Two options for upgrades:

 

https://xenforo.com/community/

 

https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/

 

Try them out on both desktop and mobile.  I'll take a poll in a few days when I better understand the implications of both.

Whichever one hotlinks with imgur easily with embeded copy paste links. That would make it easier to post media from mobile I think, I dunno. Im too tired to look at this now.

Quick click on both the first one responds like I prefer on mobile where landscape mode shows more details on latest replies in a thread, etc. more common to some other forums.

I vote for the Xenforo. It's used on another forum I frequent and it's mobile skin is very user friendly. 

 

Let us know the cost, I'm in for helping.

Whichever is fine. Bous points if either will automatically ban Ghonorea Toe during the migration.

Given that it's 5-0 Xenforo at this point, these are all examples of Xenforo sites.  Simon says Xenforo is the dominant player in the forum market these days.

Are they equally easy for you to implement?

Cost etc?

FWIW, they look pretty much the same to me.
