I'm looking for a forum module that looks nice for a small .com start up I'm working with. A lot of the ones I see, even with themes in place, look antiquated, instead of the threaded, facebook-esque look we're looking for. Could someone point me in the right direction? [more inside]

Why are all web Forum/Bulletin Board systems so horrible? Is there anything that outdoes PHPBB, vBulletin etc. and adds a bit of good ol' fashioned Web 2.0 usability to the genre? [more inside]

My friends and I are working - and when I say working, I should add that it is with only very vague direction as we are almost all self-taught - on a web project which we think would be very useful to many people. It is in some small respect tangentially similar to Metafilter, but would not compete with it. Are there any out-of-the-box products, commercial or free, that allow a similar question-and-answer (or comment-and-answer) functionality, where anyone can post and/or comment? [more inside]

I'm running a PhPBB forum. Spammers have found it. Mysterious strangers selling vigorous blue pills popped up from nowhere.
Now I need to build something that will prevent spammers from polluting it. Is there a silver bullet that prevents all spammers from ever posting on PHPBB forums ? (I know, but I'm an eternal optimistic).
Any antispam mods that has been successfullyt tested someone would like to recommend ?
Thanks in adavance.

I'm looking to add a very basic ASP 'support' forum for an industrial site. Natuarally, this is on a shoestring budget, and I'd prefer not to write it myself. I'm hoping that there is a basic forum implementation that I can adapt. The hosting of the site presents all sorts of 'fun' requirements. [more inside]

Looking to do some discussion forums on a commercial web site. I know there's a bunch of code in a can for this kind of stuff. Most of the one's I've seen are looking to be run on MySQL and PHP. Most of our site is on Microsoft SQL Server and IIS/ASP. Does anybody have thoughts or suggestions with respect to the best package for that environment? [more inside]
