We hired Slavik to move our 60+ million post forum http://www.christianforums.com from vBulletin 3.7 to the latest XenForo. There was no other option for us due to the technical background Slavik has and the knowledge of the ends and outs of XenForo that he has as well.

Every problem we encountered was met with a solution and his communication was perfect. Would highly recommend him for anyone converting over from vBulletin who has a decent sized forum.

Thank you for the review Brent, it was a pleasure to work with you and its great to have such a huge forum on XenForo!

@Slavik imported our large vbulletin 3.8 forum with nearly 6 million posts to xenforo in less than a day. The move was straight forward and a lot less complicated than I thought it would be. He even imported all our photo post photos in to xenforo, so we didn't have to lose anything from our old vbulletin forum. I would highly recommend his services to anyone thinking about this.
Thank you for the great review :)

We used Slavik as a consultant on our big board import, he helped us solve some tricky problems. Particularly, he helped get all of our vbulletin 4.2.x blogs imported into Xenforo as threads, which would have been a big loss of content without his assistance.
Happy to help! Welcome to XenForo :)

Hi all,
Faced with the dilema of having a couple of medium sized forums on an end-of-life, increasingly creaky, niche (unheard off?) FusionBB platform I eventually decided XF was the place for them to be.

Slavik was able to transfer all our members, passwords, posts & conversations from our biggest forum over for us. 6000 member accounts & 305000 posts. All done very quickly. It was a great relief to see all our members & posts on the new forum! I'll be using Slavik's service again in a few months for the 2nd move.

Thanks Slavik!

Slavik did a great job for us. Our board had a number of complications that didn't make it a straight-forward job, but we got it all figured out.

Thanks, Slavik!

I am so glad I followed everyone else's reviews here and had Slavik do my migration. Couldn't have asked for a smoother transition. Responsiveness is key when doing such a big move and Slavik made himself available to answer questions pre-and post migration. I chose to do a test migration before a full migration and I would suggest it. It gave me a chance to check for any issues gave my admins/moderators a week to test XF so they weren't completely blind sided on launch. The test migration also gave us a chance to program any theme/template modifications that could then be quickly imported to the new site. Thanks @Slavik . total pro.

Slavik moved my old VB 3.8 site over to Xenforo recently and I have to say it was a joy to work with him. The site had about a million posts on it so I wanted to limit any downtime. He did a test migrate for me so I had a few days to play around with it while my VB site was still running. Slavik was very easy to deal with and did a super job and we had no issues at all. Its early days yet but if you are thinking of moving from VB I would suggest you go for it, and of curse if you need help @Slavik is the man for the job.

Slavik converted my VB 3.8.9 to XF 1.5.1 in almost no time and helped to retain a lot of valuable information. One of my best software-switching experience here.

Slavik helped us move our vb4 site (5mil posts) to XenForo. I was completely new to XenForo when I first contacted him, and he was very patient about answering my many questions. I'm sure we've been one of the more high-maintenance migrations he's had to do, but he really came through for us. I can't even imagine trying to handle it all myself! I highly recommend Slavik to anyone who needs help moving to XenForo. His pricing is reasonable and his work is absolutely professional.

I can give Slavik my highest recommendation for migrating your forums. He was professional, accommodating, and incredibly knowledgable. He migrated our 2 million post vbulletin board with no trouble at all, and that included a ton of special requests, like redirecting our old archive pages to the standard XF pages, and the migration of our attachments and galleries. He is the best.

Another vote of extreme confidence in the talents of Slavik. We had a situation moving vB to XF and the former website owner did not disconnect VBseo and caused a huge problem with redirects. With calm, Slavik identified the problem and wrote custom redirects all for a very happy ending. We provide the highest recommendation to Slavik.

I just want to reiterate how incredible of a developer Slavik is. I gave him plenty of praise above, but he just solved a really tricky problem in no time flat. If you are migrating your board, YOU MUST HIRE SLAVIK. He is amazing.

@Slavik was asked if he'd move our MyBB forum to XenForo. Arrangements were made via PC and the deed was done.
The process was quick for me, but Slavik probably thought it was slow, due to some of my daft questions :)

Everything went as planned and I would not hesitate to put Slavik's name forward to help you move your forum over to this excellent forum software. You won't be disappointed (y)

So Slavik, thank you for all your hard work and also your patience with this old fart. Your price was too low! :notworthy:

I recently hired Slavik to migrate a forum from VB3.8 to XF1.4.11 and he did a great job (y)
I was most impressed by his handling of the gallery import. With vB3.8 we used both their official album product and vbGallery from Photopost. Slavik combined them both into XFMG and helped to setup the proper redirects.
