    Does anyone have an extra IPB license that they could lend me for a few days so I can import my XF board to IPB then to vB?

    I'm willing to part with a few bucks for your troubles.

    I'd probably only need it for one day but am saying 3 just to be safe.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I asked the same question at xenForo, but because this is "illegal," my thread was closed and moved.

    What I wanted to do was merge two XF databases so XF > IPB > XF would have to be the route.

    I dunno, it's what I've been told by Mr. Brogan before he left.

    He told me it's illegal on the part of IPB.

    ah, ya I could see that but if it wasn't accessible and was only used for an import, I don't see any real issues.

    Want to do it on my server?

    If you do I'll setup IPB with converters and you can run it on my server.

    Thank you that's an awesome offer. I'll send you a PM to to figure out what time is good for the both of us.

    I'm guessing he just got busy. Gotta have faith in people. :)

    I was thinking the same as well. I could go to AdminAddict[in the am] and send him a PM about this incase he forgot or something. He seems like a good guy to me, and having faith in others is the best.

    It was based on your whistle smiley use. Sounded like a fallout.

    It looks like I won't have to use IPB after all. @ragtek just posted a patch on vB.org that makes the converter work for me!

    I'm pumped that I'm going to be able to retain private messages and won't have to fork over $175 to IPB.

    I find that IPB is better if you want to create a hell of a lot of discussion topics. VBulletin is more for all the fun stuff and Xenforo is for that something inbetween IPB and vBulletin
