Vertical Scope is updating all of their forums and there is MANY. This same post comes up on all of them. I suspect a "very small" percentage will leave permanently not wanting to adapt but most will just cut back for a time until they reach a comfort level with it. There are advantages to the new platform. But another thing I think forums in general are "very slowly" losing their luster, becoming a little worn, not as exciting as some other newer platforms. And of course some will always take the opportunity to become increasingly brazen anonymous keyboard bullies.
