Do you recommend that we import our current database first for their testing or should they test and play with a new clean board? My concern is that the test board will be private, only they will have access. And I don’t want e-mails going out to other members as they play or test the XenForo features. Likewise if a mod posts something to Facebook or Twitter, I don’t want that going out publicly yet either.
Obviously, I do plan on doing a test import of our vBulletin database (and more test imports if necessary). I just wanted to gleam from the experience of others in terms of the best ways to help a current moderating team make the switch. We’re planning on only having the test site up for a short amount of time before we go live.
