    List of several site updates!!!

    Hey everyone. I was politely reminded that I had not fulfilled my end of the bargain to those forum members who donated money to help support this forum for the past several months. As such, I'm getting myself in gear and fulfilling my promises to all of you.

    Here are a list of forum maintenance and upgrades I have completed over the past couple of days:

    - Upgraded to a newer version of VBulletin. This is a transparent upgrade, but a very beneficial one.
    - Fixed the front page rotation. Smugmug recently updated their service and it broke the slideshow. All fixed.
    - Fixed Tapatalk. It never worked right and I got frustrated and stopped trying. Yup, that's 100% working now, too!
    - Updated the forum's header to look much cleaner and nicer!
    - Added the ability for all members to upload images to the site instead of hosting them remotely!
    - Increased the inbox size for all members!
    - Added a donor badge system to show all members who have donated in the past or will donate in the future. Thanks!


    I know the site has been down for a few days, but I wanted to get everything done and make sure it was done right. I apologize for the downtime and hope you will enjoy the updates to the site.

    I do realize that the "What's New" tab's default is VBulletin's "Activity Stream," which I am not a huge fan of.
    I will try to find a way to fix that here shortly.

    For now the smaller "New Posts" just below the buttons takes you to the original format.

    Thanks everyone. VBulletin reps insist that the "Activity Stream" is the future of forums, and that's why they keep it up there and not let you change it easily.

    However, I think I found a workaround.
