    OoOooOoOoo.....Interesting thread! :)

    Fantastic graphic chart you've got there.

    Although, what's with the filetype? I've never seen anyone use that filetype before.

    When I saved it as a file from this site [xenforo], it showed to me as "Scalable Vector Graphics" [eerr, SVG?]

    But thanks for linking to where it originated, Brogan! :)

    I see the ongoing "laughable" Burning Board Voting continues.
    It makes a mockery of the whole voting thing.

    I won't deny that BurningBoard was awesome back in the day - I administrated one...

    But that seems like a bunch of fans proxying to get burning in the lead.

    I voted ^^ Quite some time back actually. But I'm gonna add this to my signature XD And tell my forum members to vote for xenforo as well!
    (they love it, so no harm ;) )

    I also voted. It's amazing that MyBB is in the lead for best free forum. O_O

    I dont see how Burning Board can be winning...

    I have NEVER, EVER run into a forum that runs Burning Board. Until these polls started happening, I had never even heard of them. In fact, since then I've even SEARCHED for websites running Burning Board and still can't find anything. If I search in google, all I can find are articles on burning board exploits and sql injection vulnerabilities... or, scripts on how to convert other forum software to and from Burning Board.

    Both Burning Board and MyBB look clearly stuck in HTML3 design (not even HTML4).

    Would be nice if someone took over the forum ranking from big-boards.

    I see the list is missing about 7 software titles at least. Not to mention the massive amount of custom build solutions for corporations, or those ASP ones.
