    vBulletin has issued some updates recently so maybe they took it down to do those?

    It was working before 6AM EDT, but was down when I checked again a bit before 7AM. They usually announce scheduled downtime well in advance, but there was no such notice last night.

    It's the complete site that's down not just the vBulletin board.

    A ton more info on large format specifically. APUG's LF section is semi-active, LFF simply expands on it so it is more active overall..
