As far as I know you should be able to. Just remember to do a backup of everything first.

I didn't have a test board setup with 3.8 with YAAS 3.8, and upgraded both. Product IDs are the same as previous versions, so it should work fine.

Nice, glad to see this got upgraded. I'll use this when it's more stable.

Shouldn't be much longer than a few days. Just trying to figure out two display bugs, and fine-tune the XML Sheet and write up upgrade instructions.

For the most part upgrading should be pretty self-explanatory.

Brilliant, can not wait for this to be final

Thanks for the vb4 release.

I tested this on a vb4 test board (upgraded from 3.8.2 version to 4.0.0 BETA RELEASE) upgrade is ok, everything looks fine except Postbit: Style and Profile Tab Style.
both needs style improvements.

Can you please describe Point system?

Could you go into a bit more detail on how you think it should look?

With the Point System, I'm working on a text document that will be packaged with the next release that goes over the Point System.

Works great on vbulletin 4.0 latest version live forums! You can see it in action here at www.brotherhoodofgamers.com

Hope that you can sometime implemen to separate different categories in postbit and not show medals together :)

Good job!

Bouncer222 10 Jan 2010 15:23

Except eh yeah.. it shows up wrong in profile, but you already know that.

And what is the points system about exactly??
