    Yes, you can, but the editor is Markdown instead of BBcode in the new forums.

    Obviously I have no idea if that's how they intend to do it.

    Hopefully they did a trial import/convert run to know more or less how long the forum will be down. Since the forum has been down for weeks previously I wouldn't bet on it.

    If you have something here that you think you can't afford to lose I suggest you copy it now - just in case it gets lost.
    This forum will be frozen. It's not possible to transfer the old data through two different forum programs. We've already transferred/rewritten stickies that we felt were needed.

    I'm not going to argue about it other than to say almost anything is technically possible if the inclination is there.

    https://www.npmjs.com/package/nodebb...port-vbulletin
    https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import

    I can certainly understand why they may not want to be bothered.

    How long do they intend to keep the old forum available in a frozen state? This forum's url will change to something like forums.paladins.com--> old_forums.paladins.com and the new one take it's place or the new one has a new url?

    Sorry if I'm a pita and I appreciate you answering this stuff.
