    Version 3.7.0 of vBulletin was just recently released. There was a security flaw with the initial release. It's been fixed now, but I ussually like to wait a while before installing any major revision.

    As far as those features (Chatbox, Friends, etc.), those are add on hacks. We have several hacks installed here, however I can say that it's not likely that we'll ever add a chat box. The server load is just to high and would slow the whole site to a crawl. It's better used on sites with fewer members, or sites that have the money to spend on a very high end server solution.

    We are planning a migration to a faster server near the end of this month. Getting set up with a faster, more reliable server is our main priority with this upgrade, but we will also evaluate the site at that time and there will probably be some changes.

    Stay tuned for more info as we develop our upgrade plan.

    Your suggestions are appreciated. We may look into those options further in the future. It's just that right now our priority is to improve the speed of this site by getting it moved onto a better server.

    We also accomplished our primary goal of getting the forum onto a faster, more reliable server.
