I did try searching as to why vBulletin was decided upon, and was unable to find a suitable thread.
I was just curious why the SDMB settled on vBulletin. We are considering putting one of the two packages in our intranet at work, and I am trying to see what the actual technical pros and cons are. And thus, I wanted to know what influenced the SDMB to go with vBulletin over UBB (like Fathom has).
The only thing thus far that seems really different between the two is vBB is much cheaper in terms of software. Was there a past thread that discussed pros and cons, or can someone tell me some of the technical aspects of why this one was chosen?
