Like everyone here, we have been watching xF develop through its stages and are also looking forward to the final 1.0.0 release tomorrow. We have also been running a test site since October and it's clear that our team are completely sold on the software.
Unfortunately, like most big-board owners, we have gathered up certain mods (vB) over the years and it will be difficult, of not impossible for us to simply drop them as part of any conversion process. This means that we won't be jumping on-board the xF "live site" train, when it sets off tomorrow - we'll be watching from the platform, waiting patiently for some of the important (to us) "hacks" or "products" to be developed.
We're not looking for miracles, in fact we really don't have a very long list of requirements at all (please forgive me if some of these are available already):
- A visible donation system
- Thread Prefixes (Vital)
- Moderating stats (not compulsory)
- DP Position ads
- Multiple account detection and prevention
- A definitive solution for our existing vBseo links, so as not to lose any SERPS juice
We're as excited about the prospect of running xF as you are, it's just that it seems we'll have to temper our enthusiasm for a bit longer and keep an eye on how things develop
