No idea, I just want a board that people can go to. Something easy to set up.

It's just cos at the moment I have this crappy Bravenet one which doesn't look very nice, is a complete pain to administrate and you can't ban anyone on it. Also threads can get "lost".

http://www.worldcrossing.com<P>no pop-ups, but you can only post 3000 posts pro thread(it's not such a bad thing though since you can make as many threads as you want)

I downloaded some files from phpbb ... I have completely no idea how to use them, what anything of it means or anything for that matter. I just want a decent message board that I don't have to basically learn another frigging language to get started.

irma, no-one in their right mind would post over 30 posts on one thread in my board let alone 3000.

I'll check that out.

eugh that world crossing forums look almost as bad as my bravenet one.

Looks like I'll have to shell out £XXXX to get a decent one, I'm not even bothered about pop ups I just want a decent forum!
