I thought that You are all user of different forums (softwares) and have Your preferences for one or the other software.
To know, which software are Your favorite as forum user could help to find the best for us.
In my case it is IP Board or Burning Board. I have also no experience as (technical) administrator.
I guess that only Henk has experience in this direction.
A few Years ago I made some test demonstrations.

And all tested softwares were really to use as moderator or administrator - without prior knowledge! I am also just a forum user.
