I've decided to run a poll to see what forum software BETAArchive members would like to see on the forum.

I'm kinda torn really. I like both IPB and phpBB, but I'd rather have phpBB because overall I think its better.

Honestly, I like IPB better from a user standpoint. phpBB is free though, I'd hate to see the administrative costs of this website go up...

IPB and SMF are both great. phpBB really isn't. :P

Huh, I just looked up the price of IPB, suddenly not so appealing.

Which is why Andy would never go for it. Unless someone donated the money.

I don't see the point in this topic, I already said we're using phpBB3, not some other software. IPB and vBulletin are too bloated and slow, I will NEVER use either of them. As for the others, why change to something that phpBB3 will do the same as? You have to remember about converting phpBB2 to the next software, does SMF even have a reliable converter? It wasn't made by the phpBB people so I can only assume not.
