forums.do - Free phpBB Forums :)

Postby forums.do » Sat Apr 02, 2011 1:40 pm

Hey all,

I have recently launched forums.do - Free Forums

We provide everything you can ever need in a phpbb forum, with full customization of templates and themes. At the moment we have no advertisement shown on pages, although to help with costs this will be implemented in the near future, nothing tacky though.

Features:
  • Fully customizable style & template system, compatible with any phpBB styles.
  • Free style additions (You find a style you like, i'll implement it).
  • Free small template and logo modification requests.
  • Free logo hosting system.
  • Your own free subdomain (yourforum.forums.do).
  • FREE upgrade opportunities for active forums (free domain name, and more to come).
  • Totally free with very little advertisement shown on your page.
  • And plenty more!

If you're in need of some free forum hosting, forums.do is your perfect choice ;P

Please note this system is in it's beta stages, if you have any problems, please contact me via our forums or here on phpbb-seo :).

We will also do transfer from current hosts, if you can provide a backup. However any MOD's you may have installed will not come with it.

Thanks :)

Updates:
  • We now accept database transfers. Just provide a backup of your database, and your style (if wanted). Any non-template related modifications will not be reflected.
  • All forums now have 100% SEO-friendly links and virtual folders.

Feel free to try us out :)

  • 100 styles have been added to our styles database.
  • Upon registration you can now choose your default style.
  • The administration panel has been altered for simplicity. Mostly in the styles section.
  • International characters are now rejected in the registration process, this will reduce the number of SPAM registrations.
  • New forums are now created with an administration account with your current site username and password, instead of 'admin' and a random cataloged password.

Come join us today!

Hey dcz :),

I wish! Hehe, it was about time i moved away from a VPS given my other sites. It's a preemptive move, but it has to be done some time.

People are registering, creating there own forums, but not doing anything with them.

The system is fully functional, allows full style, theme, template editing so you can fully customize your forum, everything you could ever want. However people seem to register, then leave hehe. I need to work on techniques to get them working on their forums.

Adsense (or alike) revenue sharing could be a solution :?:

I have actually been considering revenue sharing.

That's a whole other system though, i'm quite happy to consider it, however for the moment i will be focusing totally on improving the current system until i'm happy it is as easy to use, and stable as possible. As displayed it's still in it's "beta" stages ;)

We have a ways to go yet :), and plenty of time i think.

I'm definitely considering that, something i believe other free forum hosts do not offer at this point.

Well, a part from the legal matter (though such experiences are already running and google is not against it), there is nothing complicated here.
Just need to store the user adsense id somewhere and to do the appropriate random to pick his or yours in the desired proportion before adds gets displayed. A matter of few lines of code really.

Of course, this was just an idea and is not necessarily THE solution, especially since it would not necessarily result in big incomes.

Oh i have no problem implementing the system, i can do anything i want in that respect.

There could be legal matters yes. At this point i would have to be using a different ad network anyway unfortunately.

And as you say, generally there would be minor revenue per forum, the only benefiting forums would be have to be pretty large given they're gaining only a percentage.

Food for thought though, certainly helps create incentive.

Cheers for your replies dcz, and thanks for allowing me to advertise my service here. I hope i can keep updating the thread with info :)

Thanks TACOS,

The past few weeks i've undergone random issues here locally, and have not been able to futher develop the system (Add features etc), and now i'm also experiencing more hardware issues right when i'm trying to setup some local virtual servers for some major testing on a multiple server system changes.

So regarding the site handling multiple servers straight away, that will have to wait. However new additions to the system will be made in the coming weeks after i get some hardware issues sorted.

I'm excited to get to work, but frustrated because basically i cannot :roll:

The system is totally functional, and i encourage people to test it out :).

Will keep you posted! More updates to come!

forums.do is now cross-server compatible! In an effort to ensure consistent fast load times and reliability, forums.do can now span across any number of local and remote servers! - All forums created from this point on are being hosted on a brand new Xeon powered dedicated server.

In addition, smilie packs, and avatar galleries have been added, we will also install any packs you like. More features to come...

We will also soon be initiating competitions for prizes such as free domain names!

Start your own free forums today! :mrgreen:
