    It's vB, not vBB.

    you forget all the news scripts with comments... i've made an advanced news script... if i gave everyone permission to post it'd be a thread so dont forget all the news scripts... i've made my news script into a basic forum to help me learn php more. i plan to do the same when i start ASP.NET again. its easy when you know how but i dont expect to give them out. i probably think all the free boards started out as personal projects imo Watch out for XiBoardPHP and XiBoard.NET soon... ( before i go rambling on and on and on like i used to )

    I think ezBoard has this feature. I can see how it would be beneficial to some but I don't think I'd like it. I don't really want people that hop from board to board. I want people who are interested enough to take the time and effort to register. Plus it seems like it would require a lot more work in monitoring the forums, banning users, etc. Not quite sure how user names work but if no one could have a duplicate that would use up a lot of good ones.

    Not sure I like this idea. I mean, in theory, it's a good idea, but nonetheless, if you are subscribed to one forum, then you're subscribed to them all. Either that or you have a checkbox next to the ones you wish to be a member of, or something like that. That might be ok, but if you're a member of every forum, like a 'global account' (in which I believe that EzBoard has something similar) than that's almost like an invasion of privacy, that allows other admins/possible mods to have access to email addresses and stuff and then start spamming.

    Someone correct me if this is not right.

    We have thought about that actually.

    Keep in mind, too, that there really aren't that many ways to have a web-based bulletin board. I can think of about three possible formats, the vB/UBB.classic format being the easiest to use. So unless someone totally revolutionizes the way message boards are done, you're going to have a lot of overlap in features and looks.

    I can't say that all the aforementioned boards are clones ... but the format of topic and message display, features, and so on are very similar to the vB/UBB style.


    Other vB-like boards I've found include edgeBoard, He Bulletin Board, and MercuryBoard.

    There are other "flat" boards out there, like Discus, but I didn't include it in the list. Older versions of Discus didn't resemble the vB/UBB format, but 4.0 looks more familiar -- not quite like vB/UBB/iKonboard/phpBB/YaBB/Invisionetc, but it doesn't seem that "alien."

    I didn't include the "threaded" boards, like the venerable WWWBoard.

The real forum runners will (or should) always go for vBulletin over other boards because it is tried and tested by millions of users. Nothing is wrong with these other free products, but many web masters migrate because they realise their current forums cannot handle the load and crumble over time. You (don't) pay your money, you take your chances.

    I would even go as far to say that vB has become the defacto standard for discussion software.
    I agree. However remember that UBB has been around for a lot longer than us...some people still trust it more. In my opinion the two boards that fit into the above description are vB and UBB (and by UBB I mean both UBB.Classic and UBB.Threads).
