i would like to build a small private forum .. abt 10-15 members. i would like to know if there are any free sites that provide the facilities for creating such a forum

im new to this so plz go easy on me


Of course there are! I used to use tagboard, www.tag-board.com , they are pretty cool, except you don't have to register (not sure if this is a good or bad thing). Tag-board is actually more like a chat engine, except it doesn't refresh the message box. If you want to pay, you can upgrade it to a chat that auto refreshes. However, you're after a message board. Just go to google and type:

message board free

That's how simple it is kids!!!!

Hint: Google is your friend


try , invisionfree.com

that is best i think so which gives u lot of features with unmetered BW, that is forum hosted on their servers.
