    Anyone notice how EZBoard forums are drying up? Must be because it's uber slow and pop up hell.

    i think we're better without EZboard, there's plenty of decent free boards out there

    The main reason people like EZBoard is the simple fact that they not only provide the free software, they also provide the servers to run your forum on.

    Of course, much like free webhosting these days, companies are failing left and right.

    Still, if you really want to put a forum up, go find a cheap webhost that allows CGI scripts and use one of the free forum software packages available. It's what I did. ;)

    I am not looking to start a forum. I'm just upset that the fashion forum and several goth boards have died :(

    Well, then tell them to get off their butts and pay for real hosting.

    It's actually not that expensive for smaller sites.

    It's powered by the tears of depressed elves and fairy folk.

    We interrupt this important thread for a bit of goth-joke spammage.

    I don't like ikonboard, doesn't allow for thread moving.

    Isn't there another free board besides ikron that's pretty good? BTW do they use php, and how much space do normal forums take up? I'd like to make a forum someday, but I doubt I'll get enough traffic to get anyone posting on it, and BW only gives me 20mb

    no matter how much I try, I can never get my message boards to work. I've tried Ikonboard, phpBB, YaBB, I'm just not cut out to upload anything other than html and image files..... /me runs away crying
