I only have one thing to say ...
What is deferent on the new BV then? it looks the same to me. Am I missing something?
The Black Vault has gone through alot of changes over the past 13 yearts, partly to accomodate the changing codes through the years. Other changes were made to accomodate new applets such as chat, radio, the enclyopedia project, plus other features John wanted to instill into the BV. The BV is an extended website with extended products and services to its membership.
Personally, I liked the very first version it seemed a heck of alot more easier to navigate
