    I'm seriously considering buying Xenforo, but I have questions:

    1) If I import from vb 3.8.2, what can I expect will be included? Will I retain all my categories, forums, user permissions, user groups, etc? What can I expect to lose?

    2) Is there a way to restrict viewing of the member list to users who are not logged on?

    3) Is there a way to add a sidebar to subsequent pages (that is, pages that are NOT the forum home page?

    4) Is there a way to add an announcement to the top of a category? What about stickies?

    5) Can I add a message in the log in box for people who are not yet registered? How?

    6) Any provision for auto-emails, for birthdays or inactive members?

    7) Can I delete "latest member" from forum statistics? How?

    8) Can I customize the email that goes out to those awaiting confirmation? How?

    9) Is there a way to ban certain words or phrases?

    I know this is a lot, but I appreciate the help.
