Best Boards was the dream of two friends who were unable to find a message board script or remotely hosted message board that adequately fulfilled their online community needs. Chris Brooks, a phenomenal programmer and his online friend and co-administrator, Pam Hammersley, decided to create their own network. From the first board to be created using Chris's Best Boards system to the 10,000th board, each board has access to some very powerful and innovative features to use to help them manage and maintain their online communities.
Initially the network was modest and the focus was on developing new ways to empower board administrators to run and maintain their thriving online communities. From the ability to back up their boards in two ways, to being able to save their user account pretences to their hard drives, Best Boards went about things differently from the beginning because of their combined experience running message boards for almost four years. Technical support is as important as having a variety of unique features. Best Boards Technical Support is #1 and a big part of why people who have boards here will recommend us to their friends over any other service out there on the net today.
First opening to the public in the beginning of December 2001, Best Boards continued growing slowly as word spread about the new service, as well as adding new features. From the searchable collection of FAQ's, the detailed Online Help Manuals to the BbSupport Forums, it is obvious the emphasis Best Boards has on helping all members. With three levels of service available, Free Ad Supported, Fixed and Variable, Best Boards offers anyone over 13 the ability to have a professional looking message board that they can customize using one of 50 pre-made BbThemes, CSS, HTML or the Easy Customization that can control the overall look of a BbBoard.
Listening to members requests for new features has helped shape the face of the BbNetwork and in just under one year Best Boards has proven itself to have the staying power needed to make it in the current online message board market. Over the coming months and years Best Boards will be continuing to provide the absolute best service and support that has made it so successful in so short a time. Expanding and adding more servers is only one aspect of the plans Best Boards has in store for the future. If you are looking for a stable message board provider, give Best Boards a chance. Try out the free boards which are not stripped dry of features. Only the features like File Hosting, Posting by Email, BbGames, BbChat, and the Full Log are not available on the Free boards because these features use up more bandwidth then the advertising can cover. All of the on board effects and in house scripts are available to every BbBoard regardless of what level of service they use.
To get those feature activated and to reduce the advertising on a BbBoard it is only $2.50 a month to upgrade to the Fixed Plan. For the Variable Plan the minimum monthly cost is $2.50 and if your community is not extremely busy the cost for keeping it ad free is about the same as going with our Fixed Plan. There is no cost to register a BbUsername which will work on any BbBoard in the BbNetwork. Every member of Best Boards can use avatars from our BbAvatar Gallery. Members can add their favorite sites and BbBoards to their public profiles so other members can easily check out each other's favorite boards and sites online with a click of their mouse. Best Boards strives to be the best message board provider on the net and with our member's suggestions and feedback we are doing just that. Come join in the fun on Best Boards, you'll be glad you did.
