Very bottom of the webpage:
Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.8.8 Beta 1

As for what's better in the newer versions... you'd have to look at the changelogs for the newer versions . I assume bug fixes and better compatibility and more plugins available.

Would that not just be because this is techist.com. I mean come on people the amount of Bugs, down time, and errors we have is abysmal.

Unfortunately the server is now out of my hands after the ownership change.

I would do something about it if I could.

Doesn't vbulletin have an internal updater? You might just need the permissions to click "update now" lol

Plus this is the version that all of Social Knowledge's forums use so that changes can be made across the board for all without having to stop and customize each and every one.
