't see the directory anymore (e.g. server homedirectory changed or something like that)
          2. Ownership or permissions of the directory got changed so the webserver refuses to serve anything in it
          3. Custom emotes no longer loaded into the forum app
          4. Difference of interpretation of some setting or permission between old version and new version of whatever you upgraded (pray that it's not caused by this...)

              - comment automerge doesn't work because of 15 seconds per post "postfloodcheck" rule ( Not sure if you want to keep that feature, but i would like see a bit lower time restricition between post - more like 5/6 seconds insted of 15).
              - emoticons are still vanished if being used directly before or after an Quote wrapper. (Was already broken with the old version)
              - video tag makes a very tiny video window.
              - image autoresize seems kinda to work, large images get resized to the comments box width.

                - feature request:

                It would be great to have an "Subscription" button on the top next to the "Notifications" one. It should point to the Message Center -> Subscriptions -> Posts . Like the old Usercp page on the old forums.

                - I also get sometimes very long load times or 502 errors when loading the Message Center. The same with user settings. However forum itself loads just fine ?

                  This. : - )

                  Bug reports:
                  - it seems the antispam- and antibot-protection doesn't work anymore, I've seen multiple spam posts (who here is interested in buying a japanese car in Pakistan?)
                  - Smileys don't work (at least in Firefox 57.0) - Neither : ) (without space) nor the button for the "Smile" smiley produces a smiley in the post. Even : - ) (without spaces) produces just a blank space.

                  Feature requests:
                  - Please bring back the 24-hour time format - Most of the world is used to the 24-hour time format ; - )

                    1) I'm completely lost with the classic vbulletin theme.
                    2) my subscriptions takes forfuckingever to load.
                    3) GO TO POST link in latest activity goes to OP instead of first unread post (works in my subscriptions)
                    4) Switching between latest forums / latest activity / my subscriptions is done in-line instead of via new page, so you can't use back/forward buttons. I hate it.

                        I can see there is going to be a lot to get used to and of course there are going to be some bugs to iron out but hopefully that won't take too long and more importantly that the new style doesn't put people off.

                            Noticed I could see signatures when not logged in, but as soon as I login they are gone.

                            Also can't login on Tapatalk. Get a network error message.

                            I'm not familiar with VBulletin, but I know the pain that comes from upgrading phpBB. So I wish you luck with the upgrades Viper!

                                Not a bug, but there's no current way to turn off ALL notifications of replies, as much as anyone else would want it, i think a lot of people would rather have it off than come to 1000 notifications eventually. Also another vote for a dark theme and a "new posts" or ispy button would be awesome

                                        ^ This 1,000,000%. It is making my eyes hurt looking at this horrendous theme. Plus it just doesn't feel better in any way over the previous version. I hope there was a specific security reason for the update because this feels inferior. I hate technology and software constantly changing things just to change them. There was nothing wrong with the previous forum UI, vBulletin should of left it be.
