I loathe java-based forums the most though.
track a thread? phpbb has that option-- watch for replies. and that is a very useful feature, allows you to keep track of a thread for replies and such. really good for busy forums

yeah ipb does have a lot of features, and i find a lot of them very useful. i dunno, just my preferability i guess.

1) I dunno I prefer IPB's interface over phpBB, which ive never liked

2) companies make forum software to provide people (like you and me) a forum. they do have the simplest basic forums out there which im sure you can find on a site like hotscript.com (or something like taht). then they make forums like ipb, vb, phpbb, etc which offer you a lot of useful features. they dont get in the way of anything and usually you can disable them.

i guess i just don't like phpbb, but ill live with it

In IPB, its not even displayed there. There is a button next to new topic called options that brings down a list of things you can do to the topic.

never tried out phpbb's interface (or if i did i cant remember)

ipb2.0's interface (admin) looks promising though

we've talked about different forums softwares before. but i've done so many hacks to this one that i'd hate to lose all my hard work.

although, i'm thinking about coming up with a new hacked version of the forum with more and better features, so we'll see. we'll have to look into what the most cost and time effective solution would be.
