That's exactly the problem I feared. I'm not newbie in forum owning\administrating, tried a lot but in the past. So this question meant to be more a survey about new market positions of forum software for small communities, not for the huge or fast growing ones. I do not rule out the possibility that forums made their steps into standartization of solving complex problems and giving most functionality, when we have 2-3 forum software names to fill 'em all. But even this point needs a confirmation.Because most users on TAZ are familiar with XenForo so they recommend XenForo. It's what they're most comfortable and familiar with, not because they've actually broadly surveyed the market.
No-no, not Jive anymore! I used to work as Jive integrator. That 9-12 physical servers solution is completely monstrous! When I tested it on my home PC, I used almost 30GB RAM only for basic virtualisation needs. =)Jive
I don't really care now.Are you looking for paid software, or free ?
