I have an existing YaBB 2.4 forum that, because of its flat-file design, I want converted to a mainstream platform that uses a database. Examples of such a platform would be vBulletin, Simple Machines Forum, phpBB, IP Board, etc. I don't have a preference of platform at this point; the goal is simply to get the data out of YaBB because the number of files is unmanageable.

Some stats on the existing YaBB installation:
Total Members: 3013
Total Topics: 2184
Total Posts: 13285
Total Categories: 3
Total Boards: 10
Total Attachments: 10

My difficulty at this point is that no one seems to have current converters for YaBB. The converter for SMF is probably the closest to working, though it doesn't work perfectly. Some information on that attempt can be found here:

Entertaining all bids for this conversion.
