<h2>Open source forum - done <em>different</em></h2>
<p>
<strong>fora</strong> follows a different philosophy than that of
other open source forum software:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
No categories, completely dynamic via tags and tag sets instead
of topics
</li>
<li>
No registration &mdash; every visitor is automatically assigned an
account, and they are automatically logged in to the correct
account when visiting again
</li>
<li>
No community authentication &mdash; every user is assumed to be
trustworthy (no passwords to log in, can edit anybody elses’
posts, like a wiki &mdash; although versions are kept)
</li>
<li>
Member trust built on self-sufficient ratings, not mere
membership
</li>
</ul>
<p>With fora, we hope to counter some of the basic anthropological problems
associated with the limitations of normal 'discussion-board', or forum
software. Such limitations and the said problems are discussed in more
depth <a href="http://wakaba.c3.cx/shii/shiichan" title="Discussion and comparision of forum software vs. 2ch-type software">here</a>.</p>
