Basically if you intend to make a decent forum you better not choose Forumotion. They didn't have ads at first but now they do and most file hoster links automatically get adf.ly'ed by the forum software. They also make you pay for removing their ads, getting more attachment storage, removing their copyright on a free forum software and obviously for a custom domain which can't be free anyway. I wrote this post in Notepad++ because the forum wasn't reachable at that time, just a spinning "loading" icon. Some forum improvement suggestions made on their help forum are from 2008 which are super useful but still haven't been implemented yet and it's almost 2015. Terrible internal search engine as well.
