    There are tons of free forum softwares. If your a newbie, I am not sure if you will know how to install them. But look up phpbb.com or invisionfree.com

    I am just going to be honest here. Forums are very hard to run, and to get traffic to be steady, and stay. I wouldn't waste your $ on VB. If you see your forum takes off, and want to take advantage of VB's features, then you can change over.

    oh like what would be the difference between having a registration and getting a free one ? i woud like the site to generate money through ads as it is now i've gotten 30 bucks in 5 days with
    2,567 unique vistors and 4,711 visits , and 33,209 pages, again this is just from 5 days but would it be worth iti think i can grow more statistically wise.
