Hi Sean,

To run a forum you will need a host.

There are some free hosts but for a forum based community you really should be running off a paid host.

Godaddy offers hosting + .com domains for ~$50 a year.

Next thing you would need would be the forum software.

There are a ton of options, both free and paid.

Do some research and see what you like, most of them will have ACP,MCP and many will have the ability to add badges.

Godaddy will install some forum software for free.. I think it is just SMF and phpbb but I am not certain.

most web hosting services offers forum software where it will install on your site with just one click. Then all you have to do is to customize it.

if you want to look at different bbs systems you can install yourself see the following

The PHP Resource Index: Complete Scripts: Bulletin Board Message Systems

Looks like: Codezwiz >> PHP Nuke themes and scripts development and support

Probably a mix of a few different CMSs.
