Dear friends,

I am very new to this forum. Please pardon me if this question has been posted before.
I am looking for some Bulletin Board software like UBB, YaBB etc. I know Java but
haven't done much programming with Perl or PHP. I am tempted to look for BB software
which has been written in Java. Do you know of any such products which are as powerful
as UBB or YaBB?

Also, for a novice like me which one is better to start, UBB Classic, UBB Threaded or YaBB?
Your ideas will be very much appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
MK

I'm from Arizona - the Phoenix-Mesa metropolitan area.

I don't recall how I found YaBB.  I've been searching for a free bbs for well over a year and when I first found it I was still on Geocities.  Tongue  I've kept it on my favorites list for... well... ever.  When looking for a [cheap] host, I tried to make sure I could eventually host something like YaBB and I consulted the requirements often.  Still, it took me a while to take the plunge. 

I finally did it last week.  I was worried because I knew nothing about Perl, cgi, CSS... plus I'm terrible at backing things up.  I just knew I'd end up destroying my site and turning away the regular visitors as well as any potentials.  Imagine my surprise!  This forum ROCKS! 

This is what I ended up with... http://scrapbookingresourcecenter.com/framespages/forum.htm

I first found out about YaBB from a web designer friend of mine that has used this board many times and loves it.

I'm from Estonia.

I was a member of one YaBB forum at first. When I wanted to try own MB, I found (Google) this place and here was everything I needed in one place together - from hosting to installation (not to mention sentimental reasons with geography Grin )

Im from Sheffield england.
I found YaBB searching for a forum that didnt need
mySQL which isnt supported on my server.
I must say im very impressed.

It seems far more advanced as phpnuke and yet it was far
less hassle.
Also a lot easier to edit AND there are far more mods.

Basically its more advanced and cheaper (for me) to host Smiley

THANKYOU YABB THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU

I'm big daddy switch, but sadly, my drivers license knows me as Dr. Juvenall Wilson (well, it will in October..lol). I was born Macon, Georga USA while my parents were visiting my uncle, taken home and rased in Cork, Ireland and moved here to Detroit, Michigan USA when I was 15..and it's where I still call home Wink

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. That's when I started diging around and became involved with several other boards before I grew tired of their crap. Then in mid 2001 (about a year after I started in this "BB industry"), I took a big leap and started using YaBB. After a few months, I  opted to try and give back to the community and become a more active member of the team. Then in late 2003, I was made an admin and now I buy and sell people like you all day Grin (kidding..lol Tongue).  Hard to think I've spent so much time here, but I wouldn't trade it for anything Smiley (other then a big sack of money..but that's a different story..heh)

What's funny though is when I first started posting around here, I was looking for some ideas on a Perl news script I was working on. So my long lost first post really hand *nothing* to do with YaBB..lmao.


Edited:
See, this is what I get for being slow..lol. As I went back to read what I've missed in this thread, I find eggmedia is from Macon too..lol. Oh well..Wink

1. I live in Berlin - Germany ^^

2. The first BB I ever posted in was a YaBB, and since then I've never seen a board software wich is as good as YaBB, in many things. Later I got my own YaBB and started to give some support at this board. ^^

I found YaBB through a chat website that was offering free webspace. Along with the webspace came a YaBB forum. I used the forum, and when the website decided to end their hosting, I bought my own domain and hosting and installed YaBB and have been using it ever since. Smiley

I came across YaBB SE about a year and a half ago after finding Snottyboi.net, a site hosting a YaBB SE Forum. I fell in love with forums immediately. Smiley

I ran a YaBB SE Board for a while, but after crashing MYSQL Data Base (and not having many users at the time, anyway) I scrapped it.

I then started maintaining a Blogish type site. After it built enough traffic and I had recieved a few requests for me to enable a Respond to Post option, I decided to move it back to a Forum base. After looking for YaBB SE again, I came across YaBB Gold 1.3.1.

And you know what?

It rocks;D

Hi.  I'm in Kentucky, and found YABB via Google, actually.  I hadn't heard of it, and was looking for an alternative to Invision Powerboard...which is rather heavy and costly. 

Not to mention it's not OS.  So that's why I am using it.  Not to mention it seems almost overly configurable.

So let's find out!

1) Where do you live?

2) How did you first find YaBB?



I live in California, and I find out about YaBB through my friends site (http://www.afghan-web.com). ; He said he really liked it and so I gave it a try and I am very happy with it.
