    Our forum has been converted from vbullletin to xenforo due to an unpatched security hole in vbulletin:

    vBulletin.com Hacked, Customer Data Stolen

    Password hack of vBulletin.com fuels fears of in-the-wild 0-day attacks

    That vbulletin exploit is now being offered for sale by a well known hacker group. Vbulletin's consistently terrible customer support has not yet provided a security patch or any real info to their customers about what happened or how we can protect our sites. Every forum run on their platform may now be vulnerable.

    A member of the staff from xenforo forum was hired to perform the actual database conversion and he also installed a much better search engine for the new forum.

    I didn't explaining this on the public side until after the forum had been converted because I didn't want to alert wanna be hackers to the potential security hole.

    I apologize in advance for the inconvenience but it seemed better than leaving the site vulnerable to hackers.

    I'm still working on some parts of the conversion, hoping to get it wrapped up in the next couple of hours.

    The vbulletin Rep scores were imported into likes scores.

    I've also got a new likes system to install, just give me a minute.
