When i first started out with forums it was in 2004 for the war game Call of Duty .. I had no idea at the time of course who was what and opened my site using SMF .. The more i got into it and the busier we became i started searching for the best software on the net, all the answers i got to my questions led me to vBulletin. I sold that forum with over 300k posts on it due to me losing the passion for the game as it came out with newer versions. If anyone was to use my method today then vBulletin would not be the choice to move to .. Just a thought on what must be happening right now ..
