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."
And if you do mean thread then you've just made one.
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.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...
