A good time I'm in this forum, but I never answered to these questions. Time to repair the forgetting

I'm from Sofia, Bulgaria.

I'm a long time member of a web forum running YaBB. Now we decided with a few buddies to make our own forum and it will be on YaBB of course Smiley

I dont know how far this thread goes. I remember something like it years ago!

But I have been using YaBB since before  YaBB 1 Gold - SP1 in the NYC area. I have created so many forums (not just on YaBB but on other platforms too) for so many people over the years, I have to think that I did  a lot over the years, and I still find YaBB to be the better forums for all things I have done.

Thought I would add my little story.

Location: Westwego, Louisiana.

I actually found YaBB when I came across another website that was using it. (that little link at the bottom of the forum works!) Smiley

I first ran into YaBB back in 2000 when I was browsing for an answer to a perl question on one of the old news groups (I *think* comp.lang.perl.misc) when I ran into a post from Zef about the project.

If I remember correctly, I believe I searched "free chat forum software" in both Google and Yahoo back in 2002. I think YaBB may have been at or near the top of the list for each search engine.

Note: Even today in Google, YaBB is number 6 on the 1st page of results with this same search string. But it's really number 3 if you don't count the paid results, which I prefer not to count.

In Yahoo it's number 5 in the list on the 1st page of results. That's excellent!

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Northeast of Portland, OR.

Found YaBB how?
When looking for forum software a couple years ago I found I needed one that a Perl Monger could get her head around, easily modified templates and able to be integrated into a Perl driven web-site. YaBB was it.

I had tried out a number of PHP-based 'solutions' and they were either impossible to set up  properly, the instructions were written in Martian, or my hosting service just couldn't handle them.

Didn't have that problem with YaBB. Uploaded it, set the permissions, ran the set up and Voila! a working Forum!

  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

I am in Australia - Gods own country  Grin Grin Grin

A mate of mine had a fishing forum on YaBB that I moderated.  When I set my own Camp Oven Cooking website up I decided to create my own.  Been going since around 2005.  Have looked at other forums but YaBB is for me.

How I found YaBB?

Can't remember if it was while I was trekking in the Simpson Desert and found it accidentally.

Or tripped over it while Camel-Riding in Central Australia.

Or smashed into it while it was crossing the road. (Or was I crossing the road?)

Dunno! Can't remember?

2) How did you first find YaBB?

I was surfing the web, looking for message boards, and Yabb was the first one that seemed to have all the features that I needed for the SIMM I am running.
I am the Executive Officer for a Star Trek Simulation. We had been using a SMS system where you log in and post, but posts have been getting lost when more than one person have been logged in at the same time, so I was tasked with finding a system, but I couldn't get send mail to work, and then the Captain found a free system WITH ads on a free server, but it immediately had server overloads, while I pay for my server space (hosted website). Got the send mail problem solved once the weekend was over, and got Yabb set up, and the rest is history.. he's still in charge of e SIMM, but I'm in charge of maintaining the message board. I haven't done anything like this in over 20 years, when I ran a Wildcat then WinServer BBS out of my house (phone line) way back when.
