Given our particular use case a self-hosted solution was not an option at this point, people would have to create entirely new accounts just for use on the forum website, which would have garnered its own set of problems and confusions. We also didn’t want to lose any content from the old forum so that people would be able to view older discussions, so a forum platform with an importer that was compatible with our old platform was necessary as well. That left us with few viable options. It is unfortunate that the legacy quoting hasn’t formatted correctly and there are some broken links, but overall the transition went smoothly and no posts or accounts were lost in transition, and as time allows we are continually working to improve the look and feel based on user feedback.
