Bulleten boards

http://www.vbulletin.com/ offers a package that really are the best
bulletin boards I have ever seen. There are a few I subscribe to and
really have liked their look and customization.

vBulletin has many features that sets it apart from similar forum
software:

Blisteringly fast MySQL based backend database
Every aspect of the interface can be edited with the comprehensive
templates system
Importation facility makes it easy to seamlessly upgrade from other
bulletin board systems, such as Infopop's Ultimate Bulletin Board
Powerful database-driven search engine
Unlimited Forums / Messages / Categories
Full support for Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
Powerful administrative functionality. Posts can be
edited/deleted/moved/locked with one click!
User email notification of answered posts
Support for smilies, vB Code or HTML in messages (admin configurable)
Lost password auto email form
User profiles (editable by user)
Unlimited number of moderators per forum
User groups - give select moderators/users admin powers
Private forums
Word censor facility
Ban users based on IP address or email address
Integrated private messaging
Posts since last visit are marked so you can tell at a glance whether
there have been new posts in a particular forum
Moderation queues on posting and registration - check new posts
before they become publicly viewable and new registrants before they
can post

Just a thought, this board is free and does work well. The vBulletin
does have a relatively small cost associated. I thought I'd toss the
info to the crowd so you are aware of another option.

files area which Yahoo offers.

Re: Re: Bulleten boards

We went through the idea of moving the list to another service about two months
ago. I even had an offer of free hosting on Team.net. The overwhelming
consensus was to leave it as is, right here on yahoogroups. The "vote" was not
even close.
One disadvantage to a pure "Bulletin Board" type solution is that you have to
read your messages "on line". While this option is currently available in
YahooGroups, the vast majority of users subscribe to the daily e-mail digest or
the real time e-mail messages. I myself will often download the messages to my
PDA and then read them while sitting through otherwise dull meetings! Likewise,
