My daughter is curious how does one start a board like this?? she just wants to start a discussion board likethis with different chat boards... I guess what she really liked was those smiley faces and anim legends.

Arfcom is a custom code, or so I gather, but sites like Full-auto are a commercial program you can buy, and a company will host it. You specify user rights and privileges, the rules, how may forums and what they are called. Thats what i gathered.

Try [url]www.ezboard.com[/url]. She can set up her own message board for free.

Pick a topic that will attack users, but not flood you off and leave you with bandwidth charges. Get a good host... (I use [url=http://phpwebhosting.com/]PHPWebHosting[/url]) Then go to SourceForge to find a Board program that is free. Or if you don't want to search, try [url=http://www.phpbb.com/]phpBB[/url] which is free and widely used, so you can get help with questions as they come up. Lastly - You need the dedication and denile of self to maintain it once you have started a "Community" your users are now depending on you.

Pretty neat how I found this joint. I registered back in Aug. 2000. While I was searching for domains to register I would type in interesting names such as AR15.com and AK47.com. Plenty of times there was nothing there but one day a whole message board popped up and I registered because I had some stuff to sell. Is there any way one can tell what member# they are?
