It looks nice, much better features than PHPBB obviously. One thing that bugs me is the little blue sqaure icons on the thread lists, they're too hard to quickly distinguish from each other. Also the "PostReply" button looks like it's left over from PHPBB. These may be things you're already working on changing, if so sorry.

Did some posts not make it over during the conversion?

It was transferred from a backup from March 9th. So that might not have made it over. :(

That will come eventually. In the meantime, if you are on blackberry browser, you could try turning off images and access the new site directly. It will be slower, but I have gotten it to work on mine (through BB browser, not carrier browser) in a pinch.

That's because avatars are now limited to 100x100 -- you need to resize your avatar smaller for it to upload properly.

I'll make a note to Tom to fix that avatar size limitation...

I might have missed this, but user profile preferences reset, so you'll have to resetup email notification, etc.

Not a hassle.

Did ya'll do a server upgrade too? It seems to really FLY now!

I would like to know if vBull has an RSS option. If you're concerned about ad revenue or something, I'd still be doing a full read on the site, so I'd still get an ad impression.

I just can't stress enough how much more I could get out of this site if I didn't have to reload the same page several times a day - just getting the updated threads from my browser (or 'Berry!) would be a fantastic thing.

Light grey foreground on white background. Just an opinion I guess, nobody else seems to be mentioning it.
