Default 3/11/15 - ClubCrosstrek.com Switching to vBulletin - Expect Downtime

Hi all,

I started this forum in 2012 using Simple Machines Forum software as it was best suited for my needs, I knew the ins and outs of it, and it was free :P.

Since then, I was acquired by SocialKnowledge.com and the site has grown and grown with more users and posts every day. In an effort to better your ClubCrosstrek experience, the guys at SocialKnowledge have decided to upgrade the forum software to the industry-standard vBulletin. It is faster, safer, and more feature-rich than SMF and is built to handle larger sized forums.

The update is happening this Wednesday, March 11th and ClubCrosstrek will be down around mid-day EDT for a few hours.

When the site is live again, it will look something very similar to the attached screenshot here:


If you have any questions or concerns please post here or PM/email me directly. I won't know a lot of the logistics behind it, but I know that the guys at SocialKnowledge have already tested a full clone of ClubCrosstrek running vBulletin and don't expect any issues.


Thank you for all of the support!

Nothing! Everything will remain the same for the end-user (you guys, the loyal forum members). Mostly just aesthetic changes and then changes on the backend.

I hate change too. They always linger in my pockets, all loose and making noise.


Honestly, so far, besides the avatars initially not showing up, things are working as usual so far. And I'm already used to the vBulletin, so this is a welcome change IMO.

Color scheme will take a little getting used to, but overall certainly a good change. Looks good.
