MyBB and SMF were promising until I read their licenses (not truly Open Source). Vanilla looked like a nice little OOP codebase, but the actual forum it provides is a bit anemic. I found PunBB only to learn that it had recently lost all its developers to a fork (FluxBB), and those developers are missing their deadlines. So I went from "can't find phpBB competitors" to finding a few that had problems, and I knew there were more competitors & problems I had yet to unearth. I realized that the Slashdot community might collectively have far greater insight. Is there a phpBB competitor out there? Is the license good? Is the community good? How's the feature set? What's the codebase like? If you have an opinion, I'd like to hear it."
