YaBB is 5 Years Old Today
Jul 5th, 2005 at 2:08am
Post Tools
It was 5 years ago today that YaBB announced its first public release of the privately coded bulletin board script.  On July 4, 2000, what is now known as YaBB Original Release was published on yabb.ru by Zef Hemel.

Today, YaBB is proud to be the predecessor and inspiration for many systems like Ikonboard, Invision Board, YaBB SE, and Simple Machines Forum.  YaBB was one of the first messaging systems for websites written in the Open Source standard, and probably the first in Perl in the modern non-threaded "forum" style.  It is now one of the few remaining in the Perl language, and certainly the most popular of its type.

While other systems (typically written successfully in PHP with MySQL usage) have surpassed YaBB in website usage and popularity, YaBB has stayed afloat despite its slow development time.  This is largely due to its personal and supportive community now on www.yabbforum.com and its very popular mod program and community at www.boardmod.org.

We invite you to keep your eyes peeled over the next week for some exciting changes to YaBB.  If you've been an active member of our community lately, you'll be able to guess what some of them are.

Celebrate with us on the United States of America Independence day, conveniently also YaBB's 5th birthday.  Half a decade gone by with millions of users.

For those of you that don't know, Zef Hemel started the YaBB project in 2000.  Please let him know that YaBB is not "dead" by any means (as suggested in his personal blog) and inform him on what's going on with YaBB and how you are involved Smiley http://www.zefhemel.com/archives/2005/07/05/yabb-turned-5-yesterday

Congrats, all...

Smiley

See the "support specialist"?  That was my idea.  I was the first.

That's my contribution to this project.  That and a lot of posting here...

Those are my two cents Smiley

Yeah, happy birthday YaBB (better late than never)!

I've been using YaBB since 2001... YaBB 1 Gold - Release. Never used another system as I simply love YaBB. And never will use another system. I'm also registered here since 2001 by the way  Grin
