    Oooh. Will the site still look the same, James? And what sort of enhancements can we expect to see?

    It'll look very similar. A lot of effort has gone into making the new vBulletin 4 skin look as close as possible to the current vBulletin 3 skin. I'm not sure who ended up doing the little cricket icons for the read/unread posts on the first page but they're great; same basic idea with a crisper, modern feel. It just looks freshened up a bit, which is all we needed, rather than a complete overhaul.

    The main new features you'll see will be a dedicated mobile skin, a more enhanced version of the Advanced Reply feature including the ability to post tables and YouTube videos, and a more detailed search function.

    Pasting images doesn't work, but anything else seems to just fine, i.e. tables, bullet points.

    Hrmm. Not a huge fan of nested quotes - unless there's a limit of how much nesting goes on, things can get ugly.

    With any new software, I think we'll find things like this.

    After a few weeks I'm sure we'll be making changes here and there to make it work a little better for the community as a whole

    I keep reading this thread title as "Cricket Web Forum Outrage - Tomorrow!"

    I bet this outrage involves Cribb in some way.
