I apparently need to resize my avatar?
XenForo supports higher res avatars than the old vBulletin, so sometimes it doesn’t play nice with the really low res ones. If you can find a higher res version of your current avatar, that would work best.

I like that the new forums are still pretty lightweight and snappy.

Well done!

Big thanks to Shawn for making this possible, and MM for all his hard work. I think we got it guys. The site looks great, and runs better than it did in VB. Long live the forums.

Any chance for animated avatars again?

Big props to the site staff for "Phoenixing" the boards.

Everything looks good, though I miss the larger avatars and sub-avatar pics. Minor stuff that will hopefully be adjusted in the future.

Bummer that animated gifs aren't supported. Seems really weird to me that message forum software circa 2021 wouldn't include that.

I checked and it isn’t an option as far as I can see.

Old thread but seems that at least on xf2.0 or higher it may be possible with some nuance.


Add-on with permission settings for the use animated gif avatars per user groups/profiles if you so choose.

Bring back trophies, no one can beat my Donkey Kong Jr. high score.

Seriously, though, thanks Mouse Master and all involved in the database migration.

I kinda like the change, but all the broken thread links are a bummer. Any chance of mass-fixing them? I'd be willing to help automate that…

I'm late because I kept trying to load the forums from the main page sidebar which was my normal forum navigation method and that doesn't seem to work so I didn't notice it had come back online.

Regardless, I still laugh that the last main page 'news' update was from the last forum migration 8 years ago, also from MM.

I'm also appreciative that, despite a relative absence from daily forum activity, MM and others are still available when things get all borked and n-g.com needs a hero.

I miss 50 posts per page and the old feel. I'm a BBS dinosaur though and while I would like the old feel back as much as possible, I'm not likely to end up going anywhere else so do what you must.

Sincerely, cheers, I owe Shawn, MM, and others a beer for keeping my hangout around.
