FYI, it's not 8000/day -- it's ~8000/week. It can be more if more
people stat using the reply via email feature.

In any case, if you are an SMF fan and have experience administering
it, propose it formally and volunteer to be the admin. Note that aside
from the plugins (e.g. thanks, maemo.org karma computation, rss to
post (used in council announcements), etc), theming skills is also
needed -- creating custom themes to have the forum look and behave
like the main site, not to mention mobile optimized themes are not
that easy to make. Maybe there are a lot of SMF fans that can help.
SMF is not my first choice though, if the free/open source forum route
is being considered.

Here's the thing, a vB license now is only about $250. Unless someone
can properly convert the data to a new platform and create a suitable
theme in 18 days (until Dec 31, 2012), I suggest to just go for vB,
hoping that a server will be ready soon, restore the database/resource
files, and it's up and running.

I haven't seen an announcement yet, but after Dec 31, TMO will most
probably be down until it gets moved to a new server. Perhaps this is
a good break for everyone from the forums. ;)

Happy Holidays.
