I guess we'll setup both like you say. I'm assuming there are no other players in the running from my research.... it looks like you are the top dogs
This is a big big advantage of phpbb over most of other forums.. phpbb is much much cleaner.. i used smf for my forum for a year, it was fine and i was happy with it untill i stumbled over phpbb and ive never regretted my decision to convert my forum..
SMF looks crap, IPB is too bloated, VB is too expensive, bbpress is crap and none other free forums provide half as good support as phpBB.. If you want to bridge your forum search for 'jfusion' in google (i am not sure if i am allowed to post links here
).. it works sweet
