    It looks like vBulletin will be releasing a new version of vBulletin soon (4.1), which should solve many of the problems with the 4.0 release (I hope!). If it looks like a good version, I'll update this site when it becomes stable and then get a new design coded :).

    At the moment we are using vBulletin 3.8, which works very well, but it would be nice to give the new version a test! :D

    It's mainly a change in the look and style of the forum (using CSS much more), but the 4.1 version should bring some performance tweaks, better WYSIWYG editor, improved search function - many general improvements :).

    I'm really happy with 3.8 still and have held off the 4.0 series as it has been full of bugs for very little improvement - hopefully 4.1 will change much of that!

    We could really use this one.

    It's sad when you have better luck finding the thread you want on a site using Bing or Google instead of the sites search feature.

    Yep, the vBulletin search has never been ideal - so if the new search still doesn't cut it, then I'll integrate Google on here :).

    Yep, as soon as the look of Windows 8 is known, I'll be getting a new skin make :D.
