    I see some new boxes appearing at the bottom of each thread.
    Was the site upgraded recently?
    What other changes were made?
    What do you do think about anything new that you see?

    I believe that Rob was talking about upgrating the forum software, but I can't remember the version we were running on previously.

    What boxes are you talking about? I don't see anything new.

    Maybe they were always there but I never noticed before. They don't always appear.
    Here is an example of "Similar Threads":

    That was there, at least when creating a new thread.

    Yup, I see those all the time. Like Geo said, they show up when you're creating a new thread. Shows you threads related to the topic you're starting, judged by key words in the title.

    There are I think many versions of Vbulletin. One other forum I'm on CNCzone.com, just upgraded(?) to a new one. What a mess it is. Hope AAC doesn't go that route.

    The only thing I noticed recently was I got asked for a catchpa when uploading an image last night. Never happened to me before.

    Same thing happened to me today when I tried to upload the image in post #4 above.

    Hopefully, the captchas will curb the spam bots we keep getting here.

    I just wish the Captcha program was challenging spambots instead of well established members with over 100 posts.
