The software while still in it's infancy comes from a good core foundation and it still has some feature sets that are to be added later. You can't ask for better support even IF you paid for it. That's right, free support that beats paid support of other software's. Upgrades are frequent and developer is always working to improve the current features and go above and beyond what's expected to please customers.
I run a modest sized Ultra-based motorcycle forum at http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums with around 16,000 members and 650,000 posts. This is my third forum software in 5 years and I've been using UltraBB for about a year now. Board features are superb and creating your basic forum up is really easy. The Admin features are a piece of cake to operate even for beginners setting up new forums. More importantly (to me anyway) the support is the best I've ever had anywhere. I'm not particularly adept at CSS and templates and I have received great assistance at no cost to me from the UltraBB owners. We get to deal with real people with real names and not someone hiding behind an alias. They are particularly very helpful even with newbies to creating forums and the fellow Ultra forum owners also go out of their way to assist newbies and one another in the very friendly Community Support forum. I can safely say that Ultra is now my permanent forum software. BTW, I have no connection with UltraBB (I don't personally know and never even met the owners) except as a happy customer.
I have a fairly wide experience of running forums, starting with freebies and then graduating to paid for and paid hosting and I have to say that the experience had left me quite bitter about the lack of response when it came to getting support and when support was available I had to put tickets in and just wait,, sometimes hours, sometimes days, and of course there was always a premium to pay. Then I chanced across UltraBB and Data1, what a difference. This is what forums and hosting should be about. Great software at a very reasonable, one off price, with free upgrades. Upgrades which are driven by members wishes and not on a take it or leave it basis as I have found so often before, that's when upgrades were available. As for support, well, you can do no better than visit the UltraBB forum and read actual users comments. I am made to feel as if I actually matter, and that my forum, and any problem it might have, is a top priority task that has to be attended to as soon as possible. Finally I cannot praise the software, the hosting, and especially the staff at UltrBB highly enough.
