    What do you mean we didn't tell anyone it was happening?!

    Seriously though, we have, alright, Shaun has, been working long and hard at this for a verylong time. He's gone to bed for a bit now and there is still the odd random bug which will be sorted out over the next 24 hours. If you find one plese post it in the site errors forum (EduGeek.net Site Problems).
    We have moved up to vBulletin v4.0 and it has lots of funky new features, in fact,too many for my sleep deprived brain to list, but just look at the blogs to get the general idea. Several custom features that Shaun had created for the old site will be coming back once he's had a rest, so please give him time and don't complain about missing features.
    As VB 4.0 is now a full CMS system it also goves us scope for 'proper' news and reviews sections, so please bear with us as we sort these out, and expect a funky competiton tomorrow to celebrate the launch of the new site. Hopefully the prize will be either a PS3 Slim or an Android based phone, until then enjoy and have a play with all of the toys the site now has.

    Great work Shaun and all who were involved in creating the new EduGeek. Thank you for your efforts.

    The competition sounds epic also

    Looks great! I'm liking the way the quick reply box pops up directly below whichever post you want to reply to - multi quote's pretty cool too

    Only issue I've found so far is submitting posts appears to be a bit slow

    I don't like it. I hope it's just a case of having to get used to it, but first impressions are that it isn't 'clear' enough. Everything seems to flow into everything else (which is great for a normal website, but I don't think it suits a forum). I prefer the 'modular' theme that the old version had.

    Also, I don't like that the latest 10 posts aren't shown on the very first page - I hope this is a feature that will return.

    The site flows because it is no longer just a forum. It is a full blown CMS system which we intend to use to it's fullest. News, reviews and lots of other goodies in the pipeline, and all, ofcourse free to you, our members. Once we have ironed out the bugs and got the old modules working again (top 10 posts, eye spy etc) we can begin work in earnest.
