Any particular reason this forum appears to be stuck in the late 2000s? vBulletin has gone way beyond where this forum is at, as has the internet. I think you're way overdue for an upgrade.

You should check the forums for new posts, and not rely on the count on the home page. Everything is up to date with the forum

I wasn't referring to that. I was referring to the fact that vBulletin 3.8.0 was released 10 years ago (and yes I know you're on 3.8.11 at this point but that doesn't matter). The point is the forum layout/design is 10 years old. The latest version of vBulletin is 5.5.0. There is absolutely no reason for this site to continue using 10-year-old software.

There are plenty of reasons why. Modern design, support for mobile devices without having to use an app like Tapatalk and more.

Is there a specific reason why you only post about the forum code/design instead of what's important here, which is MUSIC

I'm very well aware about new versions, other forum scripts and so on, but this one works just fine for us, and it still receives security updates, so there's no reason to change anything...and with Facebook taking over for so many forums, no need for me to spend time working on a new version/script, when this works so well

Outdated software and designs will turn people away, but if you insist that it "works for you", go ahead keep using it. Your loss.

Is there someone trying to sell forum design services or products here?

In over 18 years, no one (before now) has ever complained about this forum, the design or usability, if you want to sell me something, just write me a message via the message form, which also works
