    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if there is an introduction thread around here but wanted to say hello. I've been a member here for quite some time and see a few familiar faces. Of course, my name is Dan. I'm a 27 year old webmaster from New York. Old school vBulletin admin here I've been running vB on my sites since 3.5. vB 4 is a bloated crap shoot hence my move to XF.

    Yesterday, I bought my first XF license and ran a test install. It's so slick I may actually enjoy administrative tasks now. :) I'm running a test import from my primary vBulletin 4 board as I write. My plan is to convert to my DJ board to XF by March.

    Since I'm a noob you'll likely see some DUH! questions from me in the near future but so far I feel very at home in XF's admin CP. So far, XF's documentation is very through and I'm a happy customer.

    Eventually I'd like to buy a couple more XF licenses for use on upcoming boards that are currently running vB 3.8.

    Looking forward to getting to know everyone and learning as much as possible about XF.

    Hi Dan, familiar name that i've seen at various forums over the past few years. Im in the same boat as you, just installed a test xenforo and am now planning the huge task of moving my site over....don't see it happening for a good 6 months though as I have 2 major features that xenforo cant accomplish for me unfortunately!

    Hi and welcome Dan. You'll find that people here are very helpful, so don't hesigtate to ask :)

    We're all competing with Brogan to see who can beat him by replying before he does, so not only will your questions get answered, but they'll be answered fast, too :D

    It's actually amazing. Kier and Mike made him really think he's human.

    Gentlemen please!

    Sir Knight Brogan is the essence of humanity at its best.
    Generous, kindly, loyal, unstinting, yet firm and protective against abuses.
    A Guardian and Counsellor beyond peer.

    It's the firmness .. and that chin, and that secret hint of a smile at the corners of the mouth .... so kind, oh so kind .... such a perfect gentleman.
