    Hey,
    Im looking at getting a forum up and going, i wanted one with a cool system in place a little like this one with ''thanks & rep'' avatars,sigs, stars all that stuff.

    Is this something readily available or do you have to get someone to code that stuff in?

    Many thanks

    I believe this forum is based off of a vBulletin template

    these are addon stuffs that you either find a plugin online or hire a coder do them for you. There is no ready turnkey system that comes with all those bells and whistles by default

    vBulletin: Costs $250 but has a shitload of features out of the box
    SMF: Free and requires mods
    IPB: Dont know cost, not too many features out of box
    PHPBB: Dead
    Xenforo: Havent used


    IMO, go with vBulletin or SMF. Alot of huge forums (including major sites) use vBulletin.
