    Is it possible to start a Hub Forum myself, and if so how do I do it?

      The Forum categories are established by the staff, but they do take suggestions if you see a category that is not already in place, and fills a need.
      Though the forums are active here, they are not the main focus of HubPages.

      If you mean a thread, then yes.  Click on a category where it fits, then click on "Post a New Topic."

        No I did mean an actual forum as there's one I can't seem to find on here.  Though Im not used to HubPages yet - Ive only been a member for 2 weeks - so maybe I just can't find it.

            Anything to do with being a carer - an unpaid carer for a friend or relative that is, not the kind of carer who does it as a job.  I wondered if there were any others like me on Hub.

              If you want to start your own forum on the subject you will probably need to buy a domain and hosting on it. If you want though you could just start a thread on it here and see who responds.

    There are free solutions available, like Zoho.com. Also, you can set up a low-cost forum by signing up for a Ning network, which supports up to 150 members for about $20/year.
