I have a site up and running and started out using a link to a msn group as our own 'message forum'. msn then started playing up, not allowing messages to appear, allowing membesr to join, and not allowing others. Anyway, after several complaints from members (I run a slimming club/site) I set up another forum with ezboards. I think the boards are great, but in the last month I've only had 11 people join. When I asked my members about joining they all replied saying that it was far too complicated, so they gave up.
When I have used other forums (like this one) joining is really easy. Does anyone know of any good forums that I can use. Ideally I would like one that is easy to use, no advertising, simple to join (give yourself a username and password and start posting....I will moderate the board) I am happy to pay each month for a good board as the 'forum' thing is essential for my site.
Any help/advice greatly appreciated!
