    I went to nominate Vanilla and notice they use Disqus ugh!

    "Disqus seems to be taking longer than usual. Reload?"

    I will try later, I never got confirmation , I wonder how many submissions one can make?

    I got the confirmation so it went through, If Vanilla is not chosen, I will sue someone !!

    lol...I'm also on the case with http://trends.builtwith.com/cms/Vanilla-Forums. Seems Vanilla is used by only 268 sites. Boy something is wrong with their data.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    I think that data is about the hosted or paid type for massive forums like PArchade, I am sure that if they counted users like us there would be millions

    Naw, it looks borked. WordPress numbers are fine. I also work on the Piwik project too. There is no issue there. In short , want to make sure when Vanilla wins the CMS Critics Award, the numbers look good :)

    Little update on the above. There is a bug which Gary at builtwith will be fixing. This is important because not only could it not detect that Penny Arcade was using Vanilla, it could not detect this forum was using Vanilla :p. all the other sofwtare i mentioned above were reporting fine. I know lots of people use the Built With lists to discover software, so this will help. I have also contacted http://wappalyzer.com/ too, so they wil now collect data as well. This will be the cherry on top when Vanilla wins the CMS critic award for best forum software and more people discover Vanilla, these services will capture it appropriately.
