    you mean a free webhosting script?
    I am creating one now, but it probably wont be finished for another month or two.
    And because of the complexity of the type of script, to find a somewhat decent one for free isn't very likely.

    sounds pretty custom...
    you would be better off making your own.

    That script is pretty custom, no doubt about it. I'd studied it carefully(guess for what.....) & its a mix up of a blog-hosting, dating service, etc. which are interconnected. So you can have references of your friend's blog etc on your blog & your friend can have the same for you.

    I think that you'll find each of its features as seperate scripts but you won't find anything similar to that as a whole for free(or maybe for a price, you'll have to have it custom built).

    A few php coders and I were going to make a myspace script at the beginning of the year. But it's not going to be anywhere near free. That's a very large and complex script which will takes months to develop, who would give that hard work away for free?
    There are many requests for a myspace type script, and for some reason, there is no such thing out there (at least that I have been able to find). I think either you are out of luck, or you will have to fork out some money...

    Well, the last I heard, Linux is free, PHP is free, FireFox is free, MySQL is free, PostgreSQL is free, phpBB is free, WordPress is free & so are many other things which took a lot of time & hardwork to materialise to their present stable form. There are quite a lot of people who give away their hardwork for free & there are those who work hard to keep projects of these kind free.

    As soon as something like that becomes free or even available for a low cost, the Internet will be overrun with sites like that. Kinda like hot-or-not sites.

    Whether to charge for a script that you make is solely your decision, no one have a say in that but I was just trying to impress that scotty is wrong, people do give out their months & years of hardwork for free.

    I believe that someone made that kind of remark before phpBB was there & forums were available for a steep price. Now do we have phpBB plastered all over?

    You can purchase ready-made software for creating social networking site, for example, PG Social Networking software. But you will have to customize it or order custom work to be done, whichever script you choose since all of them do not include the option you require..

    Not quite free, but if you check out rockettheme.com and templateplazza.com (communa 2 template) you will find what you want using joomla and community buildier as the core scripts. They will cost you approx. $35 if you go down this track.

    LOL

    Just goes to show that we don't always read the fine detail, just the content. I think you have good reasoning for a Vbulletin rethink on how it handles old threads. Maybe a big flashing light...Saying 'Old thread...don't go there'.
