Sk8 added a topic in Pre-Sales QuestionsConsidering Starting a Forum using IP.B: Though I've questionsHullo,
Currently I am a head admin for a growing writing forum for young writers and am quite familiar with IP.B because our forum has a license for 3.0 I do believe. At any rate, the forum will be closing soon because the current owner has lost the wind in his sails as well he lacks the desire of selling it to anyone.
However, because the community that has grown there is quite strong, there is the discussion of a branch-off forum starting up for the community to move to.
I quite like IP.Boards, in fact I'm rather spoiled to it to be honest. Though I'm utterly dull in the head when it comes to any sort of coding, therefore I was looking at the packaged hosting deal.
There is, however, one pressing question I have.
The reason the current site will be closing is because we've a cleaver hacker that's slipped through the database. Granted, I do believe the site is hosted elsewhere and not with IP.Boards, but I wanted to know how secure the security was and if I'd have need to worry about this pest wreaking havoc if I bought a packaged deal and started up a new site.
Also, if by chance any would give advice on things I'd need to know as a site owner or the like.
Any help is much appreciated and I thank any for their time in advance if they choose to stop and respond,
