Well we'll be upgrading to 3.7 and archiving the current forum :) We'll have a FAQ soon.

Hay cool :D You mean we'll be beta testing? or will there be a new release that I simply don't know about?

I wish not to imply, but I'm sure you know there will be fear of loosing all the current work everyone has done, but I have faith in you :D

I hope it all goes as according as planed!

Are we using the Tag feature? I don't imagine it'd be feasible for this forum :)

will all the "social" features of 3.7 be set to enabled or disabled?
cos there are already plenty of site's to upload your photo's, or join the pizza fan club...

We haven't decided. The social groups might be used for "teams".

wow I'm just going over the link given earlier. It looks like they're turning the new version of vBulletin into a myspace/facebook ... Is the forum going to use these features such as the profile customization and buddy list?

I suppose I can just wait for the F.A.Q :roll:

From what I saw, they are not on that scale. They are a step up from what we have now, but it isn't radically different.

Buddy lists are already supported in your profiles; see the navbar on User CP towards the bottom. 3.7 adds 2-way "facebook-style" friendships as well.
