    'Free', sorry to say nothing about this site is free.

    The forum software plus the custom theme.

    What forum software are you planning to use?
    Xenforo is modern looking, vbulletin is professional, ipb is clean and sleek.

    Xenforo is the product used to create this site. It's not free and you can buy it from the link below. You're very welcome to create your own website/forum using this

    https://xenforo.com/

    The theme, and content of Android Forums cost money to create, and it costs money to maintain it. Given that, you may not copy or reuse any part of this forum, because it's not your property.

    Scroll down to the bottom of this page and you'll see a Copyright notice. That means you can't legally copy or somehow clone this forum.

    Also see section 4 of the terms of service, also linked at the bottom of this page

    Dont mean to go against you, but in the end we all know rippers can rip the site.

    Being that the theme isnt properly owned legally, people can take it so long as they dont reused the ANdroidforums name.

    I wont argue that statement :).

    I did not bother to read the TOS to be honest.
