Are there any aspects of XF that you have done your best to incorporate into your existing site as a precursor to eventual conversion?
(Sort of inspired by what AVForums are doing but on a lesser scale).
Tonight I've done this:
Avatars in the threadbits. Query count is a bit high but I wanted to make it work - may not leave it though if it loads the server too much. Seems ok at the moment. Can't also ditch the thread statusicons as there's no way to identify if you've posted in the thread (I'm nowhere near clever enough to do the mini-avatar thing like on XF). So it might look cluttered to some.
Other stuff has been there a bit longer....eg my breadcrumb bar looks vaguely familiar. As do the page titles. I'm sure there's other XF-influenced stuff there too.
Anybody else's non-XF sites gradually turning into an homage to XenForo?
