The forum looks great, first time in ages I have looked at a forum and thought "ooo thats nice". Yeah its a bit pricey for my needs but that doesnt bother me. The names of the staff and people posting here have given me confidence that this product will have a long and healthy life. As for brand loyalty, been a vB licence owner for 9 years but vB for me died the day I found out Kier had left (and then it resurrected as an evil zombie trying to eat my wallet!)
For the first time in ages I have a serious "upgrade forum itch" that I know a good dose of XenForo will fix.
But the site I run is small, at most 20 people visiting a day, on average about 1 post a day. Its a guild website for a world of warcraft guild and couple of add ons are fairly essential. First is the item linking, which is a fairly simple addon, probably with a bit of fiddling I could get that to work maybe. Then there is the application form, which posts a new thread in a forum for people to comment on, probably a bit out of my ability to do. Then there is vbadvanced for front page, i guess wordpress could be used for that. Main problem would be bridge to eqdkp plus, but then again how essential is it to share logins.
Damn, think i talked myself into buying a licence
