Where did these forums come from? I like the style of it and wouldn't mind to know where it came from for my own site.Was it free to get them?

Anyone know of any good free forums or message boards?

This place is powered by vBulletin 3. It is most definitely not free, and has a yearly license fee. Another good commercial solution is invision power boards.

However since it sounds like you want a free option, the best free option is phpBB2.

Although to run any of these you will need a web host which supports PHP and mySQL. If you don't know what these are, then you probably don't have them. (There are free hosts out there that support PHP and mySQL, but they aren't very good).

So if you don't have a host, and you don't want to pay for one, you can use proboards or bravenet or some such, but these are really nothing in comparison to vBulletin/invision/phpBB

Commercial PHP (best option, but costs money. Also need good host.)

vBulletin - http://www.vbulletin.com

Invision Power Board - http://www.invisionboard.com

Free PHP (a good option. a good host is still needed)

phpBB2 - http://www.phpbb.com

Free Remote Hosted (horrible option. but completely free)

ProBoards - http://www.proboards.com

Bravenet - http://www.bravenet.com

Sudden Launch - http://www.suddenlaunch.com

And a host of others...

As previously stated these forums are running vBulletin 3.0.3 with hacks here and there. The style for the web site was purchased and is not freely available - it has also been quite heavily customised since.
