I am not Justin or Wendy, but I think this should be pretty accurate...

The host of this forum is called vBulletin. To have a license to run a forum here, it is very expensive. If you are interested in starting a forum, go to Purchase vBulletin, the most powerful forum software available. . I am very sure it took J/W many months to get the site ready for the public before it actually opened. They were likely looking for staff members, getting all the sticky's/categories set up, etc. It is not a one-day task. It is very hard work to keep a site this big running as smoothly as this one is running. If you want a more detailed explanation, youll have to ask one of them directly.

WI is a forum - started by Justin, Kevin and Wendy back on March 23, 2007

This thread has some history of WI:

That is exactly correct! I have also used vBulletin to create a forum. Most forums use this service. They only downside is vBulletin [like you siad] is it is not free at all. If you're looking to create a website for free I suggest a webs or weebly as your wesite service.

Have a fantastic holiday!!!,

Yes, this is a vBulletin forum, which costs money to run. If you want a free forum, go to **********.com. I have one there.

They created a forum. It takes time, but it doesn't need to take money. I use MyBB for my forums and it's very good, too. The best thing is is that it's free and has most of the features that vB has, too. MyBB - Free PHP and MySQL Forum Software
You have to get it set up (you'll need some PHP knowledge) and get all of the forums started. It's not something you do in one day, and you have to be really dedicated to what you're doing, too.
If you're not that eager to have a professional site, use ********** or another free forum host. Free forum - **********.net - Free forum

********** is BAD. It turns out they will hack into your site and delete it, or if there is a problem they won't fix it Google or myfreeform.org.

Its a somewhat confusing history.
And you might want to look into the other founder, "Kevin," who stopped going on WI a LONG time ago. He did go on once a few months back, though, but its pretty accepted that its Justin and Wendy who are the 'founders' now.
