My lovely and talented partner had an idea for a new forum on Friday night. She emailed a few dozen people who would be the target audience for the thing, and most of them responded quickly and were supportive of her proposed scheme (her concept filled a niche where no forum existed, so I wasn't surprised). Saturday morning around 10 a.m. she decided on a domain name. By 11 a.m. (really), the domain was registered, her new XF forum was purchased, uploaded, set up and running, using a style she downloaded here. She spent some of the rest of the day tweaking the installation and poking around, and on Sunday morning she opened it up for business. She has never administered a forum before. I should probably mention that. This is just for anyone wondering if XF is difficult to use. I would say, no. No it's not.
