Hi, guys. I was running a phpBB forum, but I've been looking for something better and easier to handle. I have a few questions.

What are the system requirements? What does my host need to have, or have activated, for me to be able to run it?

How easy is it to create custom BBCodes? In phpBB, it's extremely easy, and I could create dozens in hours, but with all the other forum freewares I've looked at, I have to understand a ton of code to get them to work.

Can users have their own custom titles to go under their names in forum posts?

Is there an auto-update feature? To get threads to automatically refresh as you're reading them?

Is there an ignore list feature?

Can users have profile pictures as well as avatars?

And can avatars be remotely linked to instead of uploaded?
