    Welcome to the new and improved Amibay!

    I've spend the last couple of days completely upgrading Amibay to the latest version of the vBulletin forum software which we use. This has taken us from a very dated and ageing vBulletin 3.8.7 to the latest vBulletin 4.2.2

    This upgrade has a lot of instantly obvious changes and improvements, as well as many under the hood.

    • New forum design and layout
    • New member profiles
    • Member blogs - create your own retro blog - this could be about your collection, your favourite games, emulation, what you have been restoring etc.
    • New WYSIWYG post editor allowing inline image and video attachment and much more.
    • Right-hand quick info panel showing latest posts, new sales and a search cloud.
    • Activity stream, showing latest activity by all members.
    • Built in CMS which we have plans to utilise fully into the future.

    And much more..
