    Default Bulbagarden Forums - vBulletin 4 Upgrade

    This thread is for discussion about the upcoming upgrade of the Bulbagarden forums to vBulletin 4. This update is currently scheduled for approximately 1 week from the time of this post.

    Select members have already seen our test forum. More members will be shown it this week.

    We intend to do something of a staggered release with this launch. We shall go live with the CMS disabled and only the most important core skins that are 100% done. From that point, we aim to release 1 skin a week after that until we've got all our old skins back, getting feedback from you the users as we go.

    The CMS will launch when it's ready, hopefully no more than a month later. We've got high hopes for this section, so we want to get it all set up right before we open it.

    On launch, we intend to have all the essential addons installed and working from the day vB4 is released, however some may be delayed shortly depending on their level of complexity to add. At this stage, we are not expecting to lose any level of forums functionality. The most obvious change here will be the switch back from ibProArcade to v3Arcade, due to stability concerns on vB4.

    Once we've done the vB4 upgrade, we'll be starting our move to get our forums mobile apps up. The approvals processes from Google and Apple may take a couple of weeks once we're ready to deploy those, so please be patient there.

    Will there also be an app-less mobile version of the site like there is for facebook?

    There will be a mobile style for the forums for people who don't want to use apps, yes. It'll be available as soon as we've updated.

    1 week from now... I'm looking forward to the upgrade. It'll also be my first vB4 forum that I'll ever use for real.

    Speaking of vB4, one question remains: What are the essential addons that will be activated when the upgrade is done? Also, what's CMS?

    Attached to this post I have a picture of the smilies as they appear in the blogs section.

    Some are shrunken, and some don't show up properly.

    Hang on... I think some of the plugins listed here... well, I have never seen such functionality on the current forums. I guess it's some of the new features?

    And these plugins, in addition to being new, are also essential. Nice. (What's defined as essential here?)

    The history feature of username changes, will that also include a history of our old usernames pre-upgrade?

    I gotta say, I'm lovin' how the stats and the About Me sections are merged. The profile layout, along with the list of groups joined, are very thoughtful. :3 One of my favorite new quirks is the ability to add videos! It's sweet and lovely! Although being able to upload a video would've been just as nice. =w=

    There's just a few things wrong. Like, I use the return Skin all the time, but the default typing text is black. ^^; That'll be fixed, I'm sure. In the Index, all the groups I've joined are on the bottom of the page, which makes it longer. I've noticed that the ability to link accounts and change usernames are missing. Don't know much about that. All of these, of course, are just minor things.

    Most functions still work, like the BB code. There's both many new things, and the familiar ones I'm sure people will love. Glad to see that Notifications work (Thanks, Green. XD). I sure hope to see the new skins once things get going! This'll be great~!

    Ivysaur for president. Ciao~!
