    Anyone want to lend a hand to an Admin who's still painting stick figures on cave walls?

    I'm still hosting on Y!Groups...and I know its time that I go elsewhere and join the current times. I use PBWorks for all my game's information, so all I really need is a site for hosting the gameplay/writing itself.

    Help a cavegirl out? XD What is simple, easy to manage, if not comparable to yahoo groups style?



    Thank you for not judging!

    Are you interested in setting up a forum or more of a group/email service?

    Do you plan on self-hosting (e.g. getting a host and then installing a forum software on it) or using a provider e.g. jcink, etc?

    What is your budget?

    1. I'd like to have a forum, my usual players are a mix between users that use their email only and those who like to post from a site.

    2. Given that I have no experience with any of these things, I can't answer this question. Hence why I'm asking for information.

    3. No budget really, we're all lax players so paying for a service wouldn't be ideal.

    Jcink then, it is a good host and you don't need money at all if you keep it PG-13.
