#2, I plan on purchasing a license for The Ultimate Bulletin Board on my web site. Does anyone know appox how much space a UBB takes up w/ like nine different topic forums?
Our forums are currently using just over 4 megs of space.... we will not be deleting posts until it is MUCH larger then that... I love the fact that these forums are easily searchable and as such provide many things to us...
1. A forever growing FAQ created by the site owners... what better way to make sure the real questions being asked are answered?
2. A list of sites that are mostly hosted by FQuest and the feelings of these site owners...
3. An awesome way for us to keep in touch with many of those who have chosen FQuest in such a way that is relaxed and friendly. EMail/phone is fine but usually utilized when their is a 'problem'. Via the forums we can just 'keep in touch' in addition to helping with the problems.
4. The forums help us shape the goals of FQuest ... e.g. we want this server to grow and expand via the work of all rather then the work of 'just the owners'. It may sound 'cheesy' but we really want this to be a server that owned by all of the site owners. I really do not know how to say it right
At any rate.. we love the forums
They do provide the ability to delete and/or edit posts/threads easily....
They are not free -- but very worth the price.
