Hi,

I am looking to start my first forum and I would love to use YAF as I understand SQL/C# but I am trying to be realistic in know that a forum could take a fair amount of time to maintain and I am wondering if the popularity and the ability of hiring someone cheaply/quickly to amend/install something on VBulletin gives it a big advantage.

I was wondering are there any large forums that you know of that use's YAF? I know its wishful thinking to thing about owning a large forum but I ideally don't want to have to go through the process of moving from YAF to VBulletin down the line.

Any thoughts on this issue?

Thanks,

Al

All forums have some scalability issues. Yes, there are large forums using YAF.

No need to convince anyone to use a forum engine, but just a recent surprise from vBulletin
This is a HUGE forum.

Due to a recent issue with vbulletin which they very nicely didn't send a warning out about, some images were inserted at the bottom of threads. I've dropped everything back to how it was a few weeks ago and taken care of the issue, so it shouldn't happen again.

I should notice that wonders never stop there.

They did that a while ago, yes. They wanted "subscription" features.
