Should I migrate the forum to NodeBB?

I did some experimental migrations before.. Everything worked great. I never went through with it because:

1) They didn't have a way to 'jump through threads', which they do now.
2) I didn't get anyone's opinions.

So, wondering if people here would have support/objections for moving to nodebb?

https://community.nodebb.org/


Still one of the most beast forums out there.. If not the most beast. I love it. I've been wanting to re-code our forum myself, but, it's just not realistic given my time/amount of work i'm doing etc. If we were to migrate, I'd have some experimental migrations up before we actually make the cut over. This would allow us to test it out etc. It's not an easy process so, if most people are are against it, it wouldn't be worth the effort. If everyone here thinks nodebb might be a great forum to switch to.. then we can start experimenting.

I could code plugins alot easier for nodebb also.. I don't enjoy mucking around in PHP; smf is php.

pC!

I'd go with yes, assuming you have enough experience not to blow it up if it fails.

Go for it! Worst case scenario = it fails, we re-migrate back in here and just possibly lose the migrating-period data, right?

Cool. Well, I would do a few experimental migrations first, so that we could use it 'non live' environment. Actual migration would take half a day perhaps, so the forum would be down at that time. So no data loss.
