    I first started as a co-admin on a phpBB board. We then went, and currently still run, a IPB board. Now I've made my own and I decided to use vB and see if I liked it. I can honestly say I like both IPB and vB equally, so far.

      I had a website running that didnt have a forum, but i needed something to get the users talking. I downloaded a nulled copy of vbulletin, played around with it a bit, decided i liked it so i came on here and bought it. Best thing i have ever done for my website

        What. They gave you free candy bars....! Errr that's all I wanted from vBulletin . I bought it beccause I was tired of the 'noob' software *cough* *cough* phpbb.

        I am more happy with vBulletin because of the security and features it has.

          I'd tried most of the other forum boards, like CGi ones and PHP boards. Been through most of them to see what I thought before buying vBulletin.

          I rate it the best above all the others boards out there.

            I was running phpbb for a while and used it to get myself into the mindset of running a forum. Once i'd had it a while, I thought of little things that i felt phpbb could use - but hadn't got available. Members to my site had contributed money voluntarily and so i figured it only fair to give them something back. A better forum was my option.

            I didn't really look around at others too much, so i did kind of jump in feet first, but i was impressed with the pre-sales department. After my purchase, i saw the support was equally good in the members area. A few months down the line i had a major issue going which required a ticket. I forget who exactly dealt with my ticket, but they responded within minutes and knew precisely what was what.
            My board was fixed within 'no time' and that convinced me i had made the right decision in my choice of software.

                I bought it for the sole purpose of ease. It is easy to customize, mod, and administrate. The customer support is amazing too.

                  I found vBulletin easier to use on other forums than phpbb and other software.

                  I bought it because it was worth my money.

                      All the forums that I had joined before were that other message board (the ugly one) but I never got a chance to joining and playing around with a vBulletin board until I got mine.

                      But that's the my main reason for buying vBulletin the default blue skin and the way the post look.

                      You can say I bought my vB for ME!

                      Why did you buy your vBulletin?
                      from the looks of ur website - looks like you've switched to phpbb

                                Because I tested a null on my server and an legal IPB on my server & I preferred vBulletin so I brought it.
