A friend and I have shared hosting at dreamhost which allows us to setup as many domains as we wish. If someone wanted to purchase a domain for MYTH, I could setup and host forums and/or a MYTH website (for free of course). Dreamhost has phpBB preinstalled but we could probably install any php based forum system.

Let me know what you guys think.

I'm happy to grab another domain. I get a pretty good rate from GoDaddy since I have so many already. Let me know and I'll get something ordered.

I'm not sure what this means. Would we be replacing this Forum with another from your dreamhost? Could we move any content from this Forum to that one? Who would administer the new one (ie set it up, screen users, do banners and whatever other stuff Aura and Ariena put in place for this Forum.) Really I have no idea what's involved. All I know how to do for this Forum is post, edit, and ask for help if something goes wrong

As far as I can tell in my research Forumer doesn't allow you to export your forum data in any reasonable fashion (either through the admin panel nor as a database backup).

It's possible you could extract the data with a page scrubber or some other service that would extract and then store the data in a form that would be usable for import into another but that would likely require a bit of work.

Yes we would be replacing this forum with another one hosted on dreamhost. I do not know about transferring content. The forum admins could all remain the same. I can give complete control of it to someone else.

Some advantages to switching:
- Faster page loads
- No banner ads
- Our own domain name


You can see a demo of phpBB here: https://www.phpbb.com/demo/

Looks very good!
I'd say go ahead and get one.
Since Aura and Ariena are no longer active in this capacity, I'd really appreciate it if you guys could do the set up and admin.

Awesome!

Now we need to decide on a domain name.

I checked mythguild.com and myth-guild.com and both are taken. Mythguild.info is available. Does anyone have other ideas?

Don't know why I didn't think of this one before: gwmyth.com is available.

Quantum, after you register the domain point it to:
ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

I was thinking we should set up the forums at forums.gwmyth.com and have www.gwmyth.com be a info page about the guild and maybe later we can turn it into a full blown website.

The forum is setup! Go to forums.gwmyth.com and register. Then I can promote you guys to admins.

I started setting up the forums but it will still need a lot of work.
