We have updated today to the latest version of the forum software.
As there are bound to be differences in the different styles you are stuck with the default one for now, please be patient while our resident style guru fixes the issues related to all the styles.

- There's now a lightbox feature built into vBulletin for attached images. (See example by clicking on the attachment). Do we keep that or use the custom one we had before? The black background is nice, but usability was better with the other one (click to close, cursors to switch to other pics, draggable).

- For those of you who are interested in which new features are available, check out the vBulletin 3.7.0 release announcement.

- Whoot! Multiquote is working again!

This just looks (in its default form) like *any* nindescript bulletin board.

I've been using at least one from time to time that looks *exactly* like the "default form".

Give Arhu a little time, folks, and all will be well again.

@Arhu- I think I liked the old system better, but the lightbox doesn't bother me.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Guys I scared when I noticed the change. First I thought I was directed to an other site. Then my euro fell
It is strange the change but i will get used to it.
Although I have to admit that I liked the darker colours more

The change is only temporary. What you are seeing is the default vBulletin template. As soon as I've reimplemented the RPGWatch customizations, everything will be back to normal. I think that should happen.. mm.. later tonight or tomorrow.

That will be good—this brightness is just so…gleaming and clean. Thanks for your hard work, Arhu.

Done. They changed too much on the User CP and user profile page, meaning that those two will take longer to retouch.. they look really bad now, but at least it's usable.
I found a nice file diff tool, which greatly helped speed things up.

Best feature IMO: Multiquote (quote+) is fixed!

Nothing like getting jolted back to the default template to appreciate Arhu's awesome work!

Why yes, of course. There were too many changes made to vBulletin 3.7.0. Since a lot of the layout is customized to RPGWatch, I prefered to turn off the Watch templates temporarily and re-integrate the customizations into the new vBulletin version. What you saw for 2 days was the default vBulletin template.

By the way, Santa's long gone, gabor.

Thanks everyone for the praise, but be sure to always mention my master too, Myrthos the Great.
