    I have already done it to the 7 websites that I own. Anyone not upgrading is just going to stay stuck with with they have until they upgrade.

    I mean, I loved XF1, but even I would know that it had some areas that needed to be upgraded. I upgraded without hesitation. I ran some tests, but other than that, I was really not hesitant.

    I even upgraded my backend from MySQL 5.2 to 5.7. Then PHP? 5.4 all the way up to 7.2. :D

    On top of that, I grabbed a nice custom skin from Pixel freakin' Exit! :)

    I've recommended both XF1 and XF2 to clients, depending on their situation. Generally, I recommend XF2, but in a few cases clients had very specific needs covered by a premium XF1 add-on which doesn't yet exist for XF2.

    I just made the switch this week. The site looks and acts more or less the same, very minor (IMO) differences but of course the ZOMGWTFBBQ YOU CHANGED IT I HATE YOU started right off the bat. The only thing holding me back before was an adequate replacement for a certain dev's addons that aren't being updated for 2.x. Found reasonable facsimiles and its all good. mostly.

    Unless another version adds needed functionality, I don't find any compelling reason to fix what isn't broken and not worth the risk of a premature headache. I don't plan on making any switches until every essential add-on I have has been tested and confirmed to work with minimal fail.

    I'm doing a test run of 2.09 now to see how it all works. Not touching my original until I figure things out.

    That's really Sad. I've bought a number of Arty's themes over the years and he consistently released some of the most beautiful XenForo themes available.

    I'm glad to hear it sounds like he'll still be working on his Iconify project that will benefit forums though. His icon integration with the themes was one of the best features of his recent releases, being able to quickly and easily insert well designed icons to replace the node images was a pretty sweet feature.

    His new Iconfiy project does seem pretty darn cool though, and quite a big undertaking!

    A stable XF 2.1 in the new year will make the style makers busy.

    That is clearly a loss to XenForo.

    Sorry, but it had to be done. Its not fair for customer to keep promising that I'll update styles when there is no end in sight for Iconify work.

    Thanks :)

    Good news is I'm currently working on integrating Iconify to XenForo, so good old icon picker, but in much much improved format will be available to all style designers and add-on coders. Hopefully you'll see it soon in many styles.

    Anyway, this belongs to different topic. I'll make one.

    I have one forum with XF1 and another with XF2. lol I've modded my 1.x forum so much that it would be impossible to upgrade. Plus I'm much more familiar with 1's template system. :)

    ArtyArty simply put I've been a fan since you first got started. More than 10 years is right, I used your original ColorizeIt system with Simplicity and others. You are an original, an innovator, and a rare talent in not only forums but on the web as a whole. You were one whose work inspired me to get into development and interface design and product.

    Blah blah blah super fan aside, I cannot wait to see what you do next. Your icon system is simply amazing and one I intend to use for all my products.

    I bought UI.X license a few days ago, TH guys did great job with UI.X but Arty's perspective is different he is truly an artist who combine Art and Code

    I respect your decision and thank you very much for your years of support
    I wish you good luck with the Iconify project :tup:

    I'd like to upgrade my site to XF 2.1, but I can't right now, because the content ratings add-on is incompatible and I don't want to lose data :(

    Yeah, I upgraded without waiting and now I've had to revert back to stone age 'Likes' only until an update from Xon comes out. It's been bloody awful. How am I supposed to express myself without reactions?! By commenting?! Pffftt....:rolleyes:

    Do you know if you upgrade with disabling it first if the rating types would be maintained as reaction types on 2.1? I'm thinking about just upgrading.

    No idea. I've got a couple of errors in my ACP, but I've been too embarrassed to post them in the Content Ratings thread because I wasn't supposed to upgrade yet. :whistle:

    Been holding out until the update comes before I pester him.
