    Makes me wonder if supporting other databases was one of the orignal goals of vB3 but then put off for a later version. Perhaps this is how the devs plan to port vB to other databases.
    The queries are throughout the code, hence why no official support for other RDBMSs. The database class is an extra file, however. Changing the class would not fix all the issues of switching to another RDBMS, as most queries are optimized specifically for MySQL, and therefore, you would need to go through most of the files and change the queries.

    "That competition has nothing to do with Jelsoft."

    Plausible deniability in action

    I only ask because in the December VBOTM contest a Website actully was nominated for VBOTM and switched back to phpbb aswell.

    Lets hope someone at VB notices this.... ;-)

    Actually, after having a look at the forum, I doubt they switched because of the MySQL issue. They don't have that many posts.

    Luckily the Kylie.com reference is still sitting neatly on vbulletin.com's index page, leading customer straightly into the arms of competition. Hey, marketing, are you reading here?

    Just to prevent misunderstanding: It's not been my intention to start a "why did they do it"-research. :-)

    I just wanted to point out that vB Sales might think about eliminating Kylie.com as one of ther top selling references on such a prominent place like their homepage index page.

    Potential customers might follow the Kylie.com link and learn, that Kylie.com just switched to "competition".
