Hi,

as in the FAQ it is written that old forum sites will be kept or not according the forum owners decision, I guess you will have a problem about "cross forum links".
If the owner decide to not maintain his forum, you will encounter inconsistance as this kind of link will not work anymore.
I don't know how you could handle that, I guess you will need to ask to vBulletin guys.

Mimil,

We have taken care to rewrite many of the cross-post URLs when we imported the forum data. We estimate we have rewritten close to 95% of the cross post links in these forums. Some will get missed , and yes, they will be broken links. The search capabilities within the new forums paired with the context of the message should help the author relink that information.

kind regards,
Gretchen
