    These are really just templates. Should be able to change things...

        I don't know what you mean by architecture. The individual pages can be edited by you. Drag and Drop, remove modules, add modules, change whether the sidebar is left or right or gone...

        Template control how the different content looks though. By changes, I meant style developers, addon programmers, etc... Though based on feedback, the defaults could be changed to. That is why you need to get your ideas into JIRA.

          So many good points there:

          Forums will ALWAYS be around in their current form as there quite simply is zero comparison between a forum and a social network.

            I am reading that you are now thinking about keep-on with vB 4,
            let me say it seems to me a good idea.

            Please, have a look on this thread and consider the idea to target 2 differents segments:

            vBulletin 4: a robust discussion board (content and discussion community).

            vBulletin Connect: facebooky thing (social networking).

              They should establish their own single-sign on system and make other options like Facebook and Google+ optional in the settings. Social networking is now. Forums will go under without taking it into account. Let there be no doubt about this. Let you disable all of the social networking features you want, all of the CMS activity you want, and all of the blogging you want. But social networking resulted in the largest IPO in history, the largest Internet audience in history, and it will eradicate bulletin board systems if they don't evolve. I disagree on all levels.
