It looks very nice, though I do think a few people are jumping on the bandwagon too quickly. I am anticipating some more backend details!

Really I've loved XenForo's threadbit and display profile pop-up and page. I would guess thats awesome but that forums not popular yet.

3 years of disappointments doesn't constitute intelligent people jumping on the bandwagon. I think it's safe to say the developers involved have a good track record and for a starting point they've done enough to peak the interests of customers not happy with the vb 4.0 version.

I saw the site , and the script , it uses too much Animations and mouseovers lol , the script is full of mouseovers and animations tag allover the place , also it seems , everything has to redesigned and phased inorder to use the new script

Yes , vb4.0 Is dam The worst thing ever , all reputation vbulletin earned in vb3.x releases just reversed after vb4 releases .

But you should say There are a 10000s of forums using vbulletin because it has 10000s of Modifications which are already there and for a new script to earn the reputation of "vbulletin killer" surely WILL NEVER HAPPEN , IN THIS ERA ,

Because , most of the people will not again invest money in a new script + many people who have been working for vb3/vb4 now like myself on my forum , will NEVER Change to any other script , but surely by this addition it will surely make xenforo a rival of vbulletin , but in turn will help us making vb5 the Greatest Software possible
lol

Yes, I agree with you, though it's still a start-up and calling it the "vBulletin / IPB Killer" is a bit extravagant when we've only seen the front-end.

What popular site isn't these days? Facebook is loaded with JS effects and people love it. I don't think XF overdoes it, personally.

Yes people let's stop calling it the vB killer. That will justify itself.

On another note the js scripts aren't extravagant. They are used smartly.

Actually the thousands of those modifications were made by the developers here and most of those are hanging around that site now.
Given how good the backend is of xenforo, it might not take very long for most of the good mods to exist there too.

Anyway, if nothing else, its good to have some sort of competition to vb. It might compel them to fix vb4 bugs faster and make it better.

I'll keep a close eye on it, but I've been with vBulletin for 7 years (1 / 3 of my life!) and I am not about to abandoned it so soon; sure the transition to IB was awful, but I still think there is time for absolution.

Luckily I'm only in the position of a developer and don't have a community at stake of my patience. Others aren't so fortunate, so I understand why people are welcoming XF with such vigor.

Knowing Kier and Mike, I have faith that it will be good enough of an upgrade for my site, and that I don't have to use this outdated forum software anymore, or upgrade to that huge lack of quality version 4.

Well, I just took a look at the new Xenforo forum script, and I must say it looks disgusting.

Honestly, what is so great about Kier new script?

Make your eyes open and think first ... XF has many litle (and great) features that are better than on a vb4. The style is minor matter ...
