Yes, completely run by volunteers, it's a hobby. phpBB software is release for free, and is free, and will always be free.

Welcome to free software.... :-)

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

phpBB
Drupal
Joomla
WordPress
Linux (!)
Mozilla
and many thousands of others...

All free --- all created by community contributions. What's more you and I are free to do what we want with them. Many of them make money -- many people around them make money because of them.

Expect the iceberg to continue growing... and growing... :-)

What is it our business if the creators and team members of phpBB make money? Where I come from, its rude to ask people how much money they make.
