I remember using vBulletin a few years ago in software/domain development related fields.
The system is robust, customizable and you can add loads of features to it. I assume they maintained the upper hand after these years.

I know SM forums were very limited at the time (even for the forums I managed) because it was free and anyone who was serios in creating a community always used vBulletin. It was a no brainer.

Have any of the admins/mods looked into this already? Or should I research it and creat a post with pros & cons?

It wouldn't make much sense to do this right now as Epochtalk is being written from scratch. Theymo's could've done that years ago by just buying a vBulletin license.

To be honest, when I joined the forum I was amazed it wasn't vBulletin and that's why I asked.

Epochtalk seems like an interesting project. Is there a plan to use this instead of the current SM forum?

Of course, Epochtalk was made so Bitcointalk could use a better forum software than the current SMF, read here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=523070.0. Bitcointalk on Epochtalk preview is already live in beta.bitcointalk.org. I believe we're just a few steps away from fully migrating to Epochtalk.

Cool! I though this wasn't a project dedicated to BCT.

It's nice to see that new software is created and fully customizable for BCT.
