|Every thought about creating your own forum? According to [...] it is is easy to install and administer.|
It's easy to install and administer here on your free Frihost hosting package as well.
I personally wouldn't be drawn to advertising another paid hosts package on the Frihost forums though, as I would prefer to direct folk to the same options they can obtain here, free, with an established member base to ask technical advice from.
Oh, and phpBB is free open source software which is easily installed on your free Frihost server space - a win win situation
Of course, regardless of how you start out with a forum, you will still need to inspire people to post there and offer attractions so that new folks do to come to visit. Once they arrive, you certainly do not want to chase them away. Keeping a forum active is not easy and good moderation skills for example, surely is not a walk in the park.
I agree it must be difficult to run a forum, and although I have installed/played with phpbb on my own free Frihost space, it has been simply for amusement and educational purposes only.
I would not be interested in the time that must be involved maintaining a 'live' forum myself, and I imagine there must be some folk who, unable to think critically or make decisions based on factual evidence, would find it even more difficult to make equitable moderation decisions.
|However, it is possible.|
Absolutely, for any reasoned person with enough motivation and time.
...and we can do it all ourselves, free, here at Frihost, how cool is that
