I was doing a search online and I was looking for large forums that converted to IPB4 as well as other communities. I am blown away with what I found.

From a forum that is geared around Korean entertainment to a Fishing forum to a book forum to gaming sites and every site in between with Millions of posts and even down to 10 posts, it is amazing to see these sites.

Each site seems to have its own distinct aspect and branding. I also plan to move my own forum over that I am buying actually and merging it with another(Xenforo) site so i will be adding that to the list as well for large forums.

Keep in mind these are all live sites running a software that has not even been officially announced and that some even try to warn not to use ;)


The largest 4 forum I've found so far:
1. Soompi Forums(Nearly 12 million posts)
http://forums.soompi.com/en/

2. Gaga Daily(I know it has a few million i believe just not sure the exact account).
http://gagadaily.com/

3. Autoscript(Over 1,000,000 Posts)
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/

4. Fishing Minnesota(Over 1,000,000 posts)

Gaga Daily is a heavily modified forum from IPB3 and now IPB4.

Soompi is awesome. Korean movies are fantastic and the K-dramas are the favorite of many I know, including K-pop. I just wish that IPS4 could also accommodate the content part so the entire site was IPS based. Unfortunately it can't handle the URL structure. Nice job on the Tolkien forum although I think some of their colors make text virtually illegible. Still a unique color combo.

No problems here with reading on that Tolkien forum. Colors and that header is amazing.

Look at the footer. You can barely see the branding at all. Problem is that the color is the same as the one in the menu tabs and also the author byline. Quite hard to read on a bright monitor like mine. Otherwise, nicely done.

Okay, I'll agree the footer could use some attention.

DCFC Fans is nice. Black is a bit blunt, though. A very pleasant fixed width.

I recently upgraded Skywarn Forum to IPB4. So far, I like it, I like the drag and drop ability to add menus, header and footer widgets/blocks. That it really nice, cuts a lot of time out of the equation. The admin area is a lot more organized now as well. That is a big plus as well. I just need to work on creating a better theme now.

Nice list. Who is going to maintain it now that the OP is banned?

This is a great list. Thank you to the OP for putting together the time for listing all of these.

I'm sure that his next ban-dodging account will be more than capable of keeping us up-to-date on which forums are running IPS4. :thumb:
