    Hi All,

    In line with the announcement, we'll be upgrading The Kennel over the next few days. There should be a little downtime and we'll try and make it as smooth as possible (hopefully only a few hours).

    Once we're up, expect a little shock. As with most site changes. We'll try our best to make it as awesome as possible! (trust us, Xenforo is amazing compared to what we have now).

    We've admitted that vBulletin is ancient and clunky for a while - let's start fresh this season and help The Kennel community grow.

    For any issues please feel free to post here and our moderating team will be happy to help.

    Thanks!

    Nash

    If anyone wants to have a play with what goes on behind the scenes of Xenforo, you can signup here for a free demo: https://xenforo.com/demo
    If anyone is just wondering what the new forum will (kinda) look like, you can see here: https://xenforo.com/community/

    Soon you'll be able to easily upload images again, and link videos/pictures with ease. Not to mention posting without having to be manually approved, having redirection scripts pop up, AND not (hopefully) worry about spammers.

    Onwards to the future!!!

    *raises a glass and cheers Nash (he's the site programmer/admin so be nice :D )*

    The Kennel down?

    Looks like Pornhub will get a spike in viewers for a few days.

    The app might be down for a day while we reupload the new corresponding app to the App/Play store. Apple App store might take longer due to their approval process.

    Thanks Nash for the heads up. I guess anything that will ensure smoother running is good.

    Xen is FAR leaner than VB is too, so chances are once it's all done and back up again, this place should be really snappy and responsive :)

    It shouldn't crash or time or as much. Database and system requirements are far less for Xenforo, so it's shouldn't slow up like it does.
