    Best host?

    I need to move my mybb board to a new host as the free host I'm currently on forces an hour of shutdown a day. Plus their contracts are 3 years long for paid. Any suggestions for a good host? Requirements; Preferably free with choice to upgrade cheaply. Paid should be month by month contract...

    Community Drama

    Majorly so. Lost so many members due to the forced move and having no way to contact them. That and all my work that went into the forum was down the drain.

    Do you have a Netflix subscription?

    I still have a tv from my childhood. Has a vhs player in built. Haven't switched it on for years but don't want to part with it as I have some old vhs recordings and other tapes that aren't available on dvd or blu ray.

    Do you have a Netflix subscription?

    I don't have a 4k tv either despite my partner moaning at me to get one. The TV I have does it's job fine enough.

    Do you go bowling?

    I think the last time I went bowling I was a young teenager. The only bowling I do is video game based. The last one being the Tekken bowling add on on Xbox One.

    Thunderstorms

    I like them. I like the sound of heavy rain. I find it soothing. I also love seeing the flashing lights and lightning. Even better if I can get a decent photo or footage of it.

    phpBB/MyBB and other forum software question

    So, basically I could regularly export to an sql file and have it on my computer in case of data loss or host move at a later date?

    phpBB/MyBB and other forum software question

    Just a quick question; Do forum softwares that require hosting like phpBB, myBB and similar have the option to download a database of sorts of all forum posts, settings etc? So if I wanted to move hosts I wouldn't lose data?

    Changeable forum themes for users

    That's why I liked proboards v5. The plugin way and installation of themes was incredibly easy. I remember hating v4 because of all the coding involved and multiple times you'd get coding conflicts.

    Are we becoming more disconnected by Technology

    I'd love vr meet ups. Would certainly benefit me as loved ones of mine don't live nearby unfortunately.

    Paid Forum Software

    I plan to try out both to compare once I have signed up to a free host. Hopefully one that has simple installation of the aforementioned forum softwares. Some instructions for installing mybb have just confused me.

    Changeable forum themes for users

    Depends on the forum software. Some allow simply adding a theme by uploading a theme file or installing from a list available either in admin panel or linked to the admin panel. So it's really easy. Others are more of pita though, with code editing etc.

    Changeable forum themes for users

    It's one thing I really expect from a forum as not everyone gets on with each theme (i.e I prefer dark these as they're easier on the eyes tha bright themes). Then there are people who have different eyesight problems like needing bigger text, or different coloured backgrounds to be able to read...

    Paid Forum Software

    Since everyone seems to be on XenoForo these days I've only ever experienced XF so will have to say XF. I like the features.

    I don't want to move away from them. I just want to find one that suits my needs. But some free softwares require hosting and as such I need to test them out first before deciding. I think it's silly to not join a forum just because it's on a free provider or a free forum software. As mentioned...

    Thought you were talking about providers, not individual boards?
