    What's the "v" in vBulletin?

    These things just hit you when you're bored at work...

    I can confirm that.

    When I first joined vB, I wondered if perhaps the 'v' was there to somehow subliminally suggest an evolution of UBB (s, t, u, v for the alphabetically challenged) but John assured me that the 'v' is only there because it looks cool...

    Does it stand for victory? "VictoryBulletin"? Doesn't sound right.
    The V doesn't stand for anything. It's a V so the abbreviation for it is vB, like Visual Basic, to fit the original forums John created the software for (VB-Forums).

    I can't believe that John never told anyone what the "V" in vBulletin was. It's real simple and if you know where to look you could find it.

    The "V" stands for "V"ictory.

    LOL
