FYI: Forums upgraded

Hey folks,

Tonight we brought the forums down for about an hour and upgraded to the latest version of the 3.x vBulletin system that our forums are built upon. We've also made some other under-the-hood changes that were needed on the live server to prepare for the soon-to-be-released TouchArcade iOS app.

Everything went smoothly tonight, but do please let us know, here, if you encounter any errors or see anything out of the ordinary with the forums.

Thanks!

Font size in social group messages has become too small now. It used to be same size as the forum posts earlier. Now it's barely legible on the iPad unless you zoom in and then keep scrolling left and right to read every sentence.

I opened Beta Tester Alliance and the top part was normal: info, users, pictures, but then it had this Social Group Discussion part for 2 links: Beta Tester Alliance and The Bar? It seems Crex just created that, but nvm, off-topic. So I clicked TBTA link and the messages on top were the oldest and newest were on last page, like in normal threads. Is this a bug or are we supposed to go to the last page every time? I liked it better when the group's latest posts were on first page...
