The 3 'real' fora that I own are:-
1) My Extensions
2) My Music and HiFi forum
3) My wifes 'friends' forum
1) is done for fun (if you can call swearing at lumps of code fun
2) is mainly for music recommendations. (so I get as good as I give)
3) Its for friends.
Like others have said, not everything has to be 'money making'. Some people like to buy beer/women/drugs for their fun. How much does that cost compared to hosting a fora of two? (my 3 fora, one test forum, several static sites including family history costs me ~£0.26 a day. Less than a chocolate bar/coffee/newspaper. Not bad VFM IMHO
oh i see
is there anyone who get money from their forum? actually i want it, at least for paying the hosting
So is the purpose of your forum just to pay for it self?
