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?
