Most of us are familiar with vBulletin and Xenforo, but there are other platforms. Here is an intro video for a forum that is transitioning today to a platform called Huddler. It incorporates a number of things we have on our wishlist here, and has some good organization tools. For example, I like how "stickies" are displayed at 3:54 in the vido, very compact and clean. At 5:22 is a nice scroll bar to find specific pages in long threads (instead of only seeing a couple pages before and after the page you are on, the way it works here). 6:34 gives a comment about the fact that users have space where they can save images in an album; those can be used for developing your own personal page ("member page") on the site, or to keep a folder of pix that you may want to post again. That system also has a functioning ignore feature (not mentioned in the video). There are things I prefer here- we used wikis instead of learning centers, and we have some wonderful features and navigation tools, but if XenForo incoroporates ideas from Huddler it can become much better.
