I'm not on Facebook either. So a format change like that one would not work for me. :(

Fortunately, vBulletin 4.X is nothing like Facebook. I prefer this (vBulletin 4.X) model Forum to the one we're using now. Check out their website for an idea of how it works.

We would never make you use another account (especially FB) to login to our forum lol....

I have FaceBook but do not login to other sites that want you to use your FB account... it just seems too weird to me..

We ended up using xenforo for the forum and gallery... very similar to vBulletin but the engineers that are doing the conversion convinced me that it is better than vBulletin.. I really think that after the initial shock of using it we will all be grateful that the conversion took place. It is a LOT faster for sure and we won't have to worry about losing everything :)

Looks like this: xenforo.com/community/

tonight we will be migrating over all of the posts and gallery images and then bringing up the new forum and gallery site. The URL for the new forum is community.papertreyink.com (it might have forum at the end depending on final configuration)

This site will remain up so that all of the store gallery links will still work, etc.... but we will no longer be adding images to this gallery nor will we be doing much to maintain this site save for those images and the occasional backup :)

I have already disabled registration for this forum and gallery.

Your CURRENT login id and password will work on the new forum.

Will update with more info later :)
