At the bottom of the page we read: "Powered by phpBB © 2001, 2005 phpBB Group" I guess it would be nice if we provided a link or such. As far as I know it's free, I think it is.

We use to run YaBB but that kinda went away when PlanetBlood did a directory audit and we ended up moving here. (Again, thanks Willis for hosting us!)

If you want to pay for something, there's vBulletin

phpbb is free and requires php and mysql [1 database] (both also free).
We're running a highly customized version of the SubBlack template theme.
We're also running a guest posting visual confirmation mod, as well as a personal customized account signup field mod.

SMF is probably the best free forum software available at the moment.
I'm using it here: http://www.influidsoftware.com/forum
