So i was thinking I wanted to create a general **** website, with forums sort've like these, and even thinking
of using the simple geekstogo.com webhosting and domain name service ($15+5 or something close). After that I was looking to install some forum software. Something like php-nuke - although I hear that has some serious security flaws, and isn't all that great looking in my humble opinion. Even thinking of finding a few co-partners for the project. So I need a bit of advice from those experienced in what i am attempting.
a) What kind of forum software is appealing for large member sites?
- Nuke is a bit more site based, so I'm looking into mambo & YaBB. What else is good?
b) What kind of traffic does a site like this generate?
- Can I even get a idea from a admin on the bandwidth costs? It must be upwards of 500$ correct?
c) How can I get a site like this [Geeks2Go] seen on the web?
d) Can I get some advice from some of the more experienced forum admins of large communitys?
Your fellow geek, Cold as Ice
