    What will be cool is when AIBO or the Honda Robot have wireless and you can press a button in the AdminCP and have them bring you lunch.

    For only $69 more then vB, you too can have that board! lol I did notice a "lifetime" license though. Maybe vB could try that although renewels at $30yr (about the price of beer and pizza) is not bad.

    I'm not sure how much the renewal costs for upgrades are with UBB.Threads but it looks more expensive than vBulletin.

    Yea ive seen some cool new technolgys to, hopefully by the time I reach 30 robots will allow me to be a very lazy person, mabey I will never have to use my legs again

    Back on topic..

    I like vBulletin because of the control via the admin cp, every page can be tweaked, changed, or tottaly disabled. Managing usergroups/users is very easy, you can even asign users custom permissions, if you don't need to asign custom perms to anyone you can turn the ability off and save some server load.

    IMHO this is what makes vBulletin the best out there, the developers will add highly requested fetures to the board even if they are a bit server intensive, and they always include a switch to turn these options off.

    vBulletin was created out of the need for forum software that was very powerful while still begin able to scale well and be used on very busy and active boards. It is also writtin in a code that almost anyone can pick up, learn and run on their home computer (www.php.net).

    Thanks for so many responses! As Vile said, I am a bit biased so I don't mind similar responses. Because this is going to be a semi-formal proposal, more specific comparison points would be very helpful to me. Thanks!

    vBulletin has more features than UBB and does it at less server resources. Its name is recognized by people worldwide and is thought of to be the best message board software out there.

    Hope that helps!

    If it hasn't already been said, large userbase and community, and network sites such as vB.org vBT.com in case you ever need help

    vBulletin is awsome...
    (that basically tells you why you should get it )

    vBulletin is the forum software that is nearly everywhere..

    vBulletin is fast, easy, and a reliable forum software.

    vBulletin probably has the fastest and easiest installation or upgrade.

    You can install skins very easily. There are many vBulletin code hacks at vBulletin.org, and skins can be found in many places, vbulletintemplates.com for example. Basically, you have everything you need in the vBulletin network itself

    And there are some of us that us different forum software for different sites/clients. On a popular forum site, WHT (webhostingtalk.com), there are many threads there talking about forum proggies and most of them, many favour vB first, following by IPB, phpBB and one or two others. The site mentioned uses vB.

    Too me, the vB3 admin CP has the most customizations options I've even seen. Probably could wash the clothes with the right mods!

    My problem is I need a solid case for why they should make this switch beside "just because I like it more." I was about to start researching, when I realized the best solution would be to post on the official forums and let the users tell me why they thought it was better. Can you help me out?

    The best thing for you to do is to try out vB3,IPB,phpBB etc.... and see which one will suit you better.

    We have the same bias towards vBulletin as IPB users have to IPB.
