    Well, this is something that needs to be done by someone who knows vBulletin, PHP development, can assess what custom PHP work has been done and what could break when upgrading vBulletin. It would probably include deciding which of those custom development that would break are worth keeping at all (are they being used, for example Rebreather World - Rebreathers for Scuba Diving - the next step). There are probably a few additional things that would need to be upgraded as well (such as the google analytics code, the current one is deprecated and will be EOL'ed soon).

    Since it doesn't seem that that expertise exists in the community, it'd probably need to be outsourced (and paid for). There are vBulletin skilled people out there, management would need to reach out to them (for example the former TDS system administrators)

    Since this type of work can only be paid for by sponsorship (I rarely click on ads), I have bought sponsorship today and for a year. I hope this is used to improve the site for us all.

    Just one negative thing to say: "...just so a few can type on their phone" is a short sighted view and ill informed view of the world that we currently live in.

    Another option might be to offer forum runner as it supports the version of vBulletin used by RBW, namely 3.6.x. The drawback is that unlike Tapatalk Forum Runner doesn't offer an app for Blackberry's yet. I am told that many prefer it to Tapatalk.

    If that covers Droids and iPhone users.... That's better than the current option...

    Ah bummer. Recently added Tapatalk to my android and really enjoy browsing the various other forums using it. Just came in searching to see if anyone else was getting the issue.

    Ah well.

    Can I allocate my leftover ADM magazine funds to this cause?

    Please post a link here if you need to raise more money.

    It's not the money, it's the limited time I have to make it happen
