    Do you want someone here to upgrade your PHPBB forum for you? Before asking for that kind of help, have you tried reading http://www.phpbb.com/support/documentation/2.0/ It shouldn't be that hard to upgrade your forum to the latest version of PHPBB. We'll be happy to help you with specific questions you might have.

    If you're looking for ongoing maintenance of your forum, you should probably contract with a professional web developer. I'm sure you could find someone with prices that would fit into your budget.

    Do a search for mods to prevent SPAM as well. PhpBB is notorious for the amount of spam bots its receives, and if you don't do something, they will register at least 50+ bots a day!
    One of the best mods I've found is from this site:http://www.marshalrusty.com/phpBB/rac.mod
    Change the mod around a bit to suit yourself. I installed a question like 'How many fingers on one hand'. Change the question and answer regularly. Haven't has an (automatic) SPAM bot join up since

    As I explained earlier, the purpose of this forum is to provide you the means to do the work yourself. We are not in the business of doing work for you for free. If this site needs work done so badly, I'm sure you can find the means to pay someone.
