A search would also have brought up this information - this has been asked at least 3 times now since Christmas.

I knew this was vBulletin because phpBB doesn't look this way

but why vBulletin??? vBulletin is proprietary, isn't it?

Why not use vBulletin? Why do people still use Windows? Why do apples fall from trees?

Jeremy has mentioned many many times, when this site was started, there were really no full featured bulletin board type forums like these around.

But Jeremy has hacked on this vBulletin so much, he could probably call it his own at this time.

as if this website started yesterday, and he had all the choices...

i appreciate the uptime, rather than jeremy chaseing down the latest technologies. I'm glad he has the capability to maintain and update the underlying system he started the site with rather than dump the whole site everytime some other forum system comes out with a new feature he thinks LQ needs...

I asked the same question a while ago coz I was suprised that he was running proprietary app, but then again, the explanations made sense and like someone else said, you use the best tool available for the job at that time.

Unless this forum was created many years ago, I am suprised that jeremy didn't use phpBB.

Ok, I didn't know then in 2001 wasn't anything free like phpBB. Anyway, this forum doesn't look like other vBulletin forums like nvNews or Rage3D, and not like phpBB.
