I would have thought that the responsive nature of 3.1 would be a major issue in this discussion.
Responsive nature was and is a strong enticement to update/upgrade, as were the new functions. I'm fairly certain that most unmodified 3.0.x forums were upgrade quickly, but many modified forums wil have stayed with 3.0.x while waiting for extensions with the desired (or "needed") functionalities.
That certainly was the case with my forum and there was never any rush since most members (still) use PCs and not smartphones. That lack of urgency made me slowly transform most of my modifications for use in 3.1 (basically ithat was just messing around with custom coding) and it was only when EOL of 3.0 was announced that I shifted gear and started recoding everything to extensions. Then when 3.2 was released I had to shift to a higher gear because most of my extensions just weren't complete.
It's now 3 months ago that I had decided to end my forum days. But I started visiting phpBB again and noticed quite a few released extensions which did exactly what I wanted (but much better and cleaner coded) and then I decided to give it another go.
I was quite fond of 3.0 but once my forum is fully working on 3.2 I'm sure I'll be able to bury 3.0 without regrets.
