Default Mopar1973Man.Com is jumping over the vB / IPB fence.
Well gang...

I finally gone and done it I bailed out of the vBulletin 4 and jumped over the fence to IPB software. It's been real and its been fun but it hasn't been really fun. Time to move on...

Sorry to see you go but its not really unexpected anymore that people leave the vBulletin scene.

Can you explain in detail why you choose for IPB and why you wanted to migrate.

Good luck with your move...unless you get a decent skin you may find resistance from users. vB users seem not to like IPB's general look, they seem to prefer XF to IPB. Decent skin gets round it though.

Cheers Mike, it was fun but not really. Now it's history, enjoy it..

I am sure you won't be the last..

Rather saddening if I have to tell the truth..

Nothing wrong with phpBB3, at least it's not bug ridden and unsupported like vB4 now. Did I read there are not even any developers working on vB4 these days, good luck with your board Mark, if vB4 is affectively EOL?

So then Mark, are there any developers working on vB4 now? Simply enough question to answer without you skipping around it, as I thought I read your mate admit nobody is working on it anymore.

Never mind, I guess you won't know the answer the that question seeing as you keep saying "you don't work for interet brands" on other forums like Admin Talk.

Not quite. I don't know the answer because I work in support, not development.

And also, shame on people for taking a thread started by a long term vB user, which SHOULD have been full of good luck messages and advice, and turning it into YET ANOTHER "isn't vB crap and we hate the corrupt staff" thread.

I have two wishes:

1. All the best for the future to Moparman.
Though if I may ask a question, why not wait till IPB 4?

2. I wish Paul is here.
vB threads are less fun without him around.

You did the right thing imo to move away from the vb. I had a question though, what made you to choose Ipb over xenforo or another software?
