    hi i`m thinking of converting 1 of my forums to xenforo but just got a few questions

    1. what gets converted from vbulletin 4 and what dont?

    2.is a paid subscriptions mod available so a member can pay a fee and get placed in another usergroup untill the membship expires ?

    3.is there a trader rating mod like vbulletin`s itrader (ebay like feedback rating)

    4.is there a garage mod like in this link http://www.fordmodified.co.uk/garage.html

    5. is there a advertisments mod where banner adds from ebay can be placed on parts of the site with a usergroup option so some usergroups dont see the adds

    think thats the main things i can think of at the min , any answers will be great

    thanks for that . i`ve been having a play with the demo and it does seem better than vb4 in a few ways tbh, so it may well be my choice when i upgrade from vb4 as vb5 just aint a option

    There are several spam related tools and features built in.
    It works very well.

    According to many reports, server use/load is lower.
