Any chance of a true separation of the axolotl forums from the rest, or perhaps a way to "shut off" or "mute" forums one is not interested in?

I don't think a full separation of the axolotl topics would go down well - we've talked about it a few times over the years and it wasn't greeted with enthusiasm by the majority, but I understand where you're coming from.

As for blocking out certain forums, I would have to look into that. What exactly do you have in mind?

Concerning the upgrade, I know it's been a few months but I'm actually somewhat glad we didn't go ahead because there was a major update to version 4 recently which would have created extra work. The upgrade is still on my to-do list for this year.

I think perhaps an additional heading and a minor edit in the "New Posts" Drop Down would do the trick.

By giving the axolotl forum it's own new post selection link and removing the axolotls from the advanced topic selection link, this allows faster access for axie lovers AND those of us that are less interested in axolotls do not have to sort through a long list of posts that tend to mask the other forums.

Thank you for the hard work John & all of the wonderful administrators! I have just visited for the first time in about 6 months and boy, was I fascinated by all of the changes. :) I very much appreciate having this forum to talk with other caudata-crazed people. :)

Did I mention they are about to release vBulletin 5? It'll be the sequel to vTrainwreck 4.
