Congratulations! You have posted more topics in one day then anyone else, ever. :o

Well it looks like a phpBB3 installation on your localhost, doesn't it? As you said yourself, it's a forked version of phpBB.

Forked means they took phpBB's source code and created their "own" software with it.

I'm not rude, I'm really a very nice guy (I just don't show it).

BTW, how can you say "what the hell", have a Cartman avatar and call me "rude" :P

It began slightly over a year ago, and is lead by A_Jelly_Doughnut, who still frequents phpBB.com, though I haven't seen him over here recently.

I think it was mainly started due to the very slow progress at the time. A_Jelly_Doughnut was very nice about it, not even mentioning it here apart from when others pointed it out, and even then not mentioning the name, and telling other people to google it if they wanted to find out more.

To be honest, I still hold the opinion that it won't go far, especially since it, despite it's aims, still isn't much further ahead of 3.0 in the release scedule, and it isn't anything more than 3.0 without the style, and a bad looking logo.
