Went ahead and upgraded us to SMF 2.1, which is still in development but offers a lot more features. I'm still working out the kinks so some things might not be working properly at the moment - mainly with attachments and custom avatars.

A short list of the new features:
 - Ability to like posts
 - Notifications (like those on Facebook)
 - Built-in ability to include attachments in posts (we had this before but it was an addon, not an actual built-in feature
 - Mentions (ability to tag someone in a post basically)
 - Ability to embed YouTube videos in posts
 - New look and layout that makes the site work better on mobile devices

Also the gallery is currently unavailable while I work to import all the photos from the previous one :)

As always, let me know if you have any problems.

One last thing...

If the forum time is off for you, click your name at the top left, click "Look and Layout", then select the appropriate timezone from the list and save the settings.

Will look more into the avatar/attachments issue in the morning. If you uploaded an avatar it unfortunately isn't showing up right now.

Running into some issues with the gallery. I've filed a support request with the developer and will update everyone once I have those issues sorted out.

Gallery issues have been resolved. I'm working on importing photos from the old gallery.

Making good progress on the gallery. I've imported 461 photos so far, but I still have another 750 or so to go (my computer tells me there are 1214 files in the folder where I downloaded all the gallery images). I anticipate finishing sometime on Sunday.

Made a lot more progress on the gallery today. Just have one user album (with 144 pictures) left to import tomorrow. While there is a faster way to do it than how I'm currently importing things, I'm trying to do it the "best" way by keeping the titles and descriptions (where applicable).

I will write up instructions for the new gallery tomorrow after I finish importing things (and figure out the random image block), then will open it up to everyone :)

FYI, another site upgrade will be taking place in the coming days. This will fix several bugs and such (but won't be a huge change like the last one was).

Site upgrade has been completed. I still need to fix the width so things don't look quite as squished, but everything else should be working as expected :)

For those who like darker layouts, I've installed a new theme.

If you'd like to check it out:
Click your name in the upper left corner of the page
Click "Look and Layout"
Click "[change]" next to "Forum or Board Default" at the top of that page

From there scroll to the bottom and click one of the links under "Cleo1.0" - "[Preview Theme]" lets you see what the new theme looks like without changing it while "[Use Theme]" will change your desired theme to the new one.

Site has been upgraded to SMF 2.1 RC2. No new features, but quite a few bug fixes and other minor changes. I also upgraded the portal and gallery to the latest versions.
