I've been contemplating a move to xenforo for years now and always held off because my community is largely made up of posters who hate change.
MattW helped me every step of the way with everything. Let me say that he has been a total blessing. I'm even guessing that this little testimonial will garner me a massive discount on his fees (if he even decides to charge me at all)! He did everything, including server setup and migration.
napy8gen did the import of our vBulletin style and it's perfect. Couldn't be happier!
My biggest concerns were:
a.) member hating the change and revolting
b.) overall revenue plummeting
c.) the import on 6.2M posts being a nightmare
On a scale of 1-to-10, 1 being disastrous and 10 being best-case scenario, my experience has been a 10+.
On every level, I'm BLOWN AWAY.
Members who've been on the site for over 5 years and I assumed would respond negatively really like it.
I did the import myself with the built-in importer and it went flawlessly (took about 6 hrs to do 6.2M posts).
New features and addons are mindblowingly good.
Let me put this in perspective: We just traded our 1984 Ford in for a 2015 Ferrari.
