  • Greetings! A few Questions Please

    Hello!

    We are greatly interested in switching from our phpBB to your vBulletin. I have a few questions however about your forums.

    1. We currently have a database of over 900,000 players and many posts throughout our 3 games. Would we be able to transfer all of our users ID's and passwords to vBulletin?

    2. Since we have 3 games and hence requires 3 different forums. Would it be 3 seperate membership fees or 1 membership fee?
    **Our database for our forums are all the same general database for our website. So once you register on our main website (www.netgame.com) for any of our games. It automatically registers you for all 3 forums. Would this be a problem?

    3. What type of anti - spam filters does vBulletin offer?

    Thats about all that I can think of for now. Any help or info on this would help us greatly in making or decision on purchasing your services. Thank you and have a great day!

    1. Yes, we have an import script for phpBB. You can read about it here:

    2. Three forums on one site, or three separate sites with forums? The latter would require three licenses.

    3. See this:

        If they are all the same URL (i.e., http://www.vbulletin.com/forum) then that only requires one license.

          Since you have 3 separate forums with different topics/posts, you'll need 3 licenses of vBulletin. Purchased at the same time, this is $444.

          You'll also need to make extensive code modifications so that registration on one forum grants you access to all 3 forums.
