Revert to vbulletin

Recommended Posts

Can runelocus switch back to vbulletin? I notice a lot of posts are screwed up from the ipb switch. The URL tags, spoilers etc are all screwed up especially for older useful posts/releases.

 

if not has the team thought about fixing it?

I honestly have no idea how to solve those posts that are still broken. On the other hand, switching back to vBulletin just to fix those old 3+ year old posts is a terrible idea haha. Easier said than done, it'll cause trouble.

A bot that "edits" all posts will trigger the conversion. However images etc with [ img ] will not be converted I think. Who knows. A better way would be to parse the database entries and salvage whatever we can.

Would it be to tiresome to pick out useful posts that are still relevant and just manually edit them? Even just the top 5% of the most popular posts would probably be very useful.
