    I'm quite happy with this software. It's familiar and comfortable and seems to work well for the people who use it. The search is useless though but as mentioned we can use Google.

    Logitech are highly unlikely to just to pull the plug on this (I think Mr Herger might have something to say if they consider that!). They would give notice. In which case, that would be the time to think about migration.

    Any chance that this forum will migrate to discourse?

    It makes perfect sense. But somebody would have to do it. And somebody
    would have to come up for the cost, hosting, maintenance. And that
    somebody would have to make sure he is/they are more likely to be around
    in a few years from now than the current "sponsor".

    Let's find some more solutions to some more problems that don't exist.

    If it ever comes to that, I'd be happy to pitch in. I've been a reseller for a major webhost since 2003, and have archived many of my favorite websites/brands that would otherwise be lost to time. I have plenty of web resources I could donate that I expect to keep for the long haul. Seriously, if you hear whispers that anything might happen, I would be happy to do a migration. (And I'd be happy to keep it to vBulletin if possible)

    Migration

    The main issues would be Notice and Ownership, to get hold of the Content before losing access to it. I am a moderator on a forum and we got shut down by our Host without notice, and had to fight to at least copy off our content. Then, we also needed to migrate from a "discus" platform that had been abandoned years ago (making it quite affordable to keep running, however). We're on XenForo, now. We still have images to find and reattach to topics. We're about 4 months into "migration." Last time I checked, we had over 6,000 members from around the world.
