With xF in RC now, it looks like the time is fast approaching, when I need to seriously look at a wholesale move for my busy forum (c700,000 posts). Whilst I have been a member here since September 2010 and have installed and played with every iteration of my favorite forum software (who doesn't love xF?), I am no designer and am certainly not comfortable in handling a wholesale move of my existing vB3.8 forum to xF. The first thing we would like to do is to have a skin created that reflects our site (both existing and into the future). Once we have a working skin on our test site we will then be looking for a professional conversion service.....however....
.......Initially, I am looking for a site designer/coder with a proven track record in xF. Someone who is fully compliant with xF and can show me what they have already achieved. They must be highly communicative and willing to take onboard ideas BUT at the same time be able to tell me when something won't work. I already have a "shopping list" of design features and would be happy to discuss this work in PM with anyone fitting the above criteria.
If you're interested and can deliver, I look forward to hearing from you.
