Suggestion: Bring BBPress to the level of vBulletin 3.6 (and make money)
I’m looking for a forum software for my site, but none on the market seems to be satisfying!
It seems forum software has peaked with vBulletin 3.6, 12 or more years ago! How come nothing seems to beat a piece of software that is 12 years old?! Many of the top forums that use vBulletin 3.6 don’t want to upgrade, simply because there isn’t anything better, anywhere.
(here is an example of typical vB 3.6 forum: http://paganforum.de)
My question/suggestion: Why can’t BBPress (or anyone else for that matter) match the design and functionalities and design of vBulletin of 12 years ago?
BBPress should do whatever it takes to reach that level, then we will be ready to pay!! There is a huge need out for a modern forum software! Plenty of people are stuck with their vB 3.6, simply because there isn’t anything better…
But from all the demos I have seen, the current BBPress interface looks and feels more like a Helpdesk support system than an actual forum…
Could someone please direct me to a version/skin/addon of BBPress that looks most similar to a vB 3.6 forum? Thank you!
