Is it possible to convert only certain things from a phpBB2 board to a phpBB3 board?

Ex:
- Specific threads
- Users and userprofiles (incl. post count?)

No

Convert it all and delete what you don't want.

Thanks for your reply KevC.

The only problem is that I/other helping me can't find a way to convert my forum, so I was hoping to at least convert some of the information "manually".. :|

phpBB3.0 and 3.1 both have built in converters from 2.0

Well, yes, but I am running the modified CH / Ptifo version of phpBB2 and I/Lumpy can't get the designated CH convertor to work..

Read in another thread that it might be possible to flatten the forum and then use the normal convertor, but don't know if it will work. I have a laaarge discussion board with 180k posts and 10.000 attachments :?
