    IPB all the way. mainly because it's easy to set up and because most of the forums i visit use IPB 2.0 or 3.1

    I prefer IPB rather than phpBB. Althouth we will have to wait and see what phpBB3 is able to do and in what way is it improved. The biggest problem IPB has is the fact that v2 is not free... So that's one point for phpBB.

    Refering to mods and skins, skins are much better IPB ones, at least ExtremePixels skins, but talking about mods, both of them have nearly the same. I wouldn't even consider SMF.

    YEah the smilies are really bad and some of the features are not even good! One thing that I liked was that you can get mods of your site you can acces there mod's list from your forum.

    i suggest using phpbb, because it's easy to use, and you can find loads of hacks for it, which are easy to install.
