I have a forum, and a lot of folks visit it, but not many seem to want to post!

It isn't a lot of hassle (except for me after an upgrade), but then I have just used the fantastico one and haven't bothered to customise it. I don't think that is a problem though.

I think if your site suits a forum it is a nice thing to have. I suppose if you have a lot of visitors posting it may need more work to moderate. One of the Limebrook customers was visiting it every day in the morning, and loved it, so I made her a moderator - I don't get a chance to look at it until the evening. She was really chuffed, and does a good job for me. You may find something similar happens with yours so you don't need to do all the work yourself (sort of like Naval and others here I suppose!)

Hope this is useful
