I was just wondering, I really like the looks of this forum, and I was just wondering what software was used to create the forums, and whether or not it is free. I was thinking of *maybe* creating my own forums, and I just really like how this forum looks.

it is free, but if you want someone to set it up for you, then you have to pay. You also have to pay for extra stuff, not sure wwhat extra stuff tho. :D

@Xaser

Scroll to the very bottom of the screen, until you see this:

Powered by phpBB 2.0.6 © 2001, 2002 phpBB Group

Then click on the first phpBB.

That would not be phpBB anymore, it would be perlBB :P and BTW, there is no sense in doing so.

phpBB is totally free, although you will probably have to pay for access to an SQL database.

In Germany, you can get an MySQL DB, PHP support and 50MB Webspace for about $3 per month ;) I think it's not that expensive at all.

But paying from outside Germany will get problematic then, mostly, if you are talking about € not $, thu € 's conversion ratio to $ is nearly 1.0.
