    I thought about that the day that I saw vb2 boards at the bottom of the mb. They are a step closer to being archived!

    I did try it quite a while ago. I thought "great" at the time. But If I remember right it works fine in IE but not Firefox.

If that feature was there in vB2 I think I would have stayed with it personally above all the other version. Even though it lacked many other features.

    I have 250 forums and 1/2 million posts and I never found any slowdown with vB3, 3.5 or 3.6.

    So it is simple - want vb with features but doesn't scale use Vb3 - want vb with less features but scales - use Vb2.

    This is why we won't upgrade, that and the licence.

    The only solution we have for these sites at present is vB2.

    vB4 will make vB2 redundant.
    Thanks Kier thats what i was looking for i cant wait unrill VB4 as it sounds like it could be very good.

    Which is why I have backported the best features from vB3 to vB2.

    Get the best of both worlds

    ...and because it's lacking features, it doesn't need to do many things like vB3.

    Also, WE WANT vB4!

    I've benchmarked vB2 with vB3 on our forums, and vB2 is a clear winner where performance is concerned. The benchmark was done on the main areas of the forums (main page, forumdisplay and showthread) and vB2 beat vB3 on hits per second every time.

    Which is when I suppose you will then archive vBulletin 2.x?
