Hey I'm new here as well. I, myself, have started a forum based site not so long ago. I use free forums @ www.phpbb.com . There are also forums that you can pay for, I guess they should be better since you have to pay for them, those are vBulletin @ www.vbulletin.com and also Invision powere boards, I am not sure about their site. Hope this helped :cheesy:
Hey, if you need a free forum board and want to avoid the hassle of starting one yourself i suggest you try http://www.proboards.com/index.html
very good free forum boards, i use them for my site that i just started www.ckita.com. if you find this helpful please sign my guestbook! :)
For Free i say PHPbb and paid VB but like most of the site owners use PhpBB so its more Vulnerable but they always provide patches Phpbb is easy to use with lots of mods , always backup your database and update your forum.
