Which software do you perfer? Or like? You've been on plenty of boards, but yet...We never know exactly how you like them..So, when you post on a board. What do you think about it? Here's a poll to see which you perfer.

If I did'nt make that clear, I'm sorry.:P

I myself perfer IPB. Because, I can manage mySQL and tweak it to work at the times I need. Rcon jobs, etc. That and I can script it. But, keeping the tables from overloading is hard^^; Well, that and the custom things you include...sometimes they crash the board....Just ask UE..I've crashed 5<<;

I use EZBoards. My first, and thus it has a special place in my heart.

I've tried Ezboards. I REALLY didn't like it. I like the features that Hyperboards now has.

I hate all of the softwares mentioned in the poll. The best I've seen is the one Deviant(spelling? : P)Art uses. I don't go to DA, but I go to a board that uses a similar software, and I love it.

Personally, I'm most familiar with Woltlab Burning Board. Though, IPB has quite some promising features too...

I like PHP and uhhh..Invision isn't bad, at least it's not YaBB.

I've been on Woltlabs for the past two or three years though, so I'm used to them.

I used to have a Proboards board, but now I've got a Hyperboards one. I prefer Hyperboards.

Toon be honest, Hyperboards and Proboards use the same thing. there both CGI, but one just has more features then the other. But as well. PB4 comes out soon. IPB is beter then YaBB, But YaBB is like SMF. Other similiarties too. Woltlabs is actually its own software, thank god. All oters are like cpies. Except for SMF, and maybe. DA is actually like SMF board as well. But, I'd get more into this, IF I was'nt so busy.

I never said that. I said I hate most softwares I've seen MBs use. I overlooked XMB tho... since the only XMB board I've posted on is this one...

It looks really nice, so I guess this software is pretty.... neat.

I don't *love* any of those choices, I merely went with the one that suit me the best (XMB) from what was available back when I was forced to switch from the Ikonboard. I like this one since there are a lot of pre-made modifications available, and I can make my own easily.

On the other side, I have a personal dislike toward Ezboards as a user. It really sucks, and hasn't evolved for years.

I like InvisionPowerboards, because, well...I haven't seen many choices (I actually made one once, the banner SAID it was free....They deleted it. XP)

So I use proboards. If you checked a certain beyblade site which runs on it, it looks very, VERY advanced for the system, and can't even tell it's proboards anymore.

I can't really tell just by looking at the Ezboard's pages wether it's CGI or not. However, why does it matter? I fail to see what's different between a PHP and CGI (Perl) board from the user's point of view.

Just the way it looks. All PHP boards look alike, and most CGI boards look alike. CGI is much simpler looking. I think that PHP is much more versatile of what you can do with it, too. I dunno, though, since I've never been an admin of a PHP board. To know for sure, I'd have to admin both (PHP and CGI) at the same time and look at the difference. From a user's point of view, though, that's what I can see.
