    So I'm sure you folks miss the amongst.us website, and this website isn't holding it up. If you guys could find a new free forum website I can use, tell me.

    This website uses phpBB, the old website used XenForo.

    I'm really not too great in this area but if you don't mind subdomains you could use one of the following:

    Enjin
    Weebly
    Proboards

    I made a test website for Proboards. Definitely the wierdest.

    http://testthing.boards.net/

    Then again, this is probably not what you were looking for.

    Enjin looks promising. I'll try setting up one there.

    Awesome! Glad to be of use. As a tip for using enjin, there are modules for virtually anything you want to do. If you have an idea, see if there is a module for it. Good Luck setting it up!

    Like how the test website looks? Or? Sorry, I'm not very good with websites. I know literally nothing about coding. The only thing I'm good at with computers is solving problems. lol

    I've been tinkering with my test website in Enjin and so far so good, we might migrate there.

    Are you sure there's no time limit or post limit or whatnot?

    I'll go explore my test website and look it up etc. I'll try to locate any issues like that. As far as I am aware, you can set the default max amount of posts. Could be wrong, but we'll find out soon. PM me the link? Very Happy I'd like to see what you came up with.

    I'm not seeing anything that really restricts Enjin. The only thing that you need to consider is your community. The website reportedly cannot handle more than 25 people online without causing lag.
    Then again, unless you plan on constantly having 25 people posting on the forums at the same time, Enjin should work great. The other thing people complain about is bad templates, but personally I like them.

    There's a 12 day trial on premium currently in effect.

    http://thethingrevival.enjin.com/

    When that's over, I'll check how bad free is.

    I've been reducing a lot of the bloat (shitty template), and I'm so far liking it.

    Yah, I had to get rid of alot of modules before it looked good. Going down the blue and black route I see. I'm pretty sure the free version has an ad somewhere. Hmmm
