Vote for the Best Forum Software of 2014

Best Free
Forum Software

Why MyBB:

2008 was the year of MyBB. With new important deployments and a constant increasing of its community, this forum software and its many advantages have taken some market shares to the other existing open source softwares.

The Forum Software Reviews team would like to congratulate the MyBB developers with the Best Open Source Forum Software Awards for 2008.

Best Commercial
Forum Software

Why vBulletin 3.8:

vBulletin is, for the second time, the Best Commercial Forum Software. This is not a real surprise as this forum software is one of the most used on Internet, and its robustness and reactivity are really well known. This software is without any doubt a really good piece of code.

Hey, any chance you guys

Hey, any chance you guys could review Invision Power Board? I've used both Invision Power Board and vBulletin, and in my humble opinion, Invsision Power Board is better. Then again I'll let you experts make the decision.

It nice that there are such

It nice that there are such awards as best forum software. It is really interesting to see competitors in both categories: open source and commercial. I personally think that there is no intrigue on the commercial forum software award. It will definitely be vBulletin for the third straight time. What about open source award, everything is more interesting there. I think that in this year we have a lot of competitors there, and everyone has similar chances to win. I will give my votes today. Thanks for the great reminder here. I will be keeping an eye on your blog.

Sincerely,

Alex Martinson from software application development

Wow what a great competition

Wow what a great competition we have here. It is interesting that in 2008 the best open source forum software was mybb. I would not agree with such decision. Personally I don't see any competitors to Phpbb. It is an old wolf in the forum software industry but it is still the best. I don't know why no one created something better than phpbb, but the reality is that it is the best nowadays. Talking about commercial forum software.. I would stick with vBulletin one more time. It just have no competitors in this niche. Thanks for the interesting post and I will be waiting for more interesting ones from you in the nearest future too.

Best Regards,

Nick Tillson from gratta e vinci

Moral dilemna!

Wazzup! Been just reading for a while and just decided to write!

Anyways, I had this urge to talk about an event. Here's what happened When I was done with school one day I headed out, I was hungry so I took a detour to this fast food joint and ordered a sandwitch and took it to a table and sat down when it suddenly occured to me they didn't charge me!

Yeah evidently they were super busy and distracted because there was this manager/investor type looking around everywhere and talking to them. So I was just about to go up to the counter and say I hadn't paid but then I realized if I did that the owner guy might get mad at the employees. So I just left. What should I have done do you think?

Just so. MyBB is the most

Just so. MyBB is the most prominent packaging, and is not a total eyesore. As a user of SMF, you have to admit, the default theme is an eyesore. Also the development of their land is slow. The administration is not so great either. Now MyBB is not golden either. I'll admit that. We have our own problems, but it sure does not go as deep as the levels of SMF scraps para orkut
