Where to begin? Please be patient with me as I have read through many threads here but I am still at a little bit of a loss. What started out as a simple question has led me all over the web and has finally landed me here on this forum. In the past, I have used vb and had been very happy with it. It has been about 5 or 6 years since I have used it but now find myself in a need to set up another forum. So, naturally I think to myself, I will just use my vb license and set up a new board, (thinking to self) now let's see what web hosts people are recommending for vB nowadays. Well, needless to say, that one little question has now led me to question whether or not to even use vB. What once looked like a thriving community now appears to have gone off the rails a little bit. Now I could be mistaken here so I am definitely open to correction on this, but the reading I have done so far makes it seem as vB has fallen behind and is continuing to lose ground for various reasons. So, that said and if true I am hoping to get a little guidance here. Where we are currently. This will be a new forum, so no mods or users to import or databases to convert or anything like that. This is really a start from scratch type of thing. The reason I am posting in the vB forum is that this is what I used to use and figured you all would be best to tell me if it is time to use a different platform or whatnot. I know many will want to know how big the forum will be and what our plans are, but it really is difficult to say at the moment. Its one of those things that could stay small or grow, we just don't know. I would think that most forums nowadays are fairly scaleable but again I am not sure and open to correction on this. So my question is, is vB still viable? If not, what are you all recommending? I would really appreciate hearing what you all have to say. Thanks in advance!
