    Is this something you guys would be interested in upgrading to? Be aware it would be a major upgrade requiring new licensing fees and the forum will be different.

    Please take time to test it out over at the vBulletin site. Let me know your thoughts.

    If you want to be silly and act like a turd do it another one of my threads. This thread will be conducted like adults or I will ignore you and ban you from all my threads.

    I know you hate me dawg and think I'm a gaping asshole but in this instance I think it is wise to stay current. Upgrade.

    As long as it won't cost me $ 12.00 a month in Supporter Status, I'm all for it.

    Is there anything in vBull5 we really need? I'm fine with the current version.

    They released a patch which would bring us up to 4.2.1 or something like that. That patch would be the way to go. I'm thinking if we were going to do such a major upgrade we would go with XenForo.

    However, i do want to hear what members say.

    I just don't know. If there was, I think we would have heard about it by now.

    Yeah, probably better to go with the patch and remain stable.
