    Has anyone else started to hate using other forum software due to the lack of standard features here on xF?

    I find myself getting lost on vB forums I was very confident using due to their lack of the "alerts" functionality and "watch thread" and "like" button. I also find vB forums in particular very cluttered.

    I guess this is a good thing for xF but it's shocking how used to this software I got after only a few weeks using it even though I have been using vB for years...

    I'm actually more on XF than any other forum currently, including the one I help run. :D

    At first I was a little skeptical about Xenforo, as I'm sure a lot of other people were.
    I only found out about Xenforo about a week or two ago and I'm dreading even using my own vBulletin forum.
    My first reaction was "Wow, this postbit sucks. *exit window and continue browsing*".
    I then come back and actually use the software and realized how better the new style is.

    Nothing compares at this point.

    The clean interface just kills all the clutter on other forums out there.

    In a way, yes. Because although XF has many exclusive features, it also lacks some basic features that other forums have. So it's a give-and-take relationship.

    Yup, I've noticed the same thing... I never really thought about previously, but now that I'm working with XF and IPB regularly I've started noticing all the things I don't like about vB... It's the little things, like alerts or "likes" that I miss on other platforms (including IPB) now. Personally, I think vB looks rather dated and cluttered in comparison.

    Dated is the perfect way to describe it actually... it's very strange.
