History in their own language

"The Lefora Team got fed up with the lack of features available in message boards, such as vbulletin and phpbb forums. We use them everyday, from art forums, to game forums, to tech forums - we couldn't get over just how old school they were. Something needed to be done! So we created a free forum hosting service.

We've taken our development experiences and put them together to create what we believe is how discussions should happen on the web. Our forums are social, engaging, easy to use, free, and most importantly - fun. We dread things like clicking through multiple pages, not being able to filter out annoying posters, dealing with spam, the necessity to create an account just to make a quick comment, staring at butt-ugly templates, never getting notified of responses to our questions, not being able to embed YouTube videos... The list just keeps going on, we're sure you're familiar with our complaints.

We also know how hard it has been up until now to find a simple forum hosting provider. It takes just a few clicks to get a blog going; why can't a forum hosting be that way?

We provide free forum hosting, the forum software, forum installation, and promotion of your forum."
