  • I'm Going to Build A Forum's Website

    Hi all,

    I'm going to build a forum's website. I'm going to start small with approximately five boards in a single category.

    Phase One: Homework
    Can anyone tell me the difference between a Bulletin Board, a Forum and a Message Board?

    Also, I've included a poll with this thread, please vote for which forum host you think I should use.

    Many thanks.
    11
    vBulletin (assuming there is a free version)
    54.55%
    6
    phpBB
    27.27%
    3
    FreeBB
    0.00%
    0
    Other (please state)
    18.18%
    2

    The poll is expired.

      Aw well, looks like phpBB and freeBB will be battling it out to win my contract!

      Anyways, whilst phase one is in progress, I'll make a start on phase two - boards and categories, I was thinking:

      Category: General Discussion
      Boards: Gaming/Internet/Hobbies/???/???

      Help me out with deciding the boards please ppl!

              I think a forum has it's best chance of success if it includes lots and lots of good porn!

                Wasn't it that you changed the forums that much that everybody got bored and didn't join back

                    LMAO!

                    I'd go for VBulliten, not free, but IMHO is the best.

                    P.S. Unles your going to target a certin group(other then aviation), I wouldnt bother. we have JP.net for aviation related descussions.

                          No, good FREE porn. Even better.

                          Anyway, I doubt any new forums would last long...
