I noticed that a lot of PhotoPost Classifieds users also have vBulletin.
Why is vBulletin so popular on this site?

Vbulletin is the top selling forum product in the world I would dare say ;)
vbulletin users probally make up 30-40% of our customer base.

Well I can not speak for all.
In my case I needed for the heart of my site to be a messageboard and all other Add-ons integrate to 1 user DB with 1 login . At the time, I used EZBoard untill the popups and Ads were so bad It was better to do it yourself. There was vBulletin 2.0, UBB?? (cgi only), phpBB 1.2. I did the free phpBB thing for a year and it sucked for my needs @ the time.
- I seen sites w/ vBulletin and have 2-3 million posts with 200k members w/ 1k online.
That was good enough for me.
- It will take a load.
EX: (I wish was my site - lol)

I can only reiterate what Zachariah has said, I have used most Forums but needed something solid, secure and good integration into a Gallery system.
After using other forum scripts it is a tad daunting to start with but once you get the hang of the admin panel it pans out nicely.

I think SMF (Simple Machines Forum) is an overlooked gem! I've recently tried this free forum software and designed my whole site around it. I've also integrated all of Photoposts software

SMF is probally the best FREE FORUM.

Will have a look at that, sounds interesting.
BTW snicker3, gave up waiting for your site to load, oh so slow on dial up.
