I'm creating an online game and would like to have some forums or a Wiki to allow discussion and gather feedback etc. among the soon-to-be community.

I'm looking specifically for:

  • Low administrative burden (a hosted solution would be ideal)
  • Ability to theme the site / make it look attractive (my game has a "Steampunk" theme)

What solutions would you recommend?

As delta said, another SX is a better place for this. I'm hearing ning is a decent place for communities, but deliberately not posting this as an answer – Rachel Blum Jul 22 '10 at 18:18
I thought this was the most appropriate site given that it is about setting up forums for a game, and I though other game developers would have better ideas/experience on this that a general application forum. – mikera Jul 26 '10 at 9:38

This question would be much better suited for the Web Applications Stack Exchange site.

And this answer would be much better suited as a comment XD Though, I agree ;) – Michael Barth Jul 22 '10 at 16:11
For the time being, my options are limited :) – Delta Jul 22 '10 at 16:58
+1 so you can put it as a comment! – thyrgle Jul 23 '10 at 1:42
I was asking specifically regarding what was a good solution in the context of independent game development - from that perspective I though this forum would be more appropriate. Either way, I will try the other site you mention. – mikera Jul 26 '10 at 9:37
