Have you ever used a free forum host? What one did you use? Do you still use it?
I did the same sort of thing, using pretty much all the free forum hosts out there. Now, I wouldn't dare go use one
I used forumotion for a long time but don't any more.
i never really used forumotion, but i have tried freeforums just to see what you actually get but its pointless, because you get lots of adverts on your forums and a big fee to export your database if your want to move to paid hosting.
Yeah freeforums is horrible!
They ain't the only ones that do this but you may as well just pay for hosting yourself. Cheaper in the long run.
I know but I've tried freeforums and decided I hated it more than the rest.
Why was that?
Just that the others one I used seemed to be better.
What made the others better?
Less ads, better support, better features(like forumotion add extra features to help you out) and more...
O ok, I don't like the phpBB2 free forum hosts.
I prefer the mybb free forum hosts.
O ok, never used them, only used myBB on paid hosting
When I first started foruming, i used forumotion, will never use it again.
@Subz I used icyboards which was pretty good because they always added plugins and themes quickly after requesting them.
I used invisionfree back in the day, like in 2005 or something
What was invisionfree like?
I do mybb!
free forum host doesn't mean that you're newbie :/
