I'm looking for a forum engine for my website, which will look modern, easy to use and follow lengthy discussions.
Most of the times people hear "forum" they imagine unresponsive phpBB with terrible color scheme and unnecessarily huge user info sections (avatar, signature) about 600px high each, which make it impossible to see more than 5 posts on a really big screen. I'd like it to be the other way around with my future forum.
Features I'd like to see:
- Clean, transparent section/thread selection,
- Must not have "message posted, you will be redirected to wherever" screens,
- 1-click message posting (captchas are ok, but not the ones that erase the whole post when you mistype),
- Tree hierarchy for comments to posts
