Yeah, vB3 also works fine (although having a better mobile experience for the forum might decrease the community shrinking a bit, but then more mobile users might also mean less of the more structured conversations and proper punctuation that Lupin pointed out ;-) ). And another thing that worries me a bit is that maybe a disgruntled (e.g. banned) member could exploit any known weaknesses in vB3 to wreak havoc, but maybe I'm being paranoid there.

For the main site everything except the forum looks like static content that doesn't require authorization, so a less daunting approach to upgrading/switching forum software might be to first replace them with HTML only, then change the forum software and migrate accounts, and then to step by step bring the static pages up to date.
