Are people without their avatar pictures banned?
I just logged in and noticed that many active members don't have their avatar pictures anymore, but they also don't have a "banned" signed under their name. I'm confused. Are these people banned or I missed the latest trend to take out your avatar pics?

This is what's happening: In vBulletin, you can set it up so that when people are put into a "troll" category, they are banned, but you don't see that they're banned. Their pictures get removed. They can barely use the forum, but they're not banned. This is to discourage trolls.
It's basically a way to ban people, without making it seem like they are banned. It's good against trolls.

What day and time exactly are you shutting down the forum? Some people may be on vacation and when they get back all their private messages, etc will not be accessable - so if we could all have a definite date it would really be helpful.
Also I, and others have started lots of informative threads (esp angelpsychic with his mbo thread), are you planning on archiving all these threads on the forum so people can still puruse the threads?
Thanks steve for such a great forum, I just joined in July and I wil truly miss the lively discussions and debates and the commaderie and friends I made on this forum.
