          Facebook has some interesting expat forums. Perhaps this forum is a dinosaur stuck in a tar pit...

              After 8 days I can finally log in again, I had to reboot my (android) tablet and a frind did some other stuff wich I don't understand to much. My old PM I can not find any more... Well, it might take another 8 days again before I find it back.

                worst upgrade EVER.

                I get a load of extraneous characters whenever I make a new line (euro/accented characters). They don't stay.

                And when I try to view threads i created, I can't see other people's posts without clicking somewhere else.

                Seriously terrible.

                  I am ready to try something new; a link or two would be helpful.

                      Uhh ... I dunno. Like BA, I can't delete any PM's. Every time I try to delete it says they are gone, but then I get the same message when I try to send a new one" You have exceeded etc".

                        testing, since another poster said he couldn't post in this thread.

                          I just can't help but think that there's a bit more going on than meets the eye, ol' mate Paman nowhere to be seen, something is a bit on the nose here..... Could it be that the real powers behind LII feel we have too much freedom & so are attempting to implement a subversive spill & fill program with Paman as their “puppet' ? ...

                            So what's the result? Is this still a going concern?

                              I'd spend a few minutes contemplating this post if I were you. I think it could be rewarding.

                                Hi all,

                                I apologize for the slow response from my side. Unfortunately we had kicked off the upgrade shortly before I went on a trip in which I didn't have an Internet connection. So needless to say I was shocked when I got back and saw the plethora of feedback this thread (and elsewhere) has received. So let me address a few major themes I saw in this thread.

                                1. Login/Posting/etc and general caching issues

                                This seems to be a problem in the way vBulletin is now rewriting URLs for vBulletin5. Additionally this was further confounded by the fact during the migration vBulletin did not honor our previous configuration which used a specific caching engine (memcached) and instead relied on a more unreliable database based caching engine. I've made some tweaks which I believe have solved this issue. Please let me know if you are still seeing these issues. It really helps me if you can tell me what specific action you were taking and what page(s) you were on when you noticed it.

                                2. Communication about forum upgrade

                                The Admin team had notified the Mod team last year that an upgrade was pending, but we ended up holding off on the upgrade. As others have noted in this thread, vBulletin5 wasn't ready for prime time for quite some time, so we ended up delaying the upgrade for several months. Unfortunately we failed to provide a heads up to the community and to the moderator team when we decided to pull the trigger on the migration.

                                3. Why upgrade to vBulletin5? Why not something else?

                                I had proposed a migration away from vBulletin to the moderator and admin team from vBulletin to Discourse which has designed with modern forums in mind additionally the support team behind it seems to be doing a better job than vBulletin has. Unfortunately this proposal was turned down by the mod team when it was last discussed.

                                4. Profile picture cropping issues

                                This seems to be another bug in the way that vBulletin performed its database upgrade from 4 to 5. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find anything I can do to recover previous profile pictures. I apologize that there wasn't anything that could be done there. Try re-uploading it again.
