Paul, et. al.,
My company is looking at bulletin board products and UBB is a finalist. I'm pretty much sold but since Java Ranch uses it just wanted to see if people had any info on problems or had any issues with it. SInce you're still using it I assume you are satisfied.
Please let me know what you think.
Thanks.

I did a lot of research before going with UBB. I think it is easily the best.
Yes, we've had our problems and our limitations, but overall, it is a very solid product.

vBulletin is infinitely superior to UBB. It can handle much larger volumes and since it uses a database is much easier to maintain. vBulletin uses PHP and MySQL which is a vast improvement over Perl and flat files which is used by UBB.
