    Hey ot!,

    So I've been on a few gaming websites lately. Mainly www.maddenstrategy.net and www.360ballerz.com

    So please look at those as examples of what they are doing. I can't say I'm really impressed with their sites however I don't know how in detail it needs to be. Basically you just need a forum, with a decent layout or template.

    The problem with both of those sites is that the community is incredibly disrespectful to each other, and I can't stand that. So I'm thinking of starting a site very similar to theirs except with strong rules against verbal attacks on others etc.

    What I'm wondering is what is the best strategy to go for a site setup? I know phpnuke was big back in the day. Then it grew into nuke-evolution. Some sites are using vbulletin etc.

    The goal will be like theirs with leagues for madden and 2k etc.

    If you were in my shoes which would you pick or what advice would you give?

    Thanks ot!

    I'm leaning toward vbulletin but good themes are hard to find for it. What do you all think?

    Vbulletin with VBAdvanced.

    There are some decent themes out there that just need a little tweaking.
