Does anyone know of some well designed sites using PunBB? There are probably millions of sites running all kinds of cool templates using VB, but all I see with PunBB is the basic template.

I know I know...you're going to say why not VB? I like VB or what I've seen of it, but I just don't have the money to spend right now on the license. Maybe some day.. :D

I've never even heard of it :D

http://www.punres.org/ has some styling resources.

Ohh...well it's suppose to be up "up there" with the free forum software. www.punbb.org if you've not already googled it.

PunBB is really nice. I've been very pleased with it (as someone who has used vB, phpBB, and SMF as well). If all you need is something lightweight, it's great. Light on moderation abilities, and takes some hacks to give it things like PM capability... but it actually scales pretty well.

Check out http://punbbig.shacknet.nu/ (which is actually down as I write this)... it lists the largest PunBB installations out there in terms of users and posts.

One of the nicer ones: http://www.macaddict.com/forums/

And here is a rather simply skinned installation I have running: http://forums.awscms.com/index.php

Thanks! A couple very nice looking sites there. Yeah the one was still down, but I'll try to view it later.

Did you develop the AWS CMS?

Yes, and no. I own it, but I have a programmer (co-owner). ;) So I didn't personally develop it.

I just thought I'd show off a new PunBB installation I have set up: www.railsforum.com

KelliShaver (a member here) did the awesometacular skin. :)
