    My thoughts on Xenforo.

      Just wanted to say so far I'm loving the new Chat Addicts here on Xenforo. IMO the skin looks much cleaner and more professional then the old one did on vBulletin. I find the software itself much cleaner, faster and overall a better experience over vBulletin. Being a member of forums powered by both Xenforo and vBulletin, I always seem to frequent the XF powered forums more often then the vBulletin ones. :) I guess I'm a bit biased but hey. I loved vBulletin for back in the day, it was the be-all-end all software but nowadays it's just showing it's age and if you run version 4.x, then you're really in a pickle because that had to be by far the worst software I've ever used. So props for going to Xenforo and I hope to see Chat-Addicts flourish on the new software! :D Can't wait to see what updates Nikki has up her sleeve :D

      I think the switch is what all VB admins should do as XF is the forum software right now.

      That's a matter of opinion. I switched from vB to IPB and haven't looked back :) Yes i own a xF license as well. :) I guess it comes down to what you want out of your forum though :)

      Yep agreed that is a matter of opinion I like IPB and have used forums for 12 years now and XF ticks all the right boxes as a member, no longer run a forum too much like hard work for little or no return.
