IPB 3.0 is missing stuff like the Subscriber management, which we really do need as you'll know.. We won't be on 3.0 but we'll most likely be on 3.0.1 or later version.

The new IPB is good, but it still doesn't have most of our custom hacks which members have gotten used to and will miss if we just go and upgrade to Vanilla IPB and do a skin later.

Remember that we also didn't upgrade to 2.0 for months after it came out, because of the amount of work it requires to upgrade.

Those commenting about the slow DB, this is still be looked into and we've made significant improvements already, and from my understanding, 3.0 has been coded specifically to help large sites much more than 2.0 versions :D
