    I was curious as to what the v in vBulletin stood for. Does it stand for virtual, as in Virtual Bulletin Board?

    It doesn't stand for anything, technically, though there's many things that you could say it stood for (such as the v in VB World).

      It's also rumoured to be chosen because it was the next letter in the alphabet...as vBulletin 1.0 was a PHP port of UBB, and hence became vB

          But you have to admit, most rumours are somewhat logical

                  It's owned by Richard Branson, so it's actually Virgin Bulletin, or vBulletin for short.

                        Probaly the closest to begin correct without going over the actual price.

                          4 years and then some and I'm finally getting educated. When all this time I've been thinking the "v" was for "victory" over the other famous brand that for so long remained flat file based.
