    Is there a software upgrade about to occur here, similar to the one at ETSG? Sorry if I missed a notification.

    I hope to hell there won't be as the software here is far better than that at everythingsg and EpiphoneTalk.

    There will be later this year, probably in June. I will make an announcement about it at some point.

    While I like the current forum software MLP is run on, it is not supported anymore (risk of security exploits), and I sure as hell don't want to upgrade to their latest version (5) which is known to be bloated and slow.

    May I suggest preparing a tutorial for users, so that we avoid the confusion, ensuing elsewhere?

    I've already made a tutorial for basic uploading, pic linking and usage of the new media section. I'll bring it over here when the time comes.

    One question that has been burning in my mind, however, will there still be paid and VIP memberships?

    Paid subs for big boards like MLP and SS.org, yes. For smaller boards, no, only VIP will be given out by the mods as usual.

    Ok, cool. I'm probably not the only one wondering about that.

    I hope there is some way to preserve or port over the larger Social Groups. The Epi Brethren has 83 members, 63,000 posts and almost 800 threads. Perhaps sub-threads or something? There's a lot of good info as well as community going on there. We put a ton of effort and hours into keeping those groups going.

    While I completely understand the need to upgrade, I am really hoping that the software being used on the other forums isn't used here. There are other options so hopefully one of those can be chosen instead.

    Also, with any luck, the currently bloated and slow ver 5 will have the kinks worked out by then through incremental improvements.
