    So I guess some of you already are having idea what you will use xenForo for will it be that family guy forum you always wanted or maybe a plugin community for xenForo?

    My first site I will be installing xenForo on is going to be http://xenAddicts.com/ I can then work on some mods and skins for my other planned sites and hopefully make these public to everyone else also :D.

    I will probably purchase a license and then create a test board to convert over my vB site. So initially it will be for test purposes only.

    Once it's ready and has the features I need then I'll be upgrading my motorsport site from phpbb: http://www.cliptheapex.com/forum/index.php

    The problem is at the moment live chat is heavily used during races so if I do switch to XF then I will need an alternative chat solution, possibly IRC?

    There's a project I've been holding onto for a year or so now. I was going to pull the trigger and use vBulletin, but after seeing the downward spiral early on I decided to hold off and have been waiting for a forum software to come along. IPB just wasn't going to cut it for me, and I was near-bent on making my own custom solution.

    As soon as I deem xenForo ready and ensure it meets my requirements, it's going to replace vBulletin 4.

    Would be nice if someone would come up with a live chat integration for XF ^^

    As soon as possible replace my vB 3.8.5
    vB4 is no option.

    That would obviously be the ideal solution.

    I can't imagine it would be too difficult having looked at the code used for the phpbb chat app'.

    This ^^^ although I except I am most likely going to have to wait until next year for the calendar and CMS.

    With an upcoming vision/roadmap, I think we might see some nice things and surprises :D

    It is possible that XF could replace one of my 3.8.x sites that uses a few mods:
    • PhotoPost Pro - over 5k pics
    • vbCMPS - some basic side modules and a few custom pages; could accomplish some of it through some creative template code but it's easier to choose what is displayed via cmps
    • re-write eBay Links - helps pay the bills
    A new project could be a possibility as well.

    Version 4 to 3 downgrade without losing any data is available, going from vb3 to XF1 will not be a problem.

    An IRC Chat plugin shouldn't be too hard to make, I've made simple ones for vBulletin - so we'll see what I come up with.

    I'll be grabbing a copy to use as a development site, and maybe if it allows a test site and a live site, maybe convert one of my forums over to it to see how it goes.
