That is very interesting, good to see.
I started a project a few months ago and I used Smf for it. The project went dead btw. I started a new one a couple of weeks ago using Smf again and it is going good so far. If it keeps growing, I will switch to a paid forum in the near future, Ipb.If you are going to start a project (either for fun or serious) what forum software you will go with?
Will it be a free forum software to get started and paid or will it be Paid when starting?
Now i have started with free and if i am really serious or see a good growth i will move to paid forum software
What changed with IP.B to remove it from being your "fav for a decade"?Free: Vanilla
I have difficulty recommending either vBulletin or IP.Board these days, and the latter was my favorite for nearly a decade.
You agree with "having difficulty recommending the latter" - which was Invision Community?You're not the only one feeling similarly. Unless you're running a board that once depended on niche features from oldschool scripts, modern software is a more interesting option for forums to focus on communication and purge distractions. Boards look pretty much the same on small mobile displays, so its difficult justifying a pricetag for an experience you're not exploiting optimally as a webmaster.
