Hi,

I am a new Joomla user and I would like to insert a discussion board on my site. I headed on the different options and concluded that Fireboard is the best choice.
However, I think that it has too many features that clutters up the presentation. I need a simple and efficient forum. What I mean is that the main important thing is the message, not the person who said it. So I hate statistics, avatar, signatures, status ..., a simple username is enough. There are a lot more but I do not wanna state them because people are different, they are important for others.

So here is my idea:
[u]solution 1[/u]:
provide more options in the administration panel

interesting but it is going to be countless
[u]problem[/u]
even if someone choose to disable something (for example mydiscussion, or avatar display ...) they are still there but no seen only, so there is no much gain in performance
[u]solution 2[/u]:
Give a documentation of how Fireboard works, (name of PHP variables, functions, ...).

This is what GNU is about. That way, it is easier for developers to enable/disable things, improve performance and share ideas.

[u]problem[/u]
security risk is higher

Thanks
