    I'm assuming there's a tool to take an existing set of threads/forums and convert them from phpBB into vBulletin :dunno:

    Vbulletin has scripts available to do the conversion. Just need to give it the database information it asks for.

    say someone had a phpBB forum and wanted to upgrade to vBulletin, is that something easy to do for someone of average computer skills, or would it be easier for them to hire someone to:

    - convert the old forum to vBulletin
    - add captcha
    - set up the new forum

    if you were to hire someone to do this, what would a fair price be?

    (a guy that i work freelance for sometimes wants to know)

    There's a script in the vbulletin client area for this.

    said person should backup everything, then attempt to do it on their own using the tools/scripts already available to do this.

    then, if they fail, get someone who knows what they're doing

    You can easily do it yourself... the instructions are quite simple.
