GamersCircle Forums are up and online.. again
A while back, I started the GamersCirlce forums using phpBB, which was free and pretty easy to setup. There were a lot of great mods for it, but what I didn’t like about it was the lack of anti-spam and security, so managing the forums become more work then fun and I decided to shut them down.
Then about 2 months ago, I brought the forums back from the dead using Simply Machine Forums (aka SMF) as it was a ready to install script on my hosting service, but I found it lacking in features and support.
This brought me to the next step and the conculsion of getting a license for IPB or Invision Power Board. Thier support is great, they have features that I am looking for like RSS and much better spam and security control.
