On Friday, May 24, we will switch our forum systems.
Currently our forums run FluxBB. While this is a good platform, it does not meet all of our needs and has a few incompatibilities with our codebase.
We are going to replace this forum system with FutureBB, which is much more powerful and fits with our codebase. All topics, posts, and users on these forums will be preserved.
We have a working draft of the new system, and here are a few screenshots:
That day, we also plan on releasing FutureBB Beta. This contains several new features and bug fixes from alpha. However, it will not come with an installer, and configuration files must be edited manually. The automatic installer will be restored in FutureBB 1.0.

Today is the first anniversary of our founding on April 7, 2012!
To celebrate this, we decided we would create a new revolutionary program. What we eventually decided on making was FutureBB. While the software is not complete, there is an alpha available for download. This alpha works completely, it just is missing a few features.
In FutureBB, we have a bunch of awesome features, such as...
- Simplicity and ease of use
- Additional CSS style sets that can be uploaded with one click
- Full unread message tracking
- The ability to move topics
- A trash bin to recover deleted topics and posts
- Custom text in the footer
- User avatars
However, we have one feature that NO OTHER FORUM SYSTEM HAS. We have a perfect topic URL system.
Here is how the traditional URL system works:
Topic URL: viewtopic.php?id=5
Forum URL: viewforum.php?id=3
Some people have improved upon this, trying to make the URLs "friendlier", so that users and search engines can understand them better. They look something like this:
Topic URL: topics/5/your-topic
Forum URL: forums/3/some-forum
However, we thought that even that wasn't enough. We didn't want to have ANY obnoxious ID numbers in the URL. We came up with this system:
Topic URL: some-forum/some-topic
Forum URL: some-forum
Not a single other forum system currently available has that feature. They all have ID numbers in there somewhere, which makes it harder for search engines and people to understand their system.
So, if you want to check out our alpha, visit its product page, download it, and install it.
Today also marks the launch of FutureSight Hardware. For a relatively low price compared to most commercial manufacturers, you can get a pretty powerful webserver. Our only current available model starts at $450 and meets all of the necessary specs to run a fairly powerful website.
We also plan to sell personal computers in the future, and built-to-order order desktops. We will announce more details as they come.
The website is hardware.futuresight.org, and servers are on the servers page.
