It's been a while since I've created a thread here. So, I'm planning on making a forum which is of course, a general themed one. And I was wondering if I should go with XenForo because of how feature-rich it is or MyBB because of how lightweight (!?) it is.
I am someone who likes to do stuffs for the long run so yeah!
Also, I am good with both the softwares but I need something which can be edited a lot (like NulledBB, which Aoki did a great job).
I have a few tips for you. Starting with the software, go either vBulletin or Mybb and drop the concept of XenForo before it is too late. Secondly, get a proper niche as a general themed forum will die within a couple of weeks.
I like xenforo. It somehow just feels "pro". Can't really explain it. I wouldn't use it though without license because most hosts are swift to shut down such websites. But you claim to have a license so use it? Hosts won't really bother you for plugins and themes.
