    I'll keep this short for tonight as I'm exhausted but we have successfully migrated over to the Xenforo software! This is very exciting for the future of the site and I am very pleased with the way it came out.

    It will be an adjustment but it's all for the better. This software is soooo much better than what vBulletin had to offer.

    Quick Notes:
    - ALL statistics and posts have been saved and moved over.
    - Update your bookmarks to http://www.scarletbuckeye.com (some of the old links won't work temporarily) that will be fixed soon.
    - I still need to make some color adjustments (links, etc).
    - "Likes" are the new "thanks."
    - I will be adding the twitter feed, poll, and countdown on the main page.
    - Sports bookie will return better than ever this summer.

    That's all I can think of for tonight but go explore and have fun. I think you guys will love this software!

    As always, if you experience anything wacky/weird going on post it here so I can fix things. With such a big move, I expect some things to not work right out of the gate.

    Small little update. I hope you guys are enjoying the new software as much as I am. It's such an improvement over what we had been using.

    Sometime this weekend I will add a bunch more smilies, adjust colors as needed, hopefully try to get the twitter issue worked out -- we will see on that one. A new front page will be added -- can't guarantee a date but I hope it will be soon.

    One thing in particular that I like about this software is the Alert system. I like being notified when someone likes your post or when another event happens. It kinda keeps you in the loop of what's going on around the forum.

    Another cool thing is that if you're making a post, you can get someone's attention by typing @ followed by their username. Like this @OSUBasketballJunkie. This will alert them that they are wanted in a post or something might be of interest to them. Neat feature.

    As always if you have any suggestions please let me know and I'll see if I can implement them on here.
