well i didn't say that phpBB doesn't kick @ss.. because it does.. i'm just thinking about all those sites out there that use say UBB, vB, or some variation as their forum.. do you really think that they are going to want to toss out their forum just so they can run a portal? i think we would get a lot more people running the portal if phpBB didn't have to be the forum you HAVE to use with the portal.
i've seen a lot of discussion on the fact that phpBB and the portal should be seprate anyway.. and i've seen discussion that the phpBB group may not want to take a portal under their wing for various reasons..
please understand that i'm NOT
saying "don't use phpBB for the portal" b/c i'm NOT
saying that at all.. what i am saying is that people who use the portal software based off of phpBB should be able to have a choice to be able to run other Forum software like UBB, vB, or something else if they would like.. i'm NOT
saying base the portal off of UBB, vB or anything cause that would be just dumb...
just an opinion... and i hope i made it clear..
