Will add my thanks for the info. I'm especially excited for the photo hosting and mobile site features.

I can take a stab at answering your questions, palindrome, as I used to own a board that transitioned from vbulletin to xenforo. There is a data migration tool, so when done properly, the new forum software will retain the existing database -- all threads, user accounts, etc. Although it's possible that the current database is too corrupt for such an easy migration, I suspect the plan would be to bring the old data in.
