Re: Rumination on the new list idea, another take
Taken from c.o.l.a.:
"WWWThreads is a fast/reliable discussion forum licensed under the GNU
GPL. Combining and adding upon the best features of available forum
packages it offers a multitude of end user options that include both
flat or threaded displays, expandable and collapsable threads, private
messages, user profiles, search engines, file attachments, board
subscriptions and more. A total admin package includes moderators,
unlimited boards, ban/unban username or ip, close threads, expire
threads and more. Runs off of Mysql for reliability and will run under
mod perl for speed.
The source code and a demo can be found at http://www.wwwthreads.org"
Isn't this almost exactly what we need?
