I really appreciate how UPN is still a vB

Bulbagarden, Serebii, and Smogon have all moved to a social media-inspired BB system that's slow, script heavy and encourages low quality posting. Smogon exempted, it feels like I'm reading a forum of copy/pasted YouTube comments.

UPN continues to maintain a positively patrician taste in BB software. Kunos!

Did you mean to type Kudos but it slipped as Kunos? xd

I don't go to those sites so I'm not sure what that experience is like, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. VB is perfectly serviceable.

Ehh. Laying it on thick. This ain't no UBB. Or even phpBB.

phpBB was a pain in the arse. I have nostalgia for UBB but I can't remember the nuances of it versus later BB software.

I'm glad this site still uses vB. Most forums have changed and I hate that. This one maybe looks old, but it's functional and reliable.

the early-mid 2000s web design of UPN feels really comforting to me. even if it's starting to show its flaws (this version of vB was absolutely not made for widescreen displays) it reminds me of the time that i spent just living it up on a different forum in my heyday. that and i'm not staring down some soulless javascript-bloated intensely corporate webpage, which is really becoming apparent as the internet really gets consolidated

...i may or may not have strong opinions about the state of the internet

anyway yeah every time i look at a xenforo site i go "what the hell." it's got its merits and it's certainly keeping up with the times but also those things are beyond excessive sometimes. there's also the less common acmlmboard which is way more traditional but feels a little too "off" for me to handle, like it came from the berenstein universe.
