How to use VBulletin
 
As the sticky says, we'll be switching software in a few days to VBulletin. The interface will be very different and we will likely miss many of the functions that we're used to in UBB.

I was hoping to solicit tips for neat stuff we can do in the new software. We can get started with people who use VBulletin at other forums, but I figure this thread will pick up as we start exploring the new software. Questions that come up about how to use VBulletin's features are welcome as well.

vB pwns UBB, if only for Search

iron, a "Meet vB" post would probably be a good thing.

here are some cool things about vB right off:

Search is much easier and straightforward

It is possible to send PMs to multiple people - they essentially work like private threads.

There is a built in download function for PMs.

There are suggestions for related threads at the bottom of the thread you are reading.

Quotes include reference to quoted poster.

Can I send a virus to BluffThis by PM that prevents him from posting on any message board ever again?

niss,

no, but there may be a mod for vB that allows this

Pros and Cons of vB and UBB

vB
Pro: search feature, multiple-PM-recipients, etc
Con: THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA

UBB
Pro: everyone is already using it and it's working fine
Con: none

mbillie,

UBB is way overtaxed for this volume of activity. It is not working fine.
