    Anyone here run a reasonably big board, or is it just kids trying to score (pathetic) points off of each other?

    There are lots of people hear with big boards I saw someone with a very very successful role playing forum using phpbb3. Even though I don't like role playing it was still very impressive. There are lots of others with massive boards as well.

    I however have a very new forum hence why I am hear asking questions and reading allot, (should be marketing).

    I don't think that it is fair to say that younger people hear I am 16 are pathetic and trying to score points off of each other.

    What is your measure of a "big board"? Some people say its 350,000 post, some people say its 500,000 post, while others say its 1 million post.

    There's some big boards there, yes. It's a shame that site you linked to is so poorly kept these days. I'm not a big board owner, but I'm not pathetic. And not all forums have the goal of being big.

    Try thebiggestboards.com

    Big-boards.com is dead in the water...they don't do any updating there. It's pointless.
