Vanilla forums.

Vanilla Forums. Free Open Source PHP/MySQL application which offers a twist on the usual boring forums concept. Definitely worth a look.  With Vanilla we wanted to break the mold created and followed by just about every other forum on the web. We sat down and thought about what we liked, and more importantly, what we didn’t like about web forums. We wanted emphasis on the discussions rather than the statistics.
