    I think he used to own Ikonboard, but when they sold Ikonboard to somebody else. He didn't like the way Ikonboard was heading and left to setup IPB on his own. Leaving the others at Ikonboard. Or something along them lines.

    I read an interview carried out by Bigboards with him

    From what I can remember, and this may not be accuraute, but IPB was a PHP version based from the original CGI/Perl Ikonboard a few years ago.

    Agreed! Who's up for some dial-up quake 3!? I hope you got the $100+ keyboard and mouse combo!

    As pointed out, different boards may take different ideas from each other which they see and like (its called progress). It's give and take all round really. And all because one board might use a certain feature first, doesn't make it uneak to them to use forever only.

    Otherwise you could argue, the first BB Board ever created was copied by every other BBBoard for sale now in that sence if you look at it like that. And I know vB and IPB were not the first.

    I meant between IPB and vB.

    It is a competative market (thankfully) and we write our own source code. Who has thought up the first of an option or feature is always hard to trace as the research & development files are not public.

    I really do not think it matters to spend time on this .. if you require a forum software and certain features ....... pick the board that you think is best.

    You'll come to the natrual conclusion this will be vBulletin

    Not to mention that they all now have power-steering, but moving toward eletrically assisted steering.

    I believe it's called evolution and natural product development - as defined by and demanded by users etc. These two products are at the top of the performance and functionality tree for available products at our budgets.

    OK, forgive me for a little sarcasm, but it illustrates the point yeah?

    EZ Board was. . <42 EZ Board's inline moderation. (I could be wrong though. But I still don't think phpBB has it.)


    That was the major feature I missed when switching to vBulletin. That was the only thing though. .

    That's because IPS has their board set to delete older thread, unlike vB, which saves every thread.

    Anyways, some things vB had first, and some things IPB had first. For example, vB had WYSIWYG text editors before IPB, but IPB had inline moderation before vB. At the end of the day, all that matters is that each product gets better because of the other.
