Given I have a more complicated conversion I was disappointed to hear IPS doesn't offer the service. The services directory doesn't have any reviews or much info to go on either.
(Edit: and by "complicated" it really isn't that bad - I did a test a while back - it just took a lot of time that I don't have, especially given I have to resolve any errors once the super long conversion is finally finished.)
Anyone do conversions or hire someone to do yours? I'm looking for recommendations. I have a large vBulletin forum that I am going to convert (1.4 million posts). I am looking for someone with experience so I can minimize downtime.
I have a large vBulletin 3.8 forum that I am going to convert to IPB. I can do this myself, but I want as little downtime as possible. I'm looking for someone with experience doing complicated conversions. I have about 1.4 million posts, over 40k members and 130k threads. I ran a test conversion a while back and it took 3 days to convert the data, but I think part of that was because it timed out when I left the computer. I contacted Invision's Enterprise Services and they gave me a list of contact emails so I really don't have much to go on. I contacted one and he is not taking on any extra work. I'd really appreciate personal recommendations if anyone has experience with this. Thanks. :)
