v7 is the 7th version of SBC design, and was a huge change for the site. This version was the move to the brand new vBulletin site, moving off of forumotion after 6 versions It was launched August 29th, 2011. It would have been launched 3 days earlier, but things came up. Good Noodles could see some sneak peeks of it in Roger's Lightbulb. Also, you could have participated in the Golden Ticket Contest to get early access to v7.

v7 was full of bugs, thanks to vBulletin. Eventually, in March of 2012, SBC left vBulletin because of server issues. It was then stuck with phpBB3 for a few months, and then upgraded to IPB on June 15th, 2012.

New Features in Launch (v7) Edit

  • Customizable Profiles
  • Social Groups

As time went on, more features were added. v7.0.1 launched on October 8th, 2011, fixing some past bugs, and adding new things such as:

  • New Main Site
  • Today's Top Posters
  • Avatar in header
  • Return of Doubloons
  • Spy

Over time, more things were added, such as VB Experience and the Glove World Store Generator, which were some of the best received features since forumotion. Due to VB being shut down now, some of these features are no more. However, it is possible they can return on IPB.
