I have a project that needs a forum. One with the long haul in mind -- ie 5yrs minimum. I would have gone straight for vbulletin years ago, but have read some bad things about the current version 5. Im not keen on hosted solutions, and phpbb seems that it may still be lacking features even this far down the road with their project.
What are your thoughts?
What is the best feature-rich, robust, long-term solution for community software?
