I appreciated your input Heather, I am sorry if it came across as if I didn't, I'm kinda a literal black and white sort of person and it get me into trouble at times.
I think you may be as well

@Ken_Shea Apart from having a new code base (ish) which is secure and up to date, Phoenix is also really easy to upgrade as long as no core files have been touched and messed with. Everything is modular. Adding some addons is as simple as upload the files to the correct places, go to admin and install and configure. Along with the fact that Phoenix is suitable for smaller devices as its bootstrap based it will keep the great gods at google, and other search engines happy as its mobile friendly and will show the site in mobile searches. Many of my customers use a smaller device and say the site is good, and that's without upgrading to Phoenix.
Suppport on these forums is getting less and less for the older versions. Developers just are not wasting time on early versions, and who can blame them, so getting any help may be harder in the future.
Your website is the gateway to your business and if you decide to invest in that gateway its entirely up to you. If you are happy with what you have then leave it as is. I also hate it when the fraternity say that you must upgrade, or you should upgrade. Its up to you as only you know your business and customers.
