Largest vb forum

What is the largest vb forum that you know of? I know there are lists of large forums, but those are unreliable and crappy.

I don't care about how many posts a forum has, that caring about how quality a forum has and which we can get from a forum. That's important!

You never asked for my list of them... Good to see you're trying to expand your education though.

The lag has nothing to do with the number of members or posts, it's everything to do with 757 requests for well over 3.5MB of pageload. The page is ridiculously bloated and it's not the db calls doing it - it's the hundreds of images they're calling.

In common they have:
  • Speed. Uncompromising speed.
  • Millions of posts. All currently highly active.
  • Older vBulletin versions (Mostly 3.8 although there is one v4 and the 2.8.9 you've seen)
  • Me as a member (and admin on two of them.)
