Way in the back room there is some talk that the vBulletin upgrade is back on the stovetop. The version Andy wants for the upgrade was in beta until just recently and there have been successful migrations to v.3.7.0 within the Social Knowledge sphere.
We've also missed the rotating photo gallery photos on the portal page. I sure hope those come back too. Let me make a point of posting to this thread after the upgrade and status of the member map is considered. Thanks to all for your patience!
