    The migration from vB to XF is complete.

    It is quite different but I like it, it will take some getting used to.

    There will certainly be a transition period for everyone, but we have no choice. vBulletin had too many vulnerabilities. Xenforo is a more secure platform. In many ways, it is better.

    Just logged in for the first time, a couple comments:
    • I had a heck of a time finding the "login" link. On YF, it's extremely obvious what to click to log in, here it took me a while to try the Quick Menu link on the top right.
    • Maybe I missed it, it might be worth mentioning on YF that if you had an account before, it's still valid.
    • I use the "Read New Posts" search feature all the time on YF, is there something like that here? (And if not, will you add it?)
    • I guess you'd prefer (or require?) aviation-related avatars here?
    I think you've done a good job keeping the look and feel comfortably familiar with xF compared to vB. I like the post editor here more already!

    Ok, I see the "New Posts" link right at the top is actually similar to what I'm used to on YF, it just looked different because I haven't read anything here!

    Hi Ward,

    • The log-in certainly isn't as visible as YF, mostly because XenForo's software streamlines some basic functions.
    • All member accounts carried over from vBulletin, so new registrations are unnecessary.
    • I see you found the New Posts link on the navbar!
    • On avatars, yes... same protocol. Thanks for uploading a topic related image. :)
