Re: New Update to the site???
The green and yellow things are ads from skimlinks. jelsoft sold vbulletin. Now its called vbulletin solutions. They've added advertizing garbage and IMO is going downhill. These can be turned on or off via the control panel. This version is 3.8.7, and that skimlinks mod had to be custom added.
The old VB versions were just asking to be hacked. They probably thought the back door was the arcade, which had some security issues without the latest upgrade of that arcade mod. All the mods need to be upgraded and some arent compatable with the new vb versions like the photoplog.
Another minor problem with upgrading to 4.xx or 5xx is the custom templates I created. My guess is no one else really wants to take the time or effort to revert them or keep them.
The arcade was never put back although it is still probably in the data base.
The latest version 4.2.2 still has a few bugs but this 3.8.7 release was pretty stable so I see why they are staying with it but eventually it will be put into the graveyard by vb.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
