    I liked the old hacked-UBB hybrid.
    It had the features where you could see who was on at the time, and seemed bug free.
    Why not just go back to that version?

    I think that it's too late now to go back, isn't it?

    Really, the only option available is to wait and go to vB...

    Hey Mod dude, how long would the conversion process take? Meaning, how long will SG be down for when the upgrade does occur?

    all your answers are belong to me

    #1 the who's online and track threads are built into vB by default, they will be in there, it's a lot of work to hack the UBB

    #2 we can't go back in versions of the UBB, we are using 6.01 and stuck with it, can't go backward, only forward

    #3 the conversion could take at most an hour, I once did a conversion and it took only minutes, but the size of this forum is like 700MB i think, so it could take some time, then we gotta make sure all settings are where we want them at all, plan on it being out a few hours prolly, of course we will ONLY do it late at night when the forum is least active....

    Thx for the answers Brent and Ken.
    Hopefully the transition will go smoothly.

    I have a question though.
    Howcome you guys upgrade the UBB so fast?
    Wouldn't it be better to wait and see how the upgrades are (bugwise) before changing to them?

    In the vB 2.0 there is an option you can set to have it Pop Up a message on the forum itself if you have a new PM! Sweet, those of ya'll that use PM's will like that feature so y ou can see if you get a new one or not, see vB is just so much better!
