      You can already do that... encapsulating the links for video's in the video-tag will post the clip directly into your post. See the "What music are you listening to?"-thread in off-topic.

      However, it should be noted that it's murder on anyone with a slower or spotty internet connection -- and yes, those do still exist.

            Thanks for your questions and your excitement about the upgrade, everyone! Greg and I are beating down the gremlins right now (and let me tell you, that man is a Wizard. We're talking Gandalf the Gray facing down a Balrog).

            Time table: We are planning to roll out everything to you here next week.

            Avatars: I am attempting to preserve the 150x150 avatar standard, or perhaps nudge it up a bit to 160x160. Infuriatingly, vBulletin in its wisdom has opted to hard-code avatars to 64x64 (because it's 2003, apparently) and not offer their customers easy options to resize. So I am working on this problem over the weekend.

            Thread Titles: I know that when we add a new episode thread for a currently airing show into its folder, that gets linked across the forum (including the home page) in a way that obscures what show it's for. I'm thinking about ways I might improve the user experience here, but I hesitate to add the show title to every thread title. They're really meant for eyes that have navigated into that show's season folders. But I'm open to ideas!

            After the rollout we'll take your bug reports, change requests, questions, and fawning praise here:

                ok.. but thats several steps.. in other forums xenforo based. i can copy a pic or video link and paste it straight in without using the 'post a video" link

                its a smooth 'click,copy,paste'

                its ok, though,, just a question- thanks

                      Xenforo is a system Magi and I are both very familiar with. It is a very good system for running a forum.

                        Our new ETA for the forum upgrade is this coming Monday, February 1. The forum will show the "Offline" message during the update, which hopefully won't take long.

                        Welcome to vBulletin 5! Check this thread for more info, and to post questions, bugs, and requests for the new forum.

                          Can anyone tell me why my posts need to be approved suddenly?
                          I'd really like to know what I have done so I am on moderation
                          Have not gotten any warning or anything....

                            Hi there! You aren't on Mod.
                            All I can do is apologise profusely for the disruption,because it seems all posts are suddenly going via moderation...and get everyone's posts through as quickly as possible.

                            Already e-mailed Darren ,so hopefully this will stop being a problem asap once he and Greg can get in and take a look.
