        Okay just curious I haven\'t used that one so I dunno anything about the technical side of things, but I use this forum for some of the resources I use on my own forums; http://z10.invisionfree.com/CAUTIONTOTHEWIND/index.php?

        They might have things compatible with whatever myfreeforum uses

        invision...heard that name b4 too.

        and I don\'t know anything about the technical side of things, never been more then a global moderator before, and that was 11 years ago and only briefly, with an admin that asked me to help him run a forum then went awol after a week or two or something and the board had to close before it got started.

        b4 that id only been a mod on now defunct billgolberg.net fan website, and briefly a sub-forum moderator on topropetalk.com which I don\'t know if that site is still running or not.

        voshi recommended me the myfreeforum one since I was clueless how to make one and frustrated trying to repeat 5 rules.  she said she\'d been admin b4 and would help me set up the forum and then I or someone else could run it.

        but she never came back online that night and then when I left at reset time and decided to try making it to surprise her by getting it started already, she came online and mass mailed guild and mailed me saying she was quitting

        so I lost a friend it seems

        and now don\'t know what to do with a lot of the things in admin panel or how to customize look of forum.

        because I don\'t know how to use code or edit or enter it or anything, and it seems you have to know code even to change the forum color.

It depends on the forum host, proboards most recent update has made it a bit more user friendly. I don\'t know alot of coding myself, which is where caution 2.0 comes in - there\'s a ton of premade coding that people have created and shared to allow others to use it just depends on if myfreeforum uses the same kind of coding that\'s available. The only 3 i\'ve had experience on admin type things is proboards, invisionfree and jcink - but proboards is where i have spent the most time

As an alternative you could just put together a facebook group, no coding at all needed. That\'s what we\'re doing in my guild right now If it works out we may switch to a forum later on but I don\'t want to put the work into building one until I see the facebook group getting used enough to need it

        invisionfree, I think one of the boards I used to be on ran on them.

        proboards ive heard of can\'t place where or why

        myfreeforum uses phpbb2
        its other variant myfastforum uses the newer phpbb3

        hope this is what you were asking since I don\'t really understand your question of what code they run on or how to know.

        and it hasn\'t been any work at all to set up my forum yet, it set it up for you, and because I\'ve used and moderated forums before I mostly know how to set the administrative settings to try to prevent most issues/problems.

        only work involved seems to be if I want to change the style/formatting of the board, like how the buttons and headings look and background page color and background board colors and font type and size and color, etcetera.

        things that should be easy to change because they are just formatting, not changing anything about how the board operates, have to know code to change.

        there are like 20-40 premade styles you can choose from or start from and edit if you know how to edit the code.

        so far just using the standard subsilver template seems to be going to work fine, and I can always change the colors/formatting later.

I don\'t want a facebook group because facebook uses real names and has tons of my info on there I don\'t readily give out to people.

        When I joined facebook you had to actually know people and have them confirm it to be friends, and it was only for people who belonged to a college/university network.

        so I have a lot of info on there and am very careful who I add and what I let them see.



        my main issue with having a facebook group though, is that a group is just like the old facebook wall feature everything all jumbled together and no way to sort it search it or organize it.

        Forums are far more organized, you can organize and even move/rearrange them later anyway you want to do so, and it says you can make a website as a companion to your forum if you want, and there is something called portals, which looks to be another word for expansions/add-ons/additional features you can add to your forum too, and I haven\'t tried any of them yet but it looks like they are all free too.

        plus on forums you can have custom ranks and titles and avatars and smilies and all kinds of things, and have more room on screen to read what you are typing, and the ability to actually format what you type and actually have it in easy to read paragraphs and separated out, where as facebook has an annoying habit of when you hit the submit button, removing all the returns you entered and jumbling everything you typed into one lumped up mess.
