    Personally, I don't really like vB4's over-streamlined design, but I guess we'll see what happens with this addition anyway.

    Good luck on the update.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    No, it will not. Sorry, but we didn't have an addon keeping track of that before, so there's just no data for it to have to look up.

    Darn, that means "Zekurom" is still up for grabs! I need that quickly. :3 (Don't change it now, though, please.)

    Hmm. What about other things, like avatars, signatures, blog posts, inbox PMs, VMs, and unsernotes?

    Don't worry, none of that gets reset.

    Let me guess... are the data synched between both forum versions right now? And when the real switch happens, will there be significant downtime?

    The test forum is a separate installation, using an old backup of our forums database. When we update to vB4, this forum will be updated. The test forum will then remain in place for us to test new updates when they come out before applying them to this forum.

    Of course, that'll come with a downtime for the update. Right? Or not? If there is, how long it'll be?

    We honestly don't know. Could be as long as two days in the worst case scenario, though we're going to try and keep it to a minimum.

    I'm all set for the upgrade, then. Even if it means downtime, as long as the forums get better.

    By the way, may I ask, in addition to the essential addons, what are the addons that you plan to use in the (near) future?

    All of the approved add-ons listed here will be implemented. Outside of those, there aren't any add-ons we plan on implementing at the moment.

    The Awards System... is that just for testing, or will that be available for users after the upgrade?

    If I understand correctly, the current data on the test forum will be wiped and then this server's data will be copied over.

    Edit: Nevermind, actually. I re-read what you posted, Archaic. This server will be updated and the test will continue to be for testing.

    I browsed through the add-ons Archaic mentioned, and I must say, I'm impressed by quite a few of them. Really looking forward to using some of them.

    Any idea of a 'Tournaments' Add-on? Similar to the one we have now? Or are we just sticking to the Colosseum?
