    You had to ask didn't you?

    Seriously I'm sure that it wouldn't happen as the public would have a massive cry about it.

    If IB bought out XenForo? Get a whole lot more Burning Board licenses!

    The public have done quite a lot of crying already over certain IB related forum software activities. Change anything? Na. IB may like the idea of upsetting people.
    I think it would be the best idea for IB to continue with this strategy and purchase XF, and every other platform out there. This would bring XF and every other platform out there down to vB level and therefore eradicate any competition. With the added bonus of making thousands of other people cry in the process.

    Win Win IB. Get your fingers out for new year and completely trash the entire forum scene.
    You made a good start with vB 5.

    The Drama Queens are on me.

    I'm unsure about how much money IB has at their disposal, but considering that they were able to buy out vB in the first place.. I wouldn't rule it out completely.
    And honestly, it could only work to IB's advantage, if they did that. Granted, it would likely take quite abit of money to convince their competitors to sell out like that.

    Xenoforo Support never helped me so i have a very hard time believing they are good.

    What did they not help you with? I've not had too many reasons to call on XenForo support myself but from what I've heard and read they generally give excellent support.

    Unfortunately XF cannot help you with banning or unbanning from any forum.
    They sell only the software, not their business what the buyer does with it as long as it's not illegal.

    I know - that's what TheBeyonder didn't get "help" with. Consequently, he was also banned from the XF support forums.

    There's usually two sides to every story, thanks for providing the other side of this one.

    Then it's unfortunate you missed the golden age of forums.

    Around 2008 to present. It's a cluttered forum software that always looks weird.

    vBulletin was the KING for many years. UBB was the first "king" and had a pretty good bunch of people creating modifications/features that made it even better. vBulletin came around and made all those features standard and that was the end of UBB. Actually, UBB scrambled and tried all sorts of stupid things but vBulletin was just too far ahead of the game. vBulletin was great.

    vBulletin CAN be great again but IN MY OPINION it needs to go back to the current latest version of vBulletin 4 (which is excellent) and build upon it --- and create a new brand of forum software. vBulletin 5 has damaged the vBulletin brand badly enough that I think a new name is needed...
