Here's a question. How is phpBB in general as forum softwares go? Would you suggest it over the likes of Xenforo and (lol) Vbulletin? Any disadvantages to it?

phpBB is honestly quite nice! The development is solid, it's open source, the community and devs are dedicated and 3.1 boasts a nice extension system for when you want to code your own additions. By now, the database of available 3rd-party extensions should have grown considerably. The current USP was set up when phpBB 3.1 was JUST coming out, and thus the article features etc. are all hand-coded by me, which is why they're obviously all broken.

Sadly I can't give you a comparison with XenForo or vBulletin as I never used anything but Woltlab Burning Board (ANCIENT software) and phpBB. I hear good things about XenForo, but IIRC it's paid? phpBB3 is, at least, fully free and open to everyone. webmaster & administrator
