The Lawyerist LAB has just gotten a major upgrade. It is now powered by Vanilla Forums, which should substantially improve the user experience and keep our community growing. Here are some of the new features:
- A fast mobile version.
- Optional social network integration (Google, Twitter, and Facebook).
- Respond to people with @username, just like on Twitter.
- User walls. You can post short messages to other users’ profiles, just like Facebook. (And because Vanilla has excellent spam filters, this shouldn’t be able to be misused.)
There’s much more, though. All in all, we think it’s a much nicer way to engage with the LAB, and we think you will like it, too!
For existing users, all your information has been carried over. You can sign in with your existing email address and password. New users can create an account on Vanilla or sign in with a Google, Twitter, Facebook, or OpenID account.
We hope you enjoy the new forum!
