I've visited your site before. It seems like a really big site.

Sadly, big-boards is down now :(

Big boards has been down for several years. It was a good ranking site. There’s another one that is still up called forum rankings. Not sure if there are any other ones similar to the way big boards was.

You're 1st on there, but I'm pretty sure Gaia Online is the most popular forum

You're right, it doesn't. I just looked through their forums.

They might. Back in the day Lanzer spoke extensively regarding all the changes made to phpbb2 at Gaia. His topic on phpbb2 optimizations really helped us and started us on our way to making phpbb2 much more scale-able than was originally intended. I think there is still some phpbb2 at the core of Gaia but probably not much.
