We're not going to be able to help you move away from our platform. Contact vBulletin support instead.

AH! Well, the merge system's what you want then: http://docs.mybb.com/Merge_System.html

There is no official vB 4 module available right now but when I converted to MyBB over a year back (from vB 4.0.2 or something), the vB 3 module worked just fine. You can try it and see but obviously I'd advise trying it on a local install if you have such a thing Smile

The password encryption is the same for vBulletin3 + vBulletin4:
$password_hash = md5(md5($password_text) . $user_salt);

The merge system would work, if not it could take a little tweaking for the database fields etc. I know that the password code should work just fine Smile.

It's possible and not hard work Smile.

Let us know how the merge system went.
