Is good idea use HTML 5 declaration instead of HTML Transitional?

What problem can I have in the forum? using HTML 5 declaration


<!DOCTYPE html>

HTML Transitional

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

Best regards
I don't think so, read this

You should not just change it, unless you are using a complete template set that conforms to HTML 5 standards.

If you change the doctype of the default template to HTML 5 and do nothing else your validation breaks.
I can't say whether it is good or bad for a MyBB forum !

let me add a few references which might be helpful
