    You need this thing called Forumotion Converter, and it may or may not work.

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

    I don't believe you can take your database from forumotion.

    Data in your forum is unable to be changed, so you may not move your forum.

    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

    I think a few of us got fooled by this option in the beginning.

    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.
