Hi! I really would appreciate some honest answers and help. A quick background: Because of health reasons, I pretty much stay at home and online using health forums. After 4 years of this, it dawned on me that with the time and effort I use for that, I could be running my own forum that deals with our business. I've noticed there is a real need for a forum dealing with our area of business. My question is, I have no formal background in computers, other than using them for online stuff and quickbooks, etc. I looked up at the vBulletin site to see what all it takes to get a forum set up. I'll admit I got lost right away when they mentioned that "my server" would need to be able to handle a couple of things I am not familiar with. Soooo, could someone like me either be able to get through what it takes to set up a forum with, like vBulletin and their prompts? If it is too confusing for me personally to set up, could I hire a local "techie" to set up what I want and then me run it from home? I really appreciate some direction. If it's not possible, okay. It's just now that I cannot work outside the home, but still have a decent brain(nursing degree) and the time to put into this, I thought it could be my contribution to our business. It really is a dream of bringing this together for the social need aspect, and if I can contribute in any way to our family income eventually, I would feel useful.
