    Hi, my name is Dae and I currently am the co-owner/admin for a text-based role playing game. We currently use Boards2Go for our forum needs, and while we love the options we're given to edit it, we're getting a bit tired of the nasty advertisements everywhere.

    We need:
    *Threaded style - absolutely NO "Proboards", Invisionfree, etc.
    *Players may post without registering
    *Players are given the option to have replies mailed to them, as well as to edit
    *HTML must be allowed

    I've spent a large part of the day today searching for something like this, and everything I've found either doesn't allow editing or forces the players to register. *sighs* I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction?

    This is an example of the boards we are currently using:
    http://boards2go.com/boards/board.cg...lonestarranch2

    And this is an example of what we don't want:
    http://ourworld.spiritsoftheearth.net/

    How about a forum like this one? vBulletin
    Maybe the WDF owner knows if vBulletin can do what you need.

    Um, VBulletin actually looks a lot like ProBoards, which we don't want or need. We really are looking for something more like this:
    http://boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?user=triadhumans2

    See the difference with this one?

    Thanks very much for taking the time to give that suggestion though!! I appreciate it!

    Another idea ...

    How about a free open-source forum like Simple Machines:
    http://www.simplemachines.org/

    And then you customize it ... so anyone can post without registering.
    I think no matter what forum script you find, you'll have to either hire
    a freelance programmer to alter the script, or figure out how to do it yourself.

    I think simple machines might be an easier forum to "strip-down" and customize
    than most other scripts ... it doesn't seem to be as complicated as phpBB.
