What are the "forum alternatives"?

So if Adobe really does start to come around and consider the fact that this "Jiveware" is not working out to everyone's satisfaction, has anyone discussed or researched the alternatives yet?

Obviously they have had their own internal research but it doesn't mean we can't help and make suggestions based on well functioning examples of high traffic forums that we may have seen on other sites.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_forum_software

Wiki has a section here (if the link works) with "subarticles" that contains ASP, PHP, and "Other" forum software comparisons.

It's not like Adobe is the only company that has a long list of high volume forums out there--what do others use?  I'm sure it's not Jiveware.

I know Ann, I agree with you about the forum quality.  I don't know how many customers WebX loses from their pricing plan (even they don't, honestly), but if it's too high and they're a well run business, the price will come down eventually.

We are experiencing growing pains (a lot of them)

We are not experiencing "Growing Pains" — this is Rigor Mortis …

You should be a comedian, really. (big obnoxious smiley, for email users)
