Blursoft MetaForum utilizes AJAX to generate a unique forum experience. Threads and posts auto-update in real time, with no refreshing required. User-based moderation ensures only the most interesting topics emerge above your viewing threshold, and private threads invite multiple users to engage in a private conversation. Complete with advanced quoting mechanisms, CSS based templates, and statistically normalized user rankings, MetaForum is a fresh, fast, efficient, and completely new perspective on forums and message boards.
