    I like Invision quite a lot :D I think it has the best GUI. But then again I havent seen all of the different forum types :p

    vBB is the best. With phbb and invision you cannot even set the amount of thread views unlike vbullettin.

    I think Invision has the better GUI, more fancy shmancy. But I think vBullettin is more configurable, and more stable. And as for "fiddlin with it" (vBullettin), ya fiddle with it 'till it's the way ya want it. Then ya leave it alone.

    phpbb is nice, it used to have security problems but I think the phpbb team has cleaned that up quite a bit.
