We have made some pretty significant decisions regarding BGO and wanted to keep you all in the loop.

1. In the very near future, we will be moving to a new web hosting service. This will require some brief downtime as the new site propagates. Otherwise, you will likely notice no changes.

2. We will be upgrading to the final and most up to date version of vBulletin. There will be some site changes associated with this upgrade, the extent of which we are not yet sure of.

3. With these upgrades the site will be faster and more secure. Some features here may, by necessity, change due to compatibility issues with previous modifications and the new software.

Some current or impending issues to be aware of:

- The BGO Image Gallery is no longer supported and currently only works in 'view only' mode. We may replace it but have found that very few members utilize image software here, so that is an open question.

- We have uninstalled the Video Gallery due to ongoing issues and a lack of member use of that product. We will not be replacing or updating it.

- We will upgrade our BGO Chatroom software once other upgrades are completed and should have a bright shiny new chatroom well before games start this year.

- Our Post 'Likes' software is no longer supported and has been uninstalled. We do plan on finding a replacement software so you can recognize posts by other members.

We will not know with 100% certainty which features may be improved, replaced, or retired post-vBulletin upgrade, but will work through those as we are able to determine which can be continued, and which are incompatible with the upgraded site. Thanks for your patience as we bring the site up to current standards and install the best forum software available.

It's weird without the likes. I like something and want to let that be known at times. Just.......weird. Funky weird.
