    Thank you for NOT upgrading!

    Anyone who visits the "sister" forum over on InstantCert knows by know that they just upgraded to the newer vBulletin. For eternity, both boards have been the same format - if anyone is curious what the "newer" version is, you can pop over and take a look. As for me, I've already stabbed myself in the eye and won't be over there again for a good long while. It is - totally - completely - and horribly terrible.

    THANK YOU to the powers that be for not upgrading this forum's platform.

    It's interesting that you reacted this way. I don't see why it's any better, but I don't hate it either.

    LOL well, I think there are settings that the user can modify, and I'm still exploring those - but for one thing, the posts aren't displayed in date order. So, when I post a reply to you in a second, it will appear at the bottom - that's not what the new format does. It shuffles the replies - unless I'm totally missing something, it's not in order OR reverse first order. ??

    I didn't realize that. That would be maddening. But surely that's an easy configuration for the admins?

    I *think* it's fixed or....well, I'm not really sure. There are a lot of user settings there that I'm not familiar with, and I'm just clicking everything. Seems to be *much* better for me now, but I'm not sure why.

    I've been over there, too. Learning the user settings is a five-year post-doc fellowship; it requires Level 13 security clearance and an IT Master's going in. As top-secret as Facebook privacy settings. I don't like it any more than you do. I thought only a Windows upgrade could get me this upset.
