    There a question that comes up once every 2 or so weeks on TAZ: What forum system should I buy? In this article I'm going to answer that question for once and all.

    Q: So what should/shouldn’t I buy? What would you recommend?

    A: Only you (the forum admin/owner) can answer that! As far as what I would recommend, I’m not telling you!

    The reason

    The reason for the above answer is plain and simple, every forum is going to have different requirements – Some people need a full on suite (Think IPS), some only need a forum and nothing else and some may need something in between.

    Can you help me with anything?

    But it not all bad news, what I can give is some helpful advice on selecting a forum system.

    • Decide what add-ons you are going to want/need. Is the system you are looking at have the required add-ons? How much do they cost?
    • Lastly, do your homework and math – It could end up cheaper spending more on say VB with a bunch of free add-ons than buying IPS and having to fork out $$$ for all the extras that you want/need.

    Well that’s all I have for you, and good luck with launching your next forum.
