My goodness O.H. you are an ambitious one. Didn't I just read that this one was keeping you from completing your own Airstream trailer repairs?
As an interested user of several "interest related" forums, I wish I had the expertise to assist on most of them. Lord knows they all need plenty of assistance.
Fact is that I don't have the computer/tech background (nor the desire to attain it)(nor the time to spend on it).
As a bandwidth provider and hosting executive you are undoubtedly in contact with many forum operations. What are some of the more successful ones in your estimation? And how do you judge success of a forum? Number of "members" signed up, number of "members" active, amount of revenue garnered from ads, user friendliness of interface ?
Much luck on your undertakings, I only hope that they will not diminish the life of this venture.
One plus in both the areas (travel & antiques) that you are considering is that you should not have to spend any more money on lawyers to craft licensing agreements both subjects being generic.
