Well, I started to program a forum software in August. Since then, it has gone a long way. Now I have opened its official website and a BETA download is now avalaible for the public. I urge you to take a copy of FlexBB for yourself. Some of the advantages of FlexBB and why you should try it out have been listed on the Official Website, but here is just a taste...
- There are updates from FlexBB's Official Site nearly every 2 weeks or less! Every new version has at least 2 brand new features or more, or has another significant update to it.
- Even though FlexBB is only at v0.4.6beta, it already has many features of a forum, that some forums don't even support!

You can find more on FlexBB's official website.

What is FlexBB?

FlexBB is a forum software, that I have created, if you haven't already figured that out.

Why should I download it?

You should download it to test it. I don't expect anyone to use FlexBB for their full forum yet except for me. We would really appreciate it if you told us about the problems you have encountered along the way with FlexBB, and we will try to fix it for later versions, so we can make FlexBB the best forum software for v1.0 release!

What should I do if I come accross a problem?

If you have any issues about FlexBB, or any comments, please, do not post them in this thread. Please go to our Support Forums, which you can find a link to through our official website.

In closing, I will just say this: Please download and try out a forum software that has taken all the FlexBB staff so hard and long to do!

Thank you in advance,

The software looks very promising. From the looks of everything, flexbb is still in the works, but it has the main features down. Nice.

Wow, it's came a long way Kokkei. If you don't know who this is... :P. Anyway, yes. I love it, you know I do. I can't wait till they become the new PokeU forums. What is the current link on those... It all changes so much. Well, anyway... Nice. I recomend you all try it too.

Is it going to be free?
Nice, I probably will download it if it is.
How did you make it? Was it hard?

At the current time, FlexBB does not cost a penny!

I might check it out at some point.

thanks everyone... it is free, but it wont be in the future if ppl dont start donating!

anyways, ummm, it has taken me a long time. Im on the computer an average on 7 hours a day... and thats all basically FlexBB programming all the way since August... so it has been a hard project, but hopefully, in the end, it will pay off :)

Please people, get FlexBB! It is free at the moment, and we are trying to get more publicity. I am the main Graphic Designer of FlexBB, and have provided an 88x31 button for people to link to us if you like. See below:
