It's coming....

As posted in my announcement:

A complete relaunch of Lucasforums.com ...

A whole new look and feel... with version 3.0 of VBulletin

The folks working on the project have done nothing short of an amazing job with converting over the entire LucasForums to the new look.

Everyone should enjoy what we're about to launch... any day now.

Better look, many bug fixes... tons of new options... faster performance and even more.

So keep a close watch on the forums over the next day or two...

***NOTE*** and no, you won't lose any posts when we re-launch the forums.

Sounds like a great improvement! I'm curious as to what some of these new options will be.

Woohoo, I've been waiting for this moment for about half a year . From the previews of the main page and the GFN forums I've seen, it looks like VB3 is going to be great

Wow! So no one else here is expecting 3 months downtime when they try to implement it? Guess it's just me then. I am however taking bets if anyone would like to place a wager.

Hey!! Will we have points and a shop to buy glows, custom titles and italic usernames and such? -- Cool.

Joshi: don't be so negative. You should trust the admins.. I mean, they can easily transfer your mod-powers to me.. %)

I don't think the points system will be added again. That was a mod installed to the forums a while ago, and then it was removed because the administrators didn't think it was working out very well. So, I doubt they'd install it again. (I think)

So then, the RPG-hack is gone already, too.

Also, I think it was rather because of something they called "misbehaviour". It somehow ended up that someone put "DGJ" into half the forum's users custom titles. And as far as I can remember forumites willingly literally sold they body to gain some "money".

*sigh* Fun.

Woots, can't wait.

I wonder what'll be added.

I wonder if the firefox bugs will be fixed.

And I wonder if my sig will still work in the swamp.

1) Johsi, I'll take your bet

2) Many of the current hacks will be gone, but we have plenty of new goodies up our sleeves for the 3.0 version as some fantastic hacks have been created. We'll make sure everything is stable before we start adding cool hacks

3) IG - Firefox bugs are all ironed out and yes, your sig will still work

Data migration could start as soon as tonight. We'll keep everyone informed.

Yeahr, and now Joshi's gotta drop pants.


And no Joshi, a few strange looking smilies do not mean downtime, so drop it already and dance.


So not that I think you care with a naked Joshi around, but whale gone, eyh!

This is what I've been waiting for, quick reply. And just for the record, first time I get into my User CP and I can't get to any of my sibscribed threads due to database problems. That's gotta count for something.

But really, nice work guys, I like the new layout and stuff. Really great.

I don't normally post outside of the X-Wing Alliance and Star Wars Classic Gaming forums, but I felt I should post here to let you guys know that I love what you've done to the place.
