  • VBulletin Version 3?

    A couple of other forums I frequent have updated their vBulletin boards to version 3, and I must say I like the change. Is there any hope that in the future Poly will be going that route?
    I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

        To put it differently, what is new?

        IIRC Markos said he would make the change once it had proven itself. (This was some time ago though)
        Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing?

          As far as I know markos sees no need to update, and also all the forum hacks in place makes it very hard to perform an upgrade to VB3. Eventually it will come, but probably not as long as markos isn't very active.

            The forum hacks are what are keeping us from upgrading.
            It will be a difficult task getting all the hacks installed in the new version of VB3, if only because there are so many of them.

              Some hacks wouldn't be compatible with this new version either.
              As long security isn't compromised, there's no need to upgrade.

                Although new features need to be weighed against features lost.

                  Is there any list available to compare from?

                    http://www.vbulletin.com/features/index.html has a list of features available in VB3. Obviously, there is no list as such for Apolyton's hacks.

                          Personally, I don't see a problem with the way things work now. Upgrading for just upgradings sake doesn't necessarily make sense. The old adage of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" would seem to apply.

                            I don't have time looking for feature lists. However, I did some remembering, trying to figure out what hacks are installed on Poly

                            • some features of which I may not speak


                            Some of these things are featured in VB 3, but might need conversions from the current system to work correctly.

                            Conclustion: We will not see VB3 here until Markos has more time.
