We currently use vBulletin Message Board/Forum software at the Pittsburgh Sports Forum. The original One-Time cost of the forum software when we purchased it in October of 2009 was $180.00 for the vBulletin 3 series. vBulletin and the Pittsburgh Sports Forum have both upgraded to the more recently released 4 series which required purchasing a licensing fee of $180.00 (discounted for us, originally $195.00). This license which is good for the entire vBulletin 4 series covers technical help , updates, upgrades, add-on's and more. You can click HERE to see the pricing and specs.
