Why is MyBB free?

Not when it results in hugely cluttered and confusing templates. Allowing them is one thing; using them to structure the entire theme is a bit much.

When I got round to the template system, I found that to be the strangest bit. They have a massive global template (which I ended up splitting into header, navigation, logo, content and footer anyway) for IP.Board which, for me, is odd - maybe for performance? I guess I'm just used to simple stuff. I do like the way they manage themes though.

IP.Content is in a different class. Totally overwhelms vBulletin's effort IMO. I'm very impressed with that. Haven't had chance to plug in Nexus yet.

(And that, really, is why MyBB is free - because everyone here wants you to have a great experience, forum software and support and not have to pay anything.)

Because the developers are awesome? ._.

I guess they make enough to survive through donations though, but that doesn't count as being paid because it's just people apprec....


Well you know what I mean.

Donations do not go toward the team, instead, they are used toward the project (i.e, server costs, security audits, etc.)
