  • Least used feature?

    What feature of vB (2 or 3) do you use the least often? For me it would probably be the Buddy List.


  • #2
    I never use the buddy list, and in vB3, I don't use the majority of the features. In fact, as I'm redesigning my site for vB3 to be accessible and attractive, while also being simple, I am just ripping out huge chunks of HTML (yes, making sure that it's safe) to simplify the layout for new forum users. Put yourself in the mindset of a new forum user and look at any modern forum package and you'll see what I mean.

      I never used the buddy list in vBulletin 2, but I use it on vBulletin 3. I never suscribed to threads or forums in vB2, I do in vB3 though.

        I use the Buddy List, it's the easiest way to mass PM my mods, or for that matter PM any users that I regularly converse with.

        After two years I'm still discovering new things about vbulletin.

              Pretty much everything except for the forumhome, forumdisplay and showthread pages of any vB forum I visit.

                  ...most of the visual polution below <previous/next thread> has been ditched on mine.

                  Large boards with a tendency to lean towards information over-stimuluation can use the full feature set, but luckily vB makes it easy enough to trim the fat as needed.

                    On my board listed below I have disabled the calendar and removed the link. It's a useless feature for the site that it is.

                      Listed below? I don't see anything below your post. Oh wait, I disabled signitures because they are useless ways to advertise and gain pagerank.
