Get a Domain name, hosting, and phpBB. Just do it yourself. You will feel more accomplished about it.

Reasoning with these type of people won't work. We all know this.

Thats the point. Nobody goes to "Free forum" sites. They're a dime a dozen.

If you can't do it right... then don't do it at all.

I have to disagree with you digitard. I`ve seen great forums made with Simple Machines Forum. OP I`d go with them over any other forum.

I'm not talking about the cost of the actual forum (free, paid like VB, etc) I'm talking about the http://forum.blahblah.com generated sites.

SMF is a great forum (free)
PHPBB3 is a great one (I use it myself)
VBulletin is great (paid)

It's not a matter of wether the physical forum is free or paid... I'm talking about subdomain hosted sites which is what the OP is talking about. He wants a generated site for him (aka subdomain hosted) w/o having to pay for his own hosting, etc.

Those sites pretty much always are a big fat fail.

Your best and easiest option would be to use a free forum provider. You could try http://www.forumotion.com. They provide free IPB 1.3 and phpBB hosting with unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth.

I have had experience with them and I think they are pretty good as there are a quite a lot of skins and modifications available and so on.
