I am on vBulletin but: The upgrade costs are ridiculous. vB is far too bloated for what I want. I really do not like their attitudes. There are some basic free boards that are nice and I respect their developers, but they just are not getting to what I need them to be. Being on 3.8.2 I have security concerns. So, I would be grateful for some answers to my questions: Should I be concerned about xF going down the same pricing path in the future? Quick fixes of security issues. Will there be just one script with everything packed into it or will there be different packages: Forum only with basics, like a shoutbox, smilie catagories and similar offerings built around the forum concept. Portal Blogs Other Combination thereof Thanks for any answers. They are appreciated and I am seriously considering this software.
