Simple questions

Post by Emiliano Fierro »

Hi everyone, I'm not new in this forum, but as you can see in my profile I'm just 16 years old and I have some questions
1)The first is related to my age:
What features would not be available for me?
2)The second is related to creating new communities,
Let me explain that, this is not the first time I use phpbb see my profiles below:
https://forum.princed.org/memberlist.ph ... ile&u=2764 and other account I couldn't find the link
What is necessary to know before using phpbb, I tried to install it but I did wrong some steps, I want to make a gaming forum instead of searching and joining existing ones
3)And the last question is related to recaptcha
As I wrote before, I want to make my own forum, and I would like to make it just for humans…
I expect your answer, please don't be so hard with me, I joined time ago, but it is my first post…

None
Once you download the software you can do whatever you like with it, it's yours.

You don't need to know any coding. You just need a host (preferably paid - you can get them very cheaply). No other technical skills are needed. If you get stuck just post in the support forum and we will help you out.

Good luck. It's a hugely competitive subject area with lots and lots of well established sites already out there.Probably one of the hardest sites to get off the ground to be honest.

phpBB has built in Q&A antispam. Make a question that cannot be searched such as something to do with your logo, or that requires some logical human understanding to solve. Do not use 2+2= or what colour is the sky.

I need to tell you at once, I'm unable to make my own forum right now, it might be ready over 2027 or later, however it is worth to know more things before starting.
Well, my point is that I would like to add more specific fields such as "country" as required instead of optional location, and also required age. And I want to add a message like "we need software engineers to admin the forum"
You may think I should wait until I make my forum, in that case I will be back in 2027
Thanks no matter 2020 or 2027, goodbye…

It seems that you have plenty of time so here’s a copy of the user manual which should answer most of your questions: 3.2 User Guide.

What are you doing to your board for it to take until the year 2027 to be ready?..

if you come back, think about this:
there is no reason you have to wait until 2027 to start a board.
why would you think that? is it about having money to do it?

just FYI, you can get hosting and a domain name for less than 50USD a year.
if you gather that much money and get started. you can probably earn a little money on your board either with ads or by asking for donations.

first, you have to figure out if whatever your subject matter is would be popular enough to get any members.

also, there are places online that you can click a couple of buttons and have a board up and running in seconds.
I don't suggest you try to grow that board since you will not have any control over the files, database, etc.
but for a practice you can have one instantly to play with.
