I am not familiar with message board software, but what I like out this one is the clear layout of different boards and folders, the ability to see all your unread threads, and the ability to jump the spot in a thread where you last left off. I also like how all the posts appear on one page. (Well, some are multiple pages.) I can't stand those message forums where you can only read one reply at a time.

Vbulletin works much like SMF in these areas. IPB does the same things as SMF mostly, but sometimes not the same way. We would not even consider a board did not have "the ability to see all your unread threads, and the ability to jump the spot in a thread where you last left off."

I liked the idea of a social network at first, but it just became one more place to check and so I eventually forgot about it. In any of these new softwares you are looking at, is there an way to build a more in-depth profile if people choose? For example, being able to upload photos or write blog posts within your profile?

It would not surprise me if there wasn't a mod for expanded profiles in Vbulletin. IPB tries to be a social network on its own, but its really there yet (and what they are doing makes it less of a traditional board) and will not be for quite a while.
