I've looked at the 3.6.9 bug fixes and feature list; IMO it's not worth the hassle of upgrading to it. It doesn't really offer any world-changing improvements and it'll be a pain to set up.

I say stick with what we have unless you're really prepared to cough up ~80.
New is $180.00USD.
Renewal is $40.00USD per year.
Lease is $100.00 USD per year.

Well, AFAIK, upgrading the PHP and MySQL Database is free...but It's my thoughts. I'll never be able to install a forum, today.

I don't know...I mean, is it so hard for them to make cash in the first place? I mean, even Invision...you buy it, but I guess it much less expensive and I think you don't have to renew each year. You just buy a license...Vb, it's just plain money making...

I have told before to switch to Invision.

The user interface of vBulletin from both the user standpoint and the administrative standpoint blows phpBB away.

Others would disagree with that.

PHPBB has updates and support.
VB may be good but not worth the hefty price tag.
