Have you ever thought about moving away from VBul?
I know the theme stuff may be an issue and may deter you away from moving to a new forum software.

Big no no.It would break everything.Threads,posts,members.Not all forum softwares are compliant with each other.

vBulletin is nice it just needs an update because this version is too old.vBulletin newer versions have many great new features and still this same theme.

That means all the topics, and all the work people put in here on forums will be gone.

You do realize a lot of forum software has the ability to transfer data from vB's table structure to their table structure, right?

The current SA-MP forums were converted from SMF in 2010 (?). I think it was PHPBB before SMF too, so there'd be no data loss.

You could get a demo vBulletin site and try it out, see if it would fit your needs and decide from there. Then you could install a test version somewhere and work on the theme without any downtime of this forum, well, not until you do the upgrade.

A forum of this size would probably have some hassle attached to an upgrade though. It would probably be worth it in the long run though!

Sure, but most (if not all) of the known ones can transfer between forum software.

Something tells me this forum just wouldn't 'feel' right if it was upgraded to vB 5

Would it be worth, at the very least, updating to 3.8.11 (the latest and last edition of vB 3.8.X) for any security patches that have been done since 3.8.6?
