Why reinvent the wheel?

I read this polishforums.com/support-the-project.html, and I wonder; why not go for something like vBulletin.
With free updates, tech support (email, phone optional), gobs of features and good security it is not a bad deal.

Don't take me wrong. I find this forum stable and fast and overall a pleasure to use, but vBulletin, with its small $85/yr tag would eliminate some of the maintenance costs.

Btw. whatcha running here? php?perl?

We don't want to follow the crowd; if people stopped at inventing a wheel humans would still live in caves ;).

A valid reason.

Oh, they still lived in caves after they invented the wheel. Some still do ;)

Thanks for the response.

vbulletin isn't as stable as one would think.. they are also rather prone to all sorts of bugs.

keep up the good job admin. :)
