    Nice find indeed. So we now know that the first version of vBulletin was written in four days! Interesting.
    You're spending millions of dollars on a website?!

      It doesn't stand for Visual, Virtual, or Visual Basic. Simply, it is called vBulletin because it was originally created for vb-world.net.

      That is closer to the truth than 'The v means nothing'.

        It no longer says "v stands for nothing."

          Who updates that Wiki anyway? It seems pretty up-to-date.
          Congratulations on the death of vBulletin, Internet Brands.

              It's a community based document which means anybody can contribute to it.

              Unfortunately it also means some people try to spam it.

                  I know what Wiki is, I just mean that particular vBulletin entry. Certain people are keeping tabs on vB.

                    Check the history. That'll tell you about some stuff...

                      The v does stand for nothing but it does have an origin in that it was designed for vb-world. So technically wikipedia is correct.

                        It would be a really great idea. ^_^

                          Again? Seems like this 'v' would become Jelsoft's enigma.

                            Sorry for bumping this up again. But I remember reading that since vB was pretty much uBB using PHP & Mysql, they took the next letter of the alphabet and used "v". So, instead of uBulletin, vBulletin.

                            AKA, it means almost nothing, just a way to brand a software.

                              No.

                                The "v" simply means: "VERY much better than UBB."

                                I tried UBB years ago...it was a bugger to set up and get running. The other forums I tried (including vB and a couple other popular PHP ones) were basically ready to go once they were uploaded and populated with the database login info.
