    Why isn't there a in-depth history of vBulletin/Jelsoft? I haven't really found one...

      Well, I think a complete history of the software, founders, developers, Jelsoft, and anything relating to vBulletin would be a nice feature on this site.

          Well, Jelsoft as a company was founded in 2000. vBulletin was initially a PHP/MySQL version of UBB.threads, but has evolved quite well since then.

              You mean ubb aka ubb.classic these days. Begin a ubb user in the old days I watched this thing take shape (as an outsider), it has come a long way!

                That wiki has lies. I will have to explain what the v really stands for and that the answer isn't nothing.

                John has UBB and rewrites it in PHP since it is killing his server at vb-world.net. You take the v from vb-world.net and append it to bulletin and you have vBulletin.

                That is more appropriate than "The v stands for nothing".

                  OK but what the 'v' in vb-world.net then stood for? And it's been confirmed by Zachery & Wayne that it means 'nothing, nothing at all', so you can't really blame the Wiki editors for following staff posts.

                    The v is from Visual Basic.

                        Why would it stand for that if the vB has nothing to do with Virtual Basic, though? I always thought it was short for "virtual," as in "virtual bulletin board system."

                          As far as I can recall both Kier and Scott (but who trusts scooty? really) saying that the v meant nothing.

                            Maybe you should have a history page?

                              vBulletin is in PHP but vb-world.net for which it was named was a site about Visual Basic.

                                Hi there,

                                Is vBulletin one of those huge things that was initially programmed by a teenager up in his bedroom? Or was it initially programmed by an Indian for freelance work at $0.10/hour?...

                                why is it called vBulletin?

                                what made you guys choose "vBulletin" ?

                                Does the 'v' stand for anything?

                                sry for my questions, but i'm just wondering...

                                Serious Question: ubb.threads vs. vbulletin
                                Grendel
                                Hi,

                                I'm using ubb.classic (formerly known as UBB) for more than 3 years and want to switch to a MySQL-based board.

                                Beside the price (vb=160$, ubb.t=229$) - what are the pros...

                                I love vBulletin and UBB 6.


                                No Bashing, Just wanted to say I like the new vB for php and mysql sites, and UBB 6 for CGI sites.
