I was looking for a quick script to let people post messages or feedback on my site and our Systems Admin told me to check out phpBB. I wasn't looking for a forum and when I got it installed I wasn't really sure how I liked it. But I starting tinkering with it and realized how cool it might be to have a full blown forum on my site. So a few tweaks hear and there and what do you know. Had myself a forum. I love it and I'm addicted to it as well. I've joined a few other forums since that don't use phpBB and I'm just not impressed with them.

What I really like about these forums is the ability to have complete control over the forum as an admin and allow moderators to have some control over what's going on as well. The code is written very well. And I love the few options regular users are given. Edit posts, quote posts and what not. Oh and it's great to be able to allow members to view certain areas of my board but not reply or start new threads. Work perfectly when you want to make announcements. It's just a solid board and I recommend it to anybody who wants some sort of forum or message board. And the installation is soooo simple it rediculous 8)

You may ask your question in "neutral" forums, e.g. @ http://www.webhostingtalk.com (General Chat)

I would recommend to download and install it and to try it out yourself. 8)
