Thread: Question about vBulletin software

    We could host it as a sub-forum here in the High School section. You'd have your own skin, access to moderating that forum, etc.

    Something to think about.

    Let me think about that as that might be an idea. I'll get back to you about it.
    Oregon Wrestling Forum www.theowf.net/the_owf

    There are free forums out there that are just as good, such as YaBB.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    That's a bold statement. Care to run them against each other?

    Not really, but for all intent purposes you don't need all the bells and whistles we have here. Most of them aren't getting used.

    True. For a small community many of the lesser features go unused. Although I'm not sure which ones you'd have seen that aren't getting much use (besides the new stuff we *just* released), because the majority of the functionality that isn't used is on the Admin side of things.

    I won't over glorify vBulletin (like I usually do.) because in this case you are pretty accurate. Purchasing vBulletin for smaller forums is not something that needs to happen (phpBB is a *pretty good* free option) for the board to be successful, however, try managing a forum with YaBB that has 60,000 posting members and 2.5 million posts.. you'd lose your mind..

    vBulletin is a perfect application to run this board because it's going to do nothing but grow.

    I'll wait until I have 60,000 users then we'll see!

    I just perused the vBulletin site to see how much it is and its much cheaper than I expected. I was figuring in the $500-1000 range, but it does come with the yearly update charge.

    I use YaBB for mine. It is pretty simple to run for what I want to do and is easy to maintain as it doesn't have a high priority on my site. I prefer simplicity to complex things when it comes to my site as its not my full-time job and I don't have time to mess with a bunch of things like that.

    The Indiana state association uses phpBB, which looks like things are limited. Don't get me started on the state association website! Just take a look, but be forewarned as someone that has done "a little" with web stuff, you will need a puke bucket close by. Here is the site as it needs TONS of work www.ihswca.com .

    It is pretty cost effective if you turn any profit whatsoever. If not, I'd always suggest a free script. I used YaBB a few years back on a site called wrestling-connection and just loved it.

    IHSWCA.. no comment.
