Anybody remember Big-Boards??

Post by JLA » Sat Oct 26, 2019 8:09 pm

Anyone here remember the Big-Boards ranking website? Apparently they shut down several years ago. Are there any other sites similar that provide ranking of forums?

Thanks

yep, I remember it. GIA was usually at the top back then, but phpbb.com was up in the rankings for posts/members etc. at one point.

Yes, GAIA Online was #1 - with over 1 billion reported postings. Lanzer from the site contributed alot of info about phpbb2 from their experiences. I'm curious just how much phpbb2 is really left in their site..

Yeah, I remember reading alot of speculation about that - and even Lanzer's comments and postings about their changes made me think that too.

His postings were a tremendous help and we a great starting point for our site.

We've changed our board considerably - but it is still all phpbb2 based at the core. We've just made some improvements over the years that has helped things run better under the circumstances.
