1. Where did you find out about us from? (if from search engine, please state which one, and the term you searched for) - I used Google search, typed :free forum hosting. and there it was.

2. If you came from another host, what made you switch over to our network? -I had one forum on proboards (orsmth), it was long time ago and anyway, i like ff much more.

3. What made you choose us over all the other forum hosts out there? -Mostly it's because i like admins and other staffs here and forums keep up to regenerate.

1....... Google, search for "Free Forum"

2....... I didn't come from another but but DID intentionally choose a PHPbb host as it is my favourite type of forum (I had admined before but not on my very own forum)

3....... Large number of members, professional image, support forum, easy to use, good feature for the price (i.e. free).

Thumbs up guys. :D

Been a regular of a forum board that's using your service when I decided to make one for myself. :)

2. If you came from another host, what made you switch over to our network?

First time Founder/Admin here. Though I did co-moderate a friend's board from forumer.com but that didn't last long (2-3 months maybe).

3. What made you choose us over all the other forum hosts out there?

Great mods, free account, unobtrusive ads, great support people, and more. I don't think there's a place more comfortable this side of the internet. ;)
Please do not PM me for support. If you only wish to chat though, feel free to do so. :D
Please direct all support queries in the support forum for the benefit of all.

Reminder: Please don't forget to flag your topic as resolved (click the resolved link on top of the page) as soon as the issue is fixed. Thank you. :)

I probably should of found you guys sooner, It was indeed a google search but I signed up to proboards and was not impressed by the layout or features. So I dissed that for freeforums :) and I have never been happier since.

We look forward to hearing back from you guys! :D

1. I found out about you guys on Google.

2. You guys have more features for free than any other forum host I know of. Believe me, I know of a lot. I have been trying to produce a productive forum for some time now, and when I came across this host, I tried it, thinkingthat it would be like all the other ones. But it's not! This site gives you a crapload more features on the free accounts than any other host, forum or not!

3. I have pretty much tried all the forum hosts that you can find on Google, and none of them have made me as happy a consumer as this one. You guys do a very good job and I am envious of how well your site is doing. Got any traffic tips for me? lol. :D

Found it by a Google search for Free Forums.
I checked it out and decided that it looked like I might be able to manage
it.
I have been more than satisfied with all the help I have been given. I really think I am beginning to understand about forums.

1. From a Google search for Free Forum Hosting.

2. I fiddled with another service and found I liked yours better. Once I found the tutorials in the Support Forum, setting up our forum as we wanted was relatively easy - before the tutorials, it was challenging!

1. I Found out on Google Search - "Free Forums". I honestly didn't know there was freeforums.org at the time :P

2. I just like the accessibility, E.g there are easily-accessible guides to make freeforums easier to use, e.g Freeforums guides are a little easier to find where-as forums such as ipbfree, i can't find many guides :S
oh, and I haven't done much coding as-of-yet to get the site that i would like, freeforums are easy to use because i'm not good at coding much ;)
