hi guys, I really love XDA, im on it all the time, But i wanted to make my own forum just like this, except its focused on just 1 phone, Is there any possible way to create a forum the same as this and excellent as this one?
If so, Can you give me a step-by-step walkthrough? Cheers (P.S, like i said, exactly (nearly) like this, so i can recruit mods,etc, mysql, php etc, anything, as long as its like this forum/website)

cheers,
wilbso :):):):):):):)

well there are lots of free websites that allows you to create forums which you can manage as you like or create one on your own with phpbb, vb etc with your domain. If its a forum, you can assign mods, database or just anything else.

Simple. I've made a forum before.

Buy vBulletin or another forum software. Get yourself some hosting, according to the specs. Install the forum on the server using the manual. Then just start tweaking the settings and get it noticed.

Hello !

Well... Good ! But I guess you can do much better with a Forumotion's free forum !
It's the best free forum hoster, which offers a lot of possibilities. You need to try !

I beleive the recipe is 2 parts vBulletin, 2 parts contributing users and 8 parts trolls....

Mix well and leave to simmer for 9 years....

Good luck.

Of course it did. Forums needs users and by only focusing on ONE device, the forum becomes a ghost town when a new version gets released. Its not a sustainable model at all.
