Help! Forum Builders

Recommended Posts

To anyone with experience starting and managing forums, i'm interested in starting my own for the gaming community I manage, and i'd appreciate some help in terms of where to get started. I don't need anything extravagant, and something simple and most importantly, affordable -- is what im interested in.

 

I've never built/managed forums before, so could anyone with experience please chime in here?

you can open a mumble server for 5 people if you need something private, then you can upgrade it to 10 or more people with $$.

If you dont mind spending a few bucks for a real good forum software then consider Xenforo.  Powerful, fairly shallow learning curve that I can help you with and lots of great themes and addons.

Buy an affordable domain and slap something like myBB / phpBB / XenForo / Some other solution on it. Most decent domains have a variety of options through their control panel to install some forum software, through an automatic process.

This has nothing to do with forums though? I already have a Teamspeak 3 server and its running on the VPS im renting from NFO.

I went with enjin to start things out. probably the quickest and painless way to go for me at this point. working on learning how to customize it all, now.

Yup enjin is fine.  Send me a link once you are up and running so I can take a peek.
