Ok. It's not a forum issue. These are people that have had their passwords compromised by data leaks. Anyone can spoof the source of an email.
Check this site out for how. Will also tell you if your information has been stolen
Passwords for the forum are rainbow...
I had a powerspark on mine. The first one was too tight to fit the oil pump shaft. Life isn't as long as it should be. I had to replace again about 5 years later... Kept ejecting rotor arms and mashing the cap.
Over the last month or 2 i've listened to a great number of opinions about what we should do and the right way to handle this. I'm aware that we have all put a lot of our lives into the forum, so I've been thinking quite hard about what we should do.

@chrisw I'd expect informing all email logins to the forum with a couple of weeks notice would give people time to login and change them. Gdpr wasn't a thing when I took over but data protection was. The rules are similar just enforced.

It isn't a huge overhead. Really the only reason I want to pass it on at all is because I no longer have a car...
Probably not as much as you'd think. It's not too hard once it's set up. It's the initial bit that's difficult and I'd help with that. Xenforo is simpler than these other environments to look after. The upgrades and plugins so far have just worked (touch wood).
Can I ask why you want to move off xenforo? It's probably the best platform out there for hosting a forum, and it's on a dedicated server so it's quick. The database and web folders for this forum are huge. It goes back to around 2003 iirc.
