We've boasted about how we stack up to the competition, now let us prove it. We're not going to fluff things up. We won't be gentle to ourselves or the competition. What we will be is fair and impartial. We know that deciding what message board to use is an important decision. Often, converting between boards is difficult or impossible if you are not an experience programmer (trust me, I know!). So here are the facts. Make the decision that is best for you.
Notes about this chart:
I am very much aware that these charts do not reflect the newest versions of Ikonboard and Ultimate Bulletin Board. However, I compiled the charts from personal experience with versions of the software that I had used extensively. If you wish to compile a chart for the newer versions of either board, or you wish to compile a chart for a different piece of board software, simply mail me with the charts. Likewise, if you see anything that should be corrected, or can fill in a blank for any piece of software, let us know.
Note also that all statistics are based on the initial release of each piece of software. There
are some very good hacks/mods websites for Ikonboard in particular if you are so inclined that way, but
those changes will not be included in this chart unless they are officially adopted by the developer as
a part of their releases.
