Yes, welcome! This is a testing instance of vpub, a forum software. It started as a fork of midnight pub and took a life of it's own. I think it's fair to say that it's a very trimmed down phpbb (from which it took a lot of inspiration).

While there's still a lot I'd love to do, I'm already very happy with how things are turning out. I hope you enjoy it too!

Since there's no real manual yet, I might as well explain a few things in here. The concepts are as follow:

Forums can have boards. Boards can have topics. Topics are groups of posts. The admin part allows to create forums and boards, and give some rights such as "locked" or "sticky". It's impossible for people to reply to locked posts (such as this one), and sticky posts stay at the top of a board.

I'm not sure why I'm writing this in a series of posts, but hey, I started, so I might as well keep going! It's possible to have an avatar and a signature. Signatures are a great way to add links to some of your sites/projects.

The syntax is similar to markdown to add links and images. It currently doesn't include everything like bold or italic. Perhaps I'll add it at some point?

Right, I'll stop there for now but probably add more in the future. Stay tuned!
