Hello World!

We believe that forums are essential to online communities. lefora was started to bring forums up to speed with the latest ‘social’ and ‘technological’ trends seen across many of the ‘web2.0’ sites that have popped up over the past few years (has it really been that long?)

The existing forum market is huge, however the options that exists for everyday people are pretty slim. You pretty much have phpBB and derivatives, vBulletin, InvisionPowerBoards, or something tacked onto a larger service (like facebook’s groups). We want to change all that with an offering that is simple to use, fun to use, and makes life easy for admins and moderators. And that’s why we created lefora forums.

This blog will try to focus on a few things:

  • Where are forums headed?
  • What makes for a successful forum?
  • How do forums enable “community”?

We’ll talk about our own vision, but we’ll also bring in forum admins from across the web to get their take as well.

Remember, forums pre-date the web, but they don’t have to feel that way.

    I agree. Forums are more democratic than comments in blogs. The best feature you have is the ability to import blogs into the forum.

    Nice going.

    Good luck with your project! We’re working in a web site for one of our customers and we’re considering using your services. We’re definitely going to keep an eye on this.

    Another hearty “congrats” on the launch… you’re in a great space that is ripe for someone to finally do it right. Cheering for your success, hope to help out along the way.
