An old Snitz 2000 forum only needs to be Read Only. It seems that a converter is only available to phpBB2, not 3.1 and a clean version 2 would be required.
Could a converter be used on 3.1 if only Read Only is required or is there some fundamental difference between 2 and 3.1 that would make Read Only impossible?
A new 3.1 forum has already taken posts, so is there any way that an old Snitz 2000 forum could be Read Only and merged with 3.1? If new posts were stored from 3.1 and added back after Snitz had been converted, would forum, topic and post IDs be duplicated?
Once you have converted it to version 2 you can upgrade it to 3.0.x and then 3.1.x. It is no problem to make it read only, using permissions. Forget about merging your new 3.1.x material. It is very difficult to impossible.

So if I backup database from a newish phpBB3 forum, start again with 2.0, convert Snitz into it, upgrade to 3.1, when I restore the database of my old 3.1 forum will there be a conflict between ex-Snitz user ID1, forum ID 1, topic ID 1, post ID1 etc with those from the database backup?

Whilst it is not impossible to merge two phpBB databases it is complex and it would take time to create a script to merge them
