    We've gotta keep those software devs in work.

    I wish they would. There are many improvements that could be implemented by the vBulletin software geeks, but they seem very reluctant. One issue is the arcane internal search routine.

    That just baffles me. They wouldn't even have to write it themselves. They could buy a search module and insert it into their software. I'm sure there's something I'm missing but after all these years you'd think that search would be better.

    It baffles us, too ... but ... it's vBulletin. And vBulletin does what it wants, and vBulletin doesn't do what it doesn't want to do.

    It's a ploy to get admins to upgrade to version 5 - where all the problems in v4 have been fixed, supposedly.

    Afaik, we have no current plans to upgrade to version 5 anytime soon. Nor to we have any plans on changing to a different software application.

    I frequent a forum that upgraded to version t and it's now a horrid site to try to navigate around in. Everything we loved and have gotten used to in version 4 is gone ... everything changed, layout, commands, you name it ... all completely different, and it looks ugly to boot. We're better off keeping what we have, imho.

    Besides, even if we did upgrade, then ALL the other hacks (hacks can be good things too) that are used to perform different tasks like update counters, guarding against spammers, etc, all those have to then be upgraded ... and that runs into a huge chunk of Kroner (Danish currency).
