I'm curious now that we're nearing a release date, has anyone shown xenForo to their user base? And what was the reception to it? Good? Bad? Ugly?
We're hoping for a similar dose of that magic for one site.. at one stage it was hugely active, if not a huge member base, going to try to breathe some life into the old girl. Should be interesting.I'll be a good test board because I'm putting it on an unused domain that has no ranking and I don't have a theme, content, niche, SEO (other than what's provided by XenForo), or really anything at all besides a small group of people who've stuck together for five years now. If XenForo can give us a jolt of life, then it's not just software, it's magic.
I wasn't planning on getting new software of any kind, let alone starting another forum - I was going to stick with 3.8 and let that forum die of natural causes.We're hoping for a similar dose of that magic for one site.. at one stage it was hugely active, if not a huge member base, going to try to breathe some life into the old girl.

That's how ours is going to be. The main Admins (we have subadmins too) will be going over the new forum on one of my hosts and we'll inspect it and drool over it. Then like kids coming home from school to a huge surprise, the members will come home to a brand-new forum!One day the users will log onto the site and there it'll be . The admins and other peeps who do bits for the site know and have had a look here though.
