Pre Sales Question

#1
I know their is a converter for vBulletin 3.6 | vBulletin 3.7/3.8 | vBulletin 4.x

Is there a migration tool for VB5 in the works? I recently took over a community that is running VB5 and I can't stand it. It's most broken forum suite I have ever laid eye's on.

I know IPB has a migration tools but i'd prefer to go with xenForo over IPB.

Sometimes pay for a third party service to convert from vb5 to xf will be cheaper than buy an IPB licence

IPS only has a working converter for 3.4. One of the main reasons I am now on Xenforo.

Notice he said "working".. I believe there has been some issues with the vBulletin converters - especially for converting to the 4.x line.
Correct, the only converter that works is the converter for the 3.4 line. The 4.1 converter is non-functioning. My site was 4.1. There is no working converter to import anything into 4.1. And Yet, Xenforo has a converter to import a 4.1 IPS forum into XF.
