    Anyway, it's been a good resource for me as I run a big board.
    I concur. I own a big-board too and have found the admin zone (www.theadminzone.com/forums) to be the best source of vBulletin related discourse around.

    The big-board forum is screened and accessible via usergroup permission only which is nice.

      www.theadminzone.com & www.best-boards.com are both good resources for forum admins but I would still like to see an official vb forum.

            The forum fix is good, I like the articles about making money LOL

            What do you mean? I thought we were on the official forum right now
            LOL I meant a forum on vb.com for owners of larger boards. I would love to try out tweaks that came directly from the dev team!

                I don't have a 1mil+ forum, but I vote a forum for large boards and hacks over at vB.org if they can't be put here.

                  I would also recomend the Big Boards forum on www.theadminzone.com the best admin resource hands down, there are other smaller ones but TAZ is the fastest I say.

                    If such a forum were set up, it would be primarily for interaction between customers with big boards. As some of the adjustments being used now and probably in the future require the code to be modified, we can't support them.

                      skipping over where to host this forum on vBulletin.com or .org or elsewhere, the idea itself is excellent

                      who's to say whether through discussions between large forum operators we arrive at fixes, and solutions to troublesome issues which can be implemented in the next version of vBulletin or come across hardware compatibility issues and the like we can be aware of i.e. centOS + 2.6.9-22 kernel bug http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=171071

                        So that forum is available only to people who are listed on big-boards.com? I'd like to be able to read that forum, but don't have a big board. :/

                          I agree. I don't understand why you have to have a "big board" in order to gain knowledge about how to run one in the future?

                            LOL - We had this same conversation when we opened the Big-Boards Forum. For the most part, topics discussed it that forum only apply to big boards. And, like here, the administrators of the big boards post all over the place, not just within that forum. But they do like to have a private place to discuss topics of interest to Big Board admins. Premium members of the Admin Zone who do not run big boards are able to see the discussions but cannot post in them. Among other things, posting an article will get you into the Premium group.

                                I think it could be a good read. I think our forum counts as big 200-600 online can get as meny as 1500 at times, only at 650k posts at the moment however we do have nearly 20000 registered users. Its running on a mostly dedicated server; thers a couple of other sites on their and we run irc and cs servers it does get very slow at times for no apparent reason.

                                This forum may help me tweak it to be a little faster. Then again i'm sure the upgrade to vb3.5 will help a bit.
                                Some of my Mods:
                                Advanced IP Ban Manager (vb3.6+ version) - Fine grained control over blocking trouble makers.
                                Advanced IP Ban Manager (vb4 version) - Fine grained control over blocking trouble makers.
                                Use Original thread for Comments - Uses the original thread for comments for any forum threads promoted to CMS articles.
                                Custom Friendly Urls - Allows customisation of forum urls from the admin CP.
