Default Re: What I will miss about vBulletin...

A big problem is security concerns related to maintaining the bridge between two different platforms (so that vbulletin replies would appear below the diavlog). This site was already seriously hacked at least once.

The lack of programming support for the bridge was a constant headache. We hadn't been able to upgrade vBulletin or our CMS for years. One of the most important reasons to stay current on upgrades is security (this isn't news to you, I'm sure), and we also missed out on lots of new site features that we'd have liked to incorporate.
