I am thinking about just jumping in and getting this upgrade done. It looks like there will be a few things missing once the transfer takes place, but it will be a huge improvement over what we've got now. I have been patching holes for these spammers and feel like my time would be better spent upgrading and then seeing how the spammers handle the new version. Long story short: I am thinking about shutting everything down later tonight. This *should* allow us to back up and running tomorrow morning with the new version. I can't guarantee a time, but I'll have to shut things down sometime between 10 pm and midnight Central Time. After the forum is switched back on in the morning, I will be applying customizations so the final "new & improved" version will be a work in progress.
