I came across YaBB board software in late 2001 when I joined a YaBB forum at billyboyd.net.  That site no longer has a board, but for the first year I participated I watched how the administrator and moderators worked their magic, and when I created bucklebury.net and desired a message board program I considered no other alternatives than YaBB.

Ever since I opened Bucklebury Tavern, I have realized just how easy it can be to customize and administrate a YaBB forum, even with very little Perl experience.  The scripts are well commented and the hierarchy of data files used is easy to understand.

I have recommended YaBB to many of my friends who have their own servers and sites and desire a forum service.

2) How did you first find YaBB?

While writing some Perl which was rusty that time I found YaBB, got hooked, wrote my own version (Platinum Release), about 25 mods for various SP1.x and are now over my ears into SP2 development Wink

From the US.  I looked around for a free forum, got a few suggestions on where to look from a computer friend.

I think Tucows pointed me to YaBB.  I think, if I remember, my first YaBB was SP1 - it had just been released.

  

It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.&&

I'm from Milan, Italy but i live in Cornwall, UK, where the weather is not as miserable as in Manchester, but, in return, there is no football at all (at least no football worth watching) Tongue

I came accross YaBB while I was setting up my gf's band's website and they wanted a bullettin board to post about gigs and stuff in general. I installed it and instantly (well...almost) loved it and now I am also trying to help (unfortunately not as much as I'd like coz I have to work as well áLips Sealed) with YaBB2.

*Maurizio looks at his position on YaBBforum and cries*


The weather in Cornwall shouldnt be that different from Manchester - welcome to Great Britan, where the football is world class but the weather is not.

I am from Norwich, UK (near London)

I found YaBB on the support forum for About Web Services *they use YaBB*

After you eliminate all of the possibilities,
whatever is left, no matter how seemingly impossible,
must be the truth.

Im from Baltimore and I first found YaBB in February. That was the BTCo.net forum that I first found. In around June or July I joined here as MrWill. I changed my member name to NABI-Artic-9620. I lost the password to that member name so I had to rejoin this forum.

I had a friend who had a pretty popular board among tech geeks here in Louisville. But he was using the unstable and costly Invision Powerboard.  And the default skin no-less!  suckage.

He however turned to the darkside of suckage, so I looked for a managable alternative.  So far...it's gone very well.  It's pretty managable, but I haven't quite figured out how to fully integrate the board into my layout...on it's own it does very well.

Needed a BBS for my site and found one in the perl resorce index (something like that). I had probs so I came to the community.  YaBBs been great, and I've enjoyed it.

btw, I was born in the USA but I'm really canadian too. It's ok, you don't have to understand...
