Would you ever change forum software?
Recently I began to think why people use certain forum software over others and why most vbulletin sites are popular compared to sites run by phpbb or our beloved mybb. Most people use mybb because its free and general is similar to vbulletin. Others use phpbb generally because its more popular. In the end I never found out exactly why vbulletin is so popular... but that's not the real point I'm getting at.

Most of the time money and license issues are why people do not wish to get a paid forum but what would you do if you had a site run by mybb then "all of a sudden" your forum becomes so popular, making a few hundred monthly and well over 50k active people using it. Would you "upgrade" or stay on mybb?

I personally don't think I can upgrade or even think of using a different forum anymore, I once was an admin for vbulletin for a friend of mine and just didn't like the admin cp. I also got to play around with an trial IPB demo and didn't enjoy its complexity. I think mybb generally has things better and is much more user friendly. Sure the only thing which in my opinion it lacks is security compared to paid forums but then again it has a great team which is consistently working on security flaws and since your not paying for it you can't expect it to be perfect and flawless (which one day it will be Smile).

So what are your views on this topic? Would you upgrade to a different forum or stay on mybb?
