A bunch of new features in the forum

Filed under: Software Updates — by at 10:07 pm on Tuesday, April 29, 2008

We’ve just upgraded our forums to vBulletin 3.7.0, which adds a ton of new features!  Some in particular:

  • Some social networking kinds of features, such as friends and groups.
  • You can create photo galleries, either for yourself or as part of a group.
  • Your profile pages are much better looking and more informative.  Here is SpiderX22’s profile for an example.  In addition to the new vBulletin features and layout, your profile page also shows how many files you’ve uploaded, how many StreetView locations you’ve added, and your current progress in GEMMO.  You can also leave messages for users directly on their profile page.

There are a ton of other small bug fixes and enhancements, but those are the major changes.  If you have any problems, please let me know.  Have fun!
