The forum will be unavailable for 4 hours tomorrow as per the below times across the world.

Event Time Announcer - Cricket Web Forum Upgrade

This outage will be used to upgrade the forums to one of the latest versions of the vbulletin software which will offer many new features and improve the experience for everyone.

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.

And nested quotes.

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.

The forum upgrade has been completed successfully. :)

However, the search re-building is still on-going at this stage. It has done 1.8 million posts and has 1.3 million to go. To just get the forum open, we have disabled the search facility until this process is complete. I will update this thread once searching has been switched on.

Please note that until this process completes, you may also find the forum a little slow. This is expected due to the nature of what it is doing.

If you experience any problems, please report them in this thread.

Where can I find "New Posts"?

EDIT: Also, the report posts icon seems to have drifted away from the post and is languishing in mid air between posts.

New Posts is disabled until the search re-build is complete.

The search re-build will probably take another 2-3 hours.
