Second to that objective is a core set of essential features with a professional looking user interface. Author provides one-to-one technical support over the phone (517-803-4197) to get MyProBB installed properly at no charge. Author welcomes feature requests to enhance the product but business-oriented feature requests with valid use-cases take priority. Using MyProBB for businesses purposes is $25/year. It is also free for personal use but donations are encouraged. (Hence the "quasi-commercial" license).
