Entire new forum?

You mean transfer your current posts & users.

Data in your forum is theirs, cannot be moved to anywhere else legally.

Yep you can't move any data from forumotion. I wanted to do it years back I have over 25k posts and was gutted I had to start a fresh

Sorry for necroposting, but it's totally possible to export a database from Forumotion. Of course Forumotion doesn't give its databases, but I currently have an IPB forum that was converted from Forumotion, and I couldn't be happier with it. The only lost data was polls, but that loss was nothing in comparison with what I gained in return. That said, I paid someone to help me as the script I had wasn't up-to-date and didn't work perfectly.
