Forum or Bulletin Board is a medium for your small community to talk, discuss, share tought or just hang around. You might need a workable and nice forum for your school, university, club, college, game server or even for fun.

It is pretty easy nowadays to setup a nice, good looking, well functioning with some gadget preinstalled. As for my case, when my game server grow, I need to detach my game server forum to other hoster (not hosted by me anymore). My criteria :

  1. Good Looking
  2. No Ads (graphic or text)
  3. Fast enough
  4. Cool gadget
  5. FREE!

After scouting around, I found this one. http://www.forumotion.com . This hoster meet my requirement pretty well, and so far (after 2 month running with 2.3k+ posts), the speed and reliability still top notch. No ads and it provide tonnes of templates and skin (supplied by hitskin.com). Best of all, you can apply hitskin template / theme with a single click …and viola..updated. Changing theme at this forum as easy as changing wallpaper at your desktop.

This is my Solarose Forum …used to support Solarose Rose Online Private Server community.

So..how to have this kind of forum in 5 minutes?

  1. Visit http://www.forumotion.com/en/create-forum/
  2. Register
  3. Apply fav skin
  4. Touch your admin control panel
  5. Start layout your forum hierarchy.
