I can remember when I was first coming into the forum game and wanted VB so bad but just couldn't afford it. I had to wind up settling for smf at the very beginning of things which wasn't bad and they did their job for a very long time. at that time id say that Vb was the leading forum software, almost every major site running a forum community was using it. Then all of a sudden it took a drastic fall to the likes of (at the time) IPB and then xenforo. so what really went wrong? I know there are people still using it, but it just does not seem to sit at the top of the forum empire as it once did.
