thecoalman, thanks for the extra info and advice. I already installed myBB. It looks pretty good, but no product is perfect. Believe me, I was torn on which bulletin board to install. Afterward, I was almost wondering if I should have installed phpbb after all. I didn't mention it, but I like how phpbb is table-less, a big bonus. Good to hear about the tighter security.
I plan on setting up some other bulletin boards in the near future for other niches. It would be a bit more of a learning curve, but I'm thinking of setting up the next 2 future forums with phpbb for one and SMF for the other. I'm not sure about the added expense of Vbulletin at this time - not for a brand new forum anyways. I'm kind of new to forums and forum marketing, so I'm still learning.
And hey, if Mybb doesn't work out, I'm definitely going for phpbb next. I was a bit unsure about phpbb at first, but I'm quite reassured now that it will work fine.
