Whats about the other personal features f.e. pm, pager, buddy list. Will these all stay? The saved pm and pager messages, will they be still there.
We're going to import over everything from this board.
Difficult for some users is to see what is already built into vbulletin and what is hacks.
built in are a lot of features like private messaging, buddy lists, thread subscriptions.
the pager is a hack that doesnt exist yet for the new version but should be out soon. if it is out then we can hopefully include also the old pager messages.
all in all i can say is that no data gets lost but data might not be accessable anymore.
e.g. if a new pager comes later than when we upgrade the boards but has the ability to import old pager messages they might get imported. if we have to write the script for importing ourselves (if possible) then it is surely not decided yet when and how.
so hacks arent always easy (or even possible) to import and wont necessarily get imported.
important are features like the news archives, tracker and a general layout/structure/howto of how to do things publishing wise.
