    Worst thing? I've yet to reach that yet. As far as vBulletin is concerned vB4 has, for the most part, been a positive experience both to my community and to myself.
    I'd been contemplating this recently and opted against the chat box. Really glad to see that that decision is justified by those in the know!

    I agree with HM Beauty that they are practically the same thing and I believe that the forums are so far ahead, allowing for ongoing, durable conversations that instant chat cannot cater for.

      I even stated I wasn't poking fun at vBulletin.
      We all know that you are though all because you don't like the design of vB 4...

      Back on topic.
