Me and TimeParadox have both merged ideas....one of having a forum (me), and TimeParadox supplying one. So about a month and a half later....I've found out that being an admin isn't as easy as it seems. So far, we have only 13 members, and have already had 2 spammers posting links (thank God for the ban button :grinthumb !). I just cannot percieve how someone could manage a forum with a total amound of ~15,000 active members ! I realize that moderators are used, as in my forum (my friend), although TechSpot most likely has better security with VBulletin than me with PhPBB2....which I'm getting tired of with the lack of admin options . Altogether I have to say that I now realize the reality of things when it comes to forums.....what an adventure it has been with testing countless hosts and even creating ~6 different servers hosted by various websites, and creating a forum from scratch (which can be very, very annoying ). Although I do have the option of google ads to get money, but let's just say I'm not 18 yet....so that's out of the question....otherwise I would in a heatbeat :haha: ! I have tried PhPBB2, 3 Beta, and IPB so far, but I'm still searching for the perfect one... The good thing that has come out of this is some knowledge of PHP and installing and modding files through an FTP Client...which before my forum, I knew nothing about. The problem all comes down to this in the end though; money. I would love to have a VBulleting liscence, but I don't have $xxx.xx amount of spare money right now for one. I have thoroughly searched online different types of software, freeware and payware; new and old; servers and hosts...but I only have one thing to say....and it's to Julio....¡Buena suerte mi amigo !
