Well, I'd like to use MyBB - due to the free nature, however, the code modifications to make it like a premium solution are just not something I want to deal with. I mean, the sky's the limit, a person can code anything - but do they feel it's worth the time?It's criminally overrated, regardless of its own faults. That's all I can say.
F.Y.I. you are on an xenForo forum. Most of the features you see on this site is/are now on xenForo 2.1 which is currently in beta.I've never used XenForo or ever read reviews for it. I've only used CreateAForum, ProBoards and SMF. I think SMF is a decent forum software as it's easy to setup and there's a great community and lots of modifications for it. But back to XenForo, I've never used it. It does look like a decent forum software though.
xenForo is pretty cheap. It used to be $140 before the start of this year, but now it's $160, and renewals are cheaper than the competition. Used to be $40, but is now $55.The only thing I could see me ever switching to in terms of paid software other than Xenforo is IPB. The only thing that would really keep me from switching right now is the fact that I don't want to fork out another $200 for another software when I already have money invested into Xenforo and it seems to be working okay. I also haven't used IPB in a few years so I am not at all as familiar with the back-end.
Considering that vB seems half a step from being abandoned, this shouldn't come as a surprise.VB seems far worse than XF
That's why you want to follow the spirit of open source. Instead of forty admins coding the same thing forty times, the forty could get together to release a MyBB + Premium Features and everyone benefits.Well, I'd like to use MyBB - due to the free nature, however, the code modifications to make it like a premium solution are just not something I want to deal with.

This isn't XenForo, it's obviously a highly modded installation of MyBB which Cameron spent months on lolF.Y.I. you are on an xenForo forum.
I can see people downloading it, usually after I post about an update on FP, but no production runs so far lolAt least Gosora is fast and seems to load pretty reliably. I don't understand why the FP crowd didn't pick it up.
