phpBB is not funded. However the income from the ads you see at the bottom of the forum was used to buy the new server a couple of months ago. The hosting however is donated.

I See, I Was Just Thinking, As Other "Free" Message Board Site, Make You Have Google Ads On The Forums. Which I Guess Helps To Pay For Any Fees.

We all have running costs which we need to cover for, and if ads can help us do that, the better. Doesn't make the product less free.

Speaking of funding, who do I need to get a hold of to talk about funding and supporting phpBB and perhaps getting a banner or link up?
