Is the SDMB related to City-Data forums ? Just saying there are a lot of similarities. Both are based in Chicago and both have the same quote feature. Even the emoticons are similar…
Maybe they are running the same software?
vBulletin is one of the major message board software vendors out there - lots of boards look similar if they use it.
City-Data Forums is a part of Advameg, Inc.
It’s the same software we use, vBulletin. This style is the system default.
vBulletin is pretty popular. Otherwise, no other connection at all.
