    though the newer version would have been faster , added security however the looks were not good fro eyes. this low earthy tones are natural and you can browse the forum for long. the brightish colours would make one's eyes strain quickly.


    happy to see the old one back

    Yes it is. I wish I could the change the default grey theme and I'm all happy. Probably on some thread I read something about theme changing, anyone knows?

    It's just like Old Monk. Though I've tried a lot of RUM brand but still my heart says Old Monk.
    Cheers to xBhp old theme!

    Thumbs up Re: A step back to VB4

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for understanding everything... What we experience on the forum surely matters. And a good communication system's basic value is communication. It doesn't always have to be latest, it just has to be best at it. For right now, we believe VB4 will do a better job.

    Anyways, we're not closed-minded on the idea of having VB5 in the future, so all those who liked the features of VB5, I can only say, let's be positive. VB5 requires some tuning, some big and small adjustments, plus some feature additions to make our experience delightful enough.
    The Skin/ Theme should not be a worry, because custom skins are a part of mostly all kinds of forum softwares, be Invision or vBulletin or others.

    Anyhow, we hope its a pleasant feeling for all of you to be back on the Xbhp, as we always knew it.

    This version of Xbhp is the best. Let it stay as it is.

    Thanks for putting it out there.

    Are they going to open up a beta-port/site for vB5 testing so that interested end-customers can check and give inputs?

    In my experience, nothing is best, it can only get better(or worse).

    phew, that learning curve was a rouge wave !
    the upgrade was like the bullets running on efi .. somethings are best left alone (or engineered, tuned and tested thoroughly before coming out in to the public)

    Thanks a ton to mods for bringing back technically challenged noobs like me...VB5 was more like a game of thorns. The fact that mods should take note of is, any new learning curve demands alot of unlearning of already acquired skill sets and relearning new skills which often is difficult. So newer versions of any software should make unlearning gradual n relearning simplified which was not the case with VB5. Anything radical, sounds cool but is practically non viable.

    By end customers, do you mean Xbhp members?
    Well, no such plan immediately, but yes, the suggestion is a good one. Will try working on this suggestion.

    It could be an address on Xbhp itself, where members can test the new version within any implications on our existing data.
