Need advice on archiving old forum.
So far everyone here at vanillaforums has been incredibly helpful in getting me all setup. So thank you!
Right now my new forum is pretty stable (with the exception of wordpress comments suddenly not working properly but w/e) and I need to figure out what to do with my old phpbb forum. When moving over to vanilla I decided to not import the content since the site had been running for 5-6 years and we had 8k+ users (not all active, obv) with tons of threads that had 3-800 pages. I felt a fresh start would be good and now I'm looking to setup some sort of archive on the old/new forum.
Any suggestions on what I should/could do? My new forum is on a new hosting plan so maybe I could just pull info from select threads and create an archive on the new forum? I'm trying to be proactive about it but I'll have my old hosting for about another year so in theory I could just leave it up as locked threads and have some sort of message saying that the user is viewing an old thread.
