forum hosting options

A small group of online friends want to set up our own forum. Does any one have suggestions for a good free hosting option?

I use galacforums for my mod projects as well as other projects and it is pretty decent.


Working so, we will learn history as a tree knows it; we will climb into shapes printed in the seed; we will become time made visible, years made fragrant; we will make of concentric memory a stem of praise; we will inhabit daylight at a trees own speed; we will be travelers who remain, patriots to this ground.

whilst not inappropriate for the tech area, I think you'll have more luck with responses in a community area I noticed a few ahtonauts seem to have their own forum...

Helpful! 
I actually recommend going to 1111mb.com, getting a free hosting plan, then setting up your own boards with a open source board like PHPBB, YaBB, or ProBoards(I think). That way you can install and configure them to your liking. Just a suggestion though.

Edit:Sorry guys, I linked to the wrong thing.

Mod note: Please check your link, the above mentioned URI does not seem to lead to a valid site. ~M

I signed up with 110mb. Although I wouldn't call it great (at least not yet) I would rate it better than good. There's only a couple of issues that are bothering me.

And from personal experience phpbb2 is extremely easy to set up. There is no one click install, but 110mb does have an installation guide for it.
