    Paging JD Miller

    I just snuck a peek at le new CyFan. It seems like an improvement, but I'm not sure if that's because it is new/different, or truly better. (I will not spend enough time there to find an answer to my question.)

    Is that the new Vbulletin format that you have in mind for HN?

    Yes and no.

    first, the content portion of CF will not be what ours looks like. Nor will we have as many ads.

    Second, the forum software they upgraded to is the forum software we will be upgrading to. But there is so much customization with that, it's not a 'that's what we are doing' type of comparison.

    Do roll around under the hood though, on your user page, etc. vBulletin 4.2 is so full of good stuff.

    Also, we have no choice but to upgrade..support for this version of vBulletin, which is at least 6 years old, is dying..which means at some point late this year, security issues go up.

    1. Content and ads, I didn't think you'd be anywhere close to the same, but thanks for confirming (relief!).
    2. I like how the core software looks, and I am excited to see what kind of customization you overlay.
    3. Can't get under the hood; banned.
    4. The sooner the better, pls.

    Le Stack and I are not in regular contact, unfortunately.
    I may stop by his...err, "office"...when I'm in Iowa City in October, though.
