Big Board Rankings

Forums Rankings: This site ranks online discussion forms by number of posts and other criteria, so you can see who has the biggest forums. No idea how accurate it is or what their methodology is, but…

According to this, the winner is an anime community called Gaia Online, with a staggering 1.1 billion posts and 8.7 million members (about the population of Haiti). The first one I recognized was Something at 57 million posts and 102 thousand members.

I did a little (seriously unscientific) analysis on the entire list. vBulletin seems to be the most popular at 1,104 installs, Invision at 245 installs, and phpBB at 220.
