Default Attention: Forum upgrade and aftermath

The BC forums will go offline later today for about 2 hours. We are going to migrate from XMB to VBulletin. As BC grows exponentially, we do need to make this move to a more stable and robust forum software. We hope this move will eliminate the recent server outages and slow downs.

We were planning to make this move after we have had the opportunity of customizing the look and feel to reflect what you are all used to. However, we now feel this migration must be accelerated. Once the BC forum is back up using VBulletin, you will notice that the look and feel will be the default VBulletin one until we have had time to transform it into the BC look and feel.

Do note that once the migration is complete, you can log in with your usual user name and password.

Please bear with us and keep your hard hats on.

We WILL be back up before the game.

I will try to keep the old forum up, with read only mood, that way, all users will be able to copy everything they need to the new forum.

Please bear with us during the this initial transition period. There might be ups and down here and there. Gradually everything will be smoothed out.

Sorry to be a whiner, but my experience so far telling me that the accessibility of the forum has actually gone worse after the switch.

My experience is opposite, find the accessibility of the forum is faster but missing previous layout!

Zunaid bhai;

I liked the light green theme. How about a green background with the red cricket ball border. Thanks for bringing this up quickly.

Admin,
The forum upgrade was excellent. Keep up the good work.

Concern: The banner looks out of place. Can we change the forum's blue feeling to a green feeling? That way the banner would match (closely) to the toolbars, reply bars, etc.? What do you think? You'll can test it between the two tests and decide or may be make a poll for feedback.
