Just to add my 2p at this early stage - would be great to allow integration with all those "old" systems out there. I have upwards of a million posts in like an archive forum which in turn was taken from an RGP newsgroup. Think of it as a backup and an attempt to drag a bunch of people from the old system to the new age of Forums (well - newer age). The "add on" to Vb that i'm running still goes off and updates from existing usenet (google) groups (text only), and the ability to carry on doing this would be the deal breaker for me to be honest.
Just wondering if something like this would be easy to implement, or would be considered.
Many thanks and here's to the new breed of what forum software should be!
