    I know I have some friends in high places, I need a place to host my new forum for my upcoming " pvp school project" I dont have an offical name yet, its hard to pick a good one but for now that will work.

    Anyway I'm looking for someplace where I could have my own little forum and post a couple topics for people to read.

    Thanks.

    Cash,

    I just did a google search with the intent of getting you a couple of links, but there was literally a whole page of results for places that host forums for free.

    Search for "free forum hosting"

    Good luck

    Would the rules of your forum allow any type of pic to be posted?
     
  4. I could enable sp.net for you and make you admin if you want? I would need to clean it up a bit first mind, there's a few harem scarem things in there. I'm not sure but I think I get 10 forums for the small amount I pay a year, but I would need to ask DeVore to set up a fresh one if you don't fancy sp.net.

    Hey shalimar, see up there where it says "friends in high places"? It should have read "really awesome, friends who happen to be the GM of NEW"

    In short, that would be awesome.

  8. It's disabled right now, so it can't be viewed. I meant not fancying a site that's been used for Siege in the past, though I believe most players already have a login to it.

    SP net was never really my site, I just took it over from Ghost when I wanted a forum for NEW, and sp.net came with it. I can delete all the history on it and you can start from scratch if you want, your forum rules etc, your mods and what have you. It's up to you.

    If I'm not mistaken, he's talking about the site you host the NEW forums. Not the other sp.net
     
  10. Sp.net is the main forum, NEW one is the second one made (he probably means some of the links on NEW being broken) His would be separate to mine, hehe. I q'd him so I'll enable sp.net when he gets back to me and he can look at it and decide what he wants to do.

    check out guild portal. It's free, and you can use their forums, as well as a lot of the other nifty tools they provide...la

    The problem with free guildportal is there is a pretty big restriction to the number of posts you can have...with an even mildly active community, you hit the cap really quick. On the other hand, the 6 month hosting for guildportal is pretty reasonable. It caters to actual guilds in MMORPGs though and those special features it brings (interface to game character databases for example) may not be helpful to a different type of forum.
