What is the difference between this and a forum sponsorship?
A forum sponsorship gives you a banner advertisement on the main forum page. A hosted forum gives you a banner ad on the main page, as well as an area for your own discussions.
Do we have to be a member of MartialTalk to use this service?
Yes. In order to use our services, we require that all members of the hosted forums maintain a martialtalk.com account.
"X" offers similar services for less/free. Why should we pay you?
Good question. Many other services are in fact free. They offset that by either limiting your traffic, serving adverts, or both. Often times, they are on forums that either do not have the rich feature set we have, are slower, or bug ridden.
MartialTalk is constantly adding new features and services. In addition, we do not limit your traffic nor do we flood your visitors with popup or popunder ads. We use the forum industry leading vBulletin software, which has a reputation for quality, support and reliability.
