    If you were to ever create your own forum software what would it be like? How many do you think would use it? How many developers would be helping you? Would you charge people to use it or would you keep it free?

    I've owned over 5+ sites ranging from using free to a lot payed scripts.


    I had a lot of great members but all left for unknown reasons.


    Now I help a fellow member on here run a hosting company.

    I wouldn't do proboards, it would be a mess if you think about it on the coding and whatnot.

    The tagging system could be better for it, but I wouldn't do "proboards" I would take the tagging system rip it and start fixing the codes better on it.

    I never have either. But mine would be 50/50 incorporated to Admins and members I would make it to where the admins had a easier interface with an appearling touch to it.. More Admin tools like a chat intergrated chat or something in the admin panel. Im sure that can still happen if someone wanted to put the time to put it in. I would have alot of features in the Admin panel off the view of the members. You have the option to pick versions with the features you want in it. Allow for some customizations within codes and allow for easier editing and developing for the admins. and have a better system for the moderators mine wouldnt be cheap but it would be the best it would blow VB, IPB, WBB, and Xen out of the water
