    They used to do that.
    I'm not sure that many would do it today.

    It's not a nice forum even for beginners if you are serious about your forum. Proboards is only suitable for forum admin training/practicing, or a temporary forum if the main forum needs to be down for like 2-3 months. Also why is this in yabb's subsection?

    I have heard mixed reviews about Proboards. Good reviews are mainly from starters. It used to be a very popular topic sometime back.

    Jumping from any platform to vBulletin right now wouldn't be a very wise move.

    Compared to the likes of proboards, VB is still way too good to pass.

    The OP (or anyone else) should choose a platform that still has developers working on it. vB5 shouldn't be an option for anyone.

    I would anytime use my own hosting as much as possible. I see some good set up by member @gamestop. It is a free hosted MyBB. Nice themes and all.

    I was just implying that vB is better than a free hosted forum.

    Hey guys, sorry to drop in uninvited - David Clark here, I work for ProBoards. I found this thread because I have Google Alerts set up to notify me about ProBoards-related conversations. Hi. :p

    I'd rather not be lame and drop a ProBoards bump where it might not belong (and I can't speak for users who might have moved from PB to vB), so I'll just say if anyone has any questions concerning moving your community over to ProBoards from another host, I can help you. Just register on the previously-linked Support board and shoot me a PM there. I'll also check on this thread again later.

    If you're an active community with 200+ daily members and you've got database access, we can talk about converting your data over to a PB forum with some additional relocation incentives like a few months of ad-free as well as no-charge custom domain linking.

    Some forum admins have a need for self-hosted solutions, and that's totally fine, but if you'd rather avoid the headaches that can sometimes come with that, we'd love to have you!

    Plus, we're just about to announce a white-label (free of ProBoards branding) forum service that will allow you to export your database after a certain amount of time. We haven't told our users that info yet, so that's a little sneak peek for those of you who happen upon this thread. :thumb:
