Not bad.

Don't use myBB software. phpBB is much cleaner, and with the release of the new version of phpBB (3) soon (its in beta), it will be the best bulletin board software around in my opinion. But yeah, get some paid hosting.

You're joking right? Please tell me you're joking. phpBB is the worst software I've ever seen for a BB system. It's old, bloated, and doesn't even have features that are considered standard these days. It's also a gold mine for hackers.

With the release of version three, we'll see a even more bloated code then what we have now, and even though it's new, it still doesn't have what standard webmasters need.

Mybb is fast, efficient, and safe forum software that I regard as one of the best free alternatives on the web.

You;re kidding right? I've used MyBB and let me tell you, it's MUCH more safer and easier to handle compared to PHPBB...that just causes problems and crashes. Like Jon said, it's a gold mine for hackers. It doesn't come eqquipped like myBB.

phpBB isn't a gold mine for hackers. I've used it on all of my previous forums. With the new release, phpBB has even more features, is great looking, simple to use and very clean, even phpBB2 is okay, has a clean admin control panel and doesn't look, erm...blah... like myBB.

Version Three, bloated code? phpBB ain't bloated. If anything, myBB is bloated. phpBB has a good user interface, myBB is slower, phpBB3 has one of the most intuitive administration panel. They work out the software bugs quickly.

myBB, like SMF and phpBB all have bugs... and security problems, but thats why people do something called updating their BB software.

Take a look at vB. In three years, they've gone through version 2, all the way to version 3.6. Take a snap at Mybb, in two years they've gone through a on par phpBB board all the way to a feature fledged board that many compare to paid solutions. Having such features as AJAX, subforums (should be standard), quick reply (should be standard), and info on who posted in what on the index forum(Once again, should be standard). All of which, phpBB don't have.

Looks, don't get me started. Yes, while phpBB looks average for a board, Mybb in my opinion surpasses phpBB in every aspect of design.

But when a software has been stuck on the same version series for over a year, it's something to consider when looking for a feature rich software.

MyBB is not slower, neither is phpBB.

Just like Mybb.

Who cares if phpBB2 isn't up to standards? When phpBB3 comes, it will be.

Even phpBB3 isn't.

Take a look at some forums that focus on the subject on forum software. You'll see the truth.
