I vote IPB, gotta love it. It's secure, it's what most people use, and so are familiar with it, so they won't be worried about signing up to a new type of board which is different from what they know. I'm thinking of making a new graphic designers community website, but I'm not willing to fork out the money on IPB in fear nobody will use it. So if it's only for a few people, perhaps it's not worth the money. There is a free type of board I heard of recently that looks really impressive. I can't remember the name of it though. I'll let you know when I remember pp.gif

I was really hoping you would lean more towards phpBB ... It llooks like it would be a 100% more customizeable ....

The source of IPB is totally viewable (once you've bought it, of course - I merely mean that it isn't encrypted or "encrypted"), so there's no way that it can be anything but 100% customisable. Of course that doesn't mean it'll necessarily be easy... pp.gif

Edit: Actually, I quite like SMF, which we use as the Web2Messenger forum software. IPB is arguably better, but SMF is the best free forum I've found.

That's the one I was thinking of! Yeah, if it must be free... SMF is my answer too!
