Quicksilver Forums

Quicksilver Forums is a fast, feature rich bulletin board system. It is fully object oriented and optimized for speed, ease of use, and easy modification. It checks all inputs though a common interface, which drastically reduces the chances of exploitable bugs. A powerful and flexible skinning engine makes giving your board a new look very simple. An advanced permissions system allows for fine-grained group and user permissions. It is based on the popular MercuryBoard software.
