    The "v" simply means: "VERY much better than UBB."

    I tried UBB years ago...it was a bugger to set up and get running. The other forums I tried (including vB and a couple other popular PHP ones) were basically ready to go once they were uploaded and populated with the database login info.

    AKA, it means almost nothing, just a way to brand a software.
    No.

    Again? Seems like this 'v' would become Jelsoft's enigma.

    Unfortunately it also means some people try to spam it.

    That is closer to the truth than 'The v means nothing'.
    It no longer says "v stands for nothing."

    Nice find indeed. So we now know that the first version of vBulletin was written in four days! Interesting.
