Anyway, I'm thinking of starting a forum basically because on another forum I visit you can ask a question and because it's not very well structured your post can be on the second page before you know it and never get noticed. Obviously that isn't the only reason as I'm also interested in the subject, there's a market for it and I would possibly like to have a go at building a community.
However having never started a forum that's where I'm hoping some of you could come in! I really like the look of xenForo so that would be high on the list but what should I consider before possibly starting out on this? Obviously I know its not a case of install the script and 5 seconds later you have a thriving community so I would be grateful for any advice you could give.
