I'm in the process of setting up a community forum for a site that will garner a very large userbase over the coming years. Due to this I figured I was locked into one of the bigger forum softwares, i.e. vBulletin / phpBB / SMF / etc.
Really, though, the simplicity and awesomeness of Vanilla is what would really work best. I'm just wondering how well it scales to hundreds of thousands of members? Can anyone point me to the bigger(est?) Vanilla forums out there? What is performance like when under a constant load?
