    As squall14716 mentioned while I was typing my post:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...10&postcount=1

    I'd like to see you go through that list and say what is in IPB, will be IPB, and isn't/won't be in IPB.

    Speration of User Titles and Ranks - INCLUDED
    Template conditionals - TO BE INCLUDED: 2.0
    Access Masks - INCLUDED
    An FAQ and Manager - INCLUDED (I believe)
    Anouncements, Global Anouncements and Announcement Manager - TO BE INCLUDED
    Super Administrators and Administrator Permissions - INCLUDED
    Custom User Profile Fields - TO BE INCLUDED
    User Reputations
    Custom BBCodes - TO BE INCLUDED
    Loads of Update Counters Options - What do you mean?
    Merge Users - NOT SURE
    Referrals

    Not bad, eh?

    Besides, IPB 2.0 could well be in a solid beta or RC (or even final) before vB3 is final. People will doubt that, but people have said vB3 would beat IPB 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 to market in the past, so I wouldn't be shocked.
    IPB is Alpha at the moment, correct? Does that not mean that the features that are to be included are not in any IPBs outside of IPS at the moment while the features in vBulletin are on tens if not hundreds of thousands of forums now? We can say that any feature under the sun will be in vBulletin one day but if it isn't there and is in the competition's software then there wouldn't be much to brag about like in the case of IPB 2.0.

    An other point why vB is better: There are so much more hacks.
    You don't find special hacks for the IPB but the hack group of the vBulletin is very big.

    And if IPB want to have money, too? That isn't just fun, one of the man of the IPB group wants to get money for IPB..

    vB is way better than IPB.
    Period.
    Hard Coding=Bad
    If you hard code everything your going to get an error unless your good at php.
    IPB should NOT be used by newbies. I am not a newbie but vB is better.

I have hi-speed. Why waste time making things fancy, when all you need are the basics? You just need buttons and clickable emoticons. And they make it so when you click an emoticon, it appears as an image, not code. Awww...how cute. NOT. It just makes the page even longer to load!
    thats windows related (happens with win 98 (and pre) and not a vbulletin problem.

    And IPB only puts in useful features.
    Well, that's a matter of perception, really. I personally find all the features you tagged as "useless" to be very useful...hence the fact that I use vB. If you find IPB's features more important/useful to you and your site, then by all means use IPB.

    If you have special features or custom avatar or profile pic servie, you can give it to them when they get so many refferals, on the board im on we give users Profile Markups. 1 referal Colored Title 2 refs, scrolling title+color, 3 refs custom sidebar image + title+color


    its really a great way of getting ppl to pass your site around, word of mouth goes a long way
