    Yeah, that Unregistered guy is trouble. However, he is correct in pointing out this forum uses vBulletin 2.0.3.

    Once you decide what software you want to use for your forums, think about hosting. Are you going to host it from home? There are a number of hosting companies out there. Many of them are reasonably priced.

    Mmmm, phpBB does look amazing, I'd say ikonboard comes a close second. Older versions of YaBB looked good, but the new ones are plain ugly :/

    I'm sorry, it is common knowledge that women are hopeless with computers. You might as well start studying interior design

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    I also prefer phpBB over any others. If you want a forum that doesn't require a database, then you can get one at www.powerboards.tk. Its really nice, the person developing it is working on a new MySQL version of it. I'ver tested it for him and its really powerful and good looking.

    Hermit... You first better sign up for a free board (forum)... before starting your own by investing lots.... So that you get to know what it is like to run a forum....

    And if that Avatar you are using is really you.... Then you look real pretty...
