  1. Yes we can do that as groups mostly work the same way as vBulletin (minus display group not being a thing). It's only supporter ranks that are wonky, due to them always needing to be secondary.
  2. Extreme Potatoes' redemption arc is finally complete. I'm proud of you @eXtr3m3 Congrats to everyone else as well!
  3. Do you have a different forum account? Because your current forum account isn't in the VIP group. You do have an old VIP subscription, but it expired in February.
  4. The list on that page is taken from the vB Donate list here, which is entered manually. I just haven't had time to enter the donations for this month yet which is why it's empty.
  5. It's back up and working again.
  6. This is something I think we'd be more inclined to work into the new forums sometime in the future. It'd be fairly hard and time consuming to implement this in vBulletin, and ultimately we don't want to spend any more time developing things in VB when we're going to move away from it shortly anyway. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  7. This is certainly one of the end goals with the new forum/site. How exactly it'll all end up looking isn't finalised yet, but we do generally want to move away from being so singularly forum focused.

    Hype time, only five weeks to go.
  10. ^ Nano if you really do have any knowledge in HTML and web dev then you should know exactly why it's not enabled.
  11. Raffle is extended over the weekend. It will end on Monday March 4th at exactly midnight EST. Prizes will be drawn when Prez gets back.
  12. Map is fixed and back on the original version, no map edits needed. And any illegitimate times were also removed.
  13. @TheVirus You know personally I agree with every word you said. I really don't understand the urge some people have to use certain words or phrases, and I've always been happy with our strict rules against racism. But even with all that being the case, us continuing to dig our heels in, ignoring the large majority of people that want to see a change and letting some of the tension and animosity here build up even more is not a good thing for the community either. That's why I didn't vote against us giving this a trial run, and I'm sure the other members of the Board feel the same. We've always maintained that few things in this place are completely set in stone, and we'll always reevaluate things as circumstances change. If after the trial period is over and it's obvious that it's making a negative impact then the rules can go back to where they were before, and you're free and would be justified to say 'I told you so'. But maybe the change won't end up being big deal, or maybe somewhere in between, then any additional issues that might come up with it can be addressed and we can reach a happy medium. Listening to what the community wants is very important, and sometimes that involves taking a risk trying out something like this. That doesn't mean we'll do things just because people want it despite it being bad for the community or that we're only listening to the majority. No one wants to see this place become an unwelcoming toxic environment and we always try our best to stop that from happening. However we can't just brush off what a huge section of the community wants just because we disagree with it, and any claims we can make about the exact outcome here are speculation until we actually test it out. So I'd just ask that if any of you feel disappointed with this change to wait and see what happens with this first and then judge it, and we will of course listen to what you have to say.
