    That isn't very reassuring for someone who uses this site. Cast Care Cure Community into the cloud and let's see what happens!

    That said, as someone who was here during the last attempt at an upgrade to v-bulletin, I hope things go better than the last time.

      Why not think about doing one thing at a time, move then "upgrade"?

        One of the reasons for the dramatic dropoff in CC membership after the last major upgrade, was that it was not even possible for some members to log on afterwards. There were problems with the URL, as I recall. Assuming that CC will need to be offline during the upcoming changes, I wonder if it would be possible for a mass email or pm (not just a thread or post here) to be sent to members, letting us know when the forum is up and running again - and how to log on (if the process has been altered). That way, the community would not feel cut adrift.

            A "cloud" s still a physical server located somewhere. Vbulletin is relatively secure if you keep it up to date, where it can fall down is the use of hacks to add features like "like" buttons. The software development only secures their own features and allowing 3rd party code opens the door to insecurity.

            Applying updates should be easy but if you have a lot of hacks/modifications it gets more complex and time consuming. When I had my own vbulletin forum initially I added lot of features/hacks/mods over time I took them all out as I just didn't have time to edit with every update.

              I should of also added that if you want to go down the like button route you should also add a dislike to get a balanced perspective.

                Any of the older members remember how Max from Quebec would get so mad at the rating system? Gawd he's been gone a long time. Wonder if his daughter is married - maybe even a mom now?

                  When you move to vBulletin's Cloud, they upgrade the site to the latest version.

                  Excellent suggestion Bonnette, but I don't believe we will be offline at all since vBulletin they will be upgrading their own software. Steven will fully research this and then decisions will be made by Wise.
