I'm interested in why people leave mybb for SMF?
« on: January 31, 2009, 03:54:58 AM »
Hi all,
I looked at Mybb at one stage, and it has a fairly nice feel and look to it. Just wondering why some people chose SMF over Mybb? Admittedly, it's not as big a community, but that could mean far more users, and not necessarily say much about how many moderators/helpers there are for the community. So it might even be a larger helper to user ratio?

Anyway, glad of your feedback. phpbb3 has definitely gone right out the window, but Mybb is still on the radar, even if its blip is somewhere off left of field...

It wasn't as customizable as SMF, it was also hard to find themes for it

Yeah, I guess if there are not as many themers in the community there's not going to be as many themes. However, what wasn't as customizable?
