Really it's frustrating that this site is still stuck on old crappy software. I can't even make youtube vids posted on here go to fullscreen.

As far as I know, the new vBulletin has some shortcomings and lots of people didn't like it. There is also an issue of upgrading everything... including the license. No always an easy process.

I love it. I prefer the internet (and electronics in general) software and layout from the 2005-2008 era.

In my opinion the site is perfectly fine. If you want full screen YouTube videos open it in a new tab. If you are browsing MTF on a mobile device too bad.

Because newer site designs are nasty and aesthetically appalling.

I agree with Yves.

You seem to know a lot about what the admins do and don't. We've been in touch with VS about this matter for a while. The latest message was that an update would not improve the forum, but in fact remove a lot of the possible customizations.

Lol that's simply rubbish. At least update it to VB 4

There's been a lot of technical issues with VB4 so that doesn't seem to be a possibility.

I just think this current software is quite old. Quite buggy itself. Are VS looking into an upgrade?

I like how it looks (the design), but it's a joke that we can't post tweets or vines, among other things

We have some upgrades planned around August/September. This will not be a simple upgrade so its taking time to plan it all out to minimize downtime and cut over bugs.
