I am the President of an artist guild and we're currently using Yahoo Groups, which is not meeting our needs at all. I'm wondering how difficult it is to do programing for a forum like LttD. I'm somewhat computer savvy (more so with Macs). The guild forum wouldn't need to be nearly as large, maybe 5 areas to post under (new member introductions, general discussion, announcements, etc.) I'm hoping to do this myself, so I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction, maybe by way of useful books or websites. Finally, if I was able to do the program, what do you think the annual fee for a small forum would be?

Thanks!

The link isn't working for me. It says UBB Error/Access Denied. BTW, I like your new avatar.

Well, the content, the gist of it, was http://www.forumcircle.com Webspace specifically for forums, for free if necessary, with advertising, as well as the tools to help create forums, etc.

Invisionfree used to be the best free forum host but it looks like GOONS have hacked it and ruined it for now.
