    That thing about the wheel?

    Reinvention is one thing. Improvement is another. We have come a long way from ancient wheels to what we have today. Such as the utilization of alloy metals and bearings.
    All I know is that it'd be easier for me to buy a package. The last computer language I wrote was BASIC. LOL

    Anyway. I do like the versions that are paid for above the open source versions like phpBB though that is very capable of modifications that I can create, php is a skill that I don't seem to have much time to exercise nowadays.

    If any of you are on some other forums and enjoy their setups, tell me what software they use.

    My best guess is I'll be going with Xenforo or something like that, and as I said it is always an option to stick with vBulletin, though we'd lose some features that I like. I have not found "thanks/groans" for example. There is a thank you feature in there, but the groans don't seem to be available. I may go that route anyway as groans really do not add much value to the site, but they are sometimes fun.

    Xenforo is currently the most likely software I'll get for the forum.
    It is your forum. Do what is best for you.

    Mr. Tiny Penis, buying a package will not solve your little problem. Ask any tranny.

    I've been on a couple of forums that use Invision Community

    https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/

    Takes a little getting used to, but it's pretty good.

    Xenforo is better though, I think.

    Aw fuck! I got banned the last time I fussed (and cussed) at an admin for switching to Xenforo.

    Ofc, he was a dick. The majority of people liked the VBulletin better. He didn't listen to anyone and switched anyways, probably lost 40% just like that.

    I'm making my 1 vote for sticking with VBulletin known.

    I know what's his face will always stick with VBulletin. He don't give a fuck!

    Yeah, I can't post his handle here. It is what it is.

    If you don't have to upgrade the Vbulletin software, that is best.

    Every forum I've seen that switched..it was always better the old way.

    Some of the largest on the internet.

    4chan, for example.

    Nope. The wheel is still round.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.
