vBulletin is one of the leading commercial forum software packages, which TWC currently uses. It used to use Invision Power Boards, but that turned out to be insecure, as was evidenced by the hacker attacks leading to the May 2005 crisis. During those attacks, Ogre's Net asked for help and were told to not use IPB, but to switch to vB instead. When that was done, the attacks stopped.
Usually references to TWC crack or, simply crack are used to imply that Total War center has an effect on its dedicated users similar to the effect created by dependency creating drugs.
The words are usually used when a long time member is discussing or simply stating his decision to leave the fora completely.
