I don't sign up on many forums these days but i have no issue signing up on them. Unfortunately forums are becoming a dying breed.

that's why I'm adding more features than just a forum on to my site.
people are brain washed to the likes of social media..

It's been going on for a long time since I've been running forums, I did join one recently figured it go far, lasted 3 months and the owner sold it :(
You need to check out my forum! (shameless plug) :)

Perhaps, but I'm on a tomne of forums, all very active! I love forums a lot more than say networking sites.

I'm glad you hang out on my forum! My main issue is money. I only had a single XF license and to get another was $140. In the interim, I tried several free forums which were all junk. So I saved up and got a license and opened my forum!
I like yours :)
I do understand how the cost can be an issue for many people. That's why I'm in Proboards. Not to mention the fact I don't know much about tech & coding!
I've never had to get a license so I'm curious why a single one isn't good enough.

Haven't you open and closed a lot of them?
Yes, many failures, or crappy free scripts ,demos, etc. This time I dropped a pretty good amount of cash to renew my license and change the domain. Thats's a pretty big incentive for me. :)

A single license?

And thanks! I put a heck of a lot of time into this one, esp. to make it unique. :)

If they're using a paid software like XenForo or IPB I am more inclined to join because they've at least invested a little money into their forum, which shows that they are serious.
Xenforo and IPB are the best for a forum, Mybb is okay but development has slowed down.
I agree with you.

I don't even sign up for forums unless they are Xenforo a lot of times . I avoid Proboards like the plague. lol

I don't mind it, I like how you only need one Proboards account and it can be used for all forums using it

I wish their was. Xenforo system where you only need one Xenforo account to connect between many forums.

for now Facebook & Twitter connect works.

That would be cool but I guess that type of system may not work well with self-hosted forums.
That’s true too, forumotion & proboards forums linking to a system like that would depend on the host themselves.

I don't know, I think social media is just a hell of a lot easier to use than forums really. The internet has just evolved.

It’s easier to use but information has become harder to find.

if the forum uses IP Board or Xenforo they may have a chance still since the software has a Facebookey feel.

Yes, a single license versus having more than one. I read threads all the time of people buying & selling but was curious why you would need more than one license. When I drive a car, I only need ONE driver's license lol
You do make it unique! :)

Well that's too bad lol What about Proboards don't you like? They will be going to V6 (sometime in the near future) so maybe it will be something they change.

@Ash The main reason I don't like it is that half the time the unified logon doesn't even work (for me anyway( and several times, links on a Proboards forum I was on would lead to suspicious sites instead of being an internal link. F that.
