        Well, vB's standard features are generally what you'd have to hack into phpBB. Of course, that doesn't make phpBB bad. You have to realize that vB is one of the few BBS solutions you must pay for, and therefore, you should ask yourself if the investment is really going to be worth it. How do you plan to earn the money back? For example, I run my board for fun; I make no money off of it. But the satisfaction I get from running the board is reimbursement enough.

        But getting back to features, vB has many, many features that are standard with the stock installation. Like any other solution, you can always modify the stock installation by adding hacks, etc. With 3.5.3, though, the process is simplified with plug-ins. Instead of installing an entire hack, you just upload a single file, and the hack is automatically installed for you. And since it can be turned off via the ACP, you won't lose it when you upgrade. So far, I don't know of any other BBS that offers such a plug-in system, though I don't see why it couldn't eventually be offered.

        So, is the vB the best BBS around? It's a matter of opinion. Some feel it's too bloated, others think the more features, the better. I certainly think it's worth $160 for an owned license, though. I recommend you check out the online demo, and also compare vB to IPB, the closest competitor. IPB is another pay-for BBS that is well worth the $185. By comparing both vB and IPB, you can make the best choice.
