It has long been requested - a forum about building forums.

Here it is. Thanks to rogerd for taking up the banner here.

Can someone work out how many years of expertise can be called on in this forum?

It must total hundreds if not thousands.

Great idea, thanks Brett and rogerd. Having run and/or helped build about a dozen Forum sites in the past, I'll be looking forward to the discussion.

Hey, thank YOU, Brett... building web communities is a great topic, and what better place to have this discussion than here! WebmasterWorld is certainly one of the most successful web communities by any measure, and we can look around us for a great learning experience.

Martinibuster, we're ready... bring 'em on. I certainly don't have all the answers, but between the community here and the ultimate community architect, Brett, I'm sure we'll get some great topics going!

This is going to be one interesting forum, one I am sure will be useful. Thank you all for creating it. There are few places that would even attempt it.

Roger, I was just singing your praise in the content & copyright forum.

I, too, plan to launch my first forum later this year and I'm just pregnant with ideas and sooooo ready to give birth to the conceived forum, ahem. ;-)

Thanks for reading my suggestion Brett! The only problem is, I'm going to have to spend even more time at WW now!

Brett, my question:

How can I get my hands on the scripting for the Webmaster World BBoard. Are the url's mod rewritten, or do you have an on-the-fly page building - or what ...

How does this board work, and is it available anywhere for sale (or open source)?

I have been searching forever for a BBoard with hard url's that spider easily.

Congrats on the new forum!

I can think of two definite topics...

1. Building forums, installation and design advice

2. Getting members. ('Great, you created a forum, now what?')

Good new forum.

Are we looking to talk about the technicalities of forums here, such as asking for support on setting up a phpbb forum for example, or just the building communities side?

Thanks

Neat ....corse you've probably woken up every troll on the planet too ....But it should be interesting ...
rogerd....good luck ..and hang on tight!

Eggy, I expect that we'll get into the technology, too, not just the "soft side" of community building. But for really detailed troubleshooting of an individual installation, the software package's own support forum (or their tech support) will probably be better and faster.

Very good timing!

I am having scruples as to whether I should add BBS to a site that I think will do well. This'll be more impetus to get the job done.

Rogerd - get ready, I think this'll be a busy place.

Niceone! :)

Excellent. Glad to have the forum and glad to see it in the capable hands of the always well-dressed, well-spoken, and thoughtful hands of rogerd.

Now, about that link from your PR7 page...
