I have been using vanilla for about a year now.
I recently had a SPAM issue and for the first time I creeped into the vanilla forum for help.
Over my life I have used many different systems going back to the 80's with the old BBS systems.
I love vanilla! Is it the best solution for forum software? Maybe. I haven't tried them all but of the ones I have tried I go back to vanilla because its simple, clean and useful.
I can't think of much I would change but after reading the community forum I thought it was worth saying THANKS VANILLA for providing a free product and continuing to improve it.
I hope at some time I can provide some time and help improve or build plugins.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
