    I wasn't asking the question, I was merely explaining the question as I interpreted it .

    Wow I'm confused, I think I need a tug to let of some steam :O

    I don't see any problems asking XFire to use vBulletin, if anything I;m doing them a favor!

    I talk to all the developers and workers of XFire about it, all I get it 'We'll look into it'.

    XFire is a gaming messenger what lets you talk to your friends whilst playing games. I've used this service since 2004, they were very small back then, but not now. They get a new registration every 1 to 60 seconds. Everytime you reafresh the page, they have a new user. I think they should run on vBulletin instead of phpbb. The whole user database is huge.

    The website is running of php-nuke, (they modded it). I talk to all the developers and workers of XFire about it, all I get it 'We'll look into it'.

    XFire has just recently got sold to MTV, Unicom (or whatever the company name is), if I was them, I'd make a brand new website and move the forums over to vBulletin.

    What do you think?
    Should you not be telling them this?

    vBulletin has it's fair share of vulnerabilities that have been patched just like on phpBB. Like I said, different strokes for different folks.

    When you go to PHPBB's support forums, everyone there are noobs, the dev's don't help you, the users do. Some just make random replys to your post to boost their post count up

    PHPBB is bad, i am able to gain root access in a number of random forums all due to outdated code, and its not hard to find them with simple google search references.
