    Dear users!

    Today we're going to launch the updated design and engine of our forum.

    We have changed forum's engine from vBulletin → XenForo.
    Tests succeeded, so we have replaced all data base from the previous engine to the new one.
    We spent more than one day and did the great job.

    The new engine was a necessity, since the old one vBulletin had many lacks, inappropriate and simply impossible to complete and remodel.

    The new engine of our website is very flexible, more stable and more user friendly.

    So, here are some common advantages:

    • Our forum works 60% faster at the moment, according stats. I believe you all will notice the fast speed of files uploading and data processing. You can upload images in new message with one click, multiupload is available. There's no need to use foreign scripts / image upload services.
    • Advanced system of rewards.
    • Brand new notification system.
    • Complete support registration through Facebook.
    • Intuitive Ajax-driven interface, which is very handy to use.
    • More comfortable administration.
    • And many other handy tools.
    The following updates will be added soon:

    • Blogs
    • Albums
    • Chat.
    If you have noticed any mistakes / lacks, feel free to write in this topic.
    We apologize for the temporary inconvenience on the forum.
    Thanks everyone!
    :)

    SallyCooper :oops: Thanks for sharing your opinion, it's very important for us, really. The forum is for you people, so we're glad to have ANY thoughts about it.
    I promise, the forum will function faster than before, you'll see it. Just a little patience, please.
    As for blogs and photos, they will function very very soon! And it's going to be much easier to use all of it! ;)
    Thanks for your patience!

    upd.
    One more pleasant update: from now on you can upload photo with ONE CLICK, when replying to message.
    Oh, and when you upload photos to the album, you don't have to refresh the page.
    Hope you'll appreciate!
    Love y'all!:D
