You should read up first if you don't know what your doing.

Are you going with VB or phpbb, or something else?

I hope mine doesnt fail, put quite alot of effort into it..

Na, if he wants to make one, he should try it - it's so cool being administrator - and you can tell everyone you have a forum.

Which forum board are you going to use?

Its diffiuclt to make, its either hit or miss. Normally its a miss... I've made several forums, even FOR LARGE GUILDS and frankly they just simply fail.

I'd use phpBB to start, its free. But the other problem is finding a good host, unless you use a remote host. But forums like CF for example, have been around for years and they have top listings on Google searches, and it hard for a new forum to survive. Trust me, I've tried many times.

Its very hard to make a succesful forum. I feel its hit or miss and a lot of word of mouth. Teen forums tend to fail, well because most of them ar etroubled teenagers, a forum full of troubled teenagers equals a terriable forum.
