Hey ^_^

So I've been working on this web app for a couple of years and I'm looking for some extra feedback before I launch it. It's an open-source web forum called esoTalk. Kinda takes a different approach to vBulletin and the others - this screencast (http://www.vimeo.com/2867330) (2 mins) probably explains it better that I can write.

Anyway, if you're interested in this kinda thing (or if you're bored) then have a play around with it (http://forum.esotalk.com/) and please let me know if you can find any bugs that have slipped through. It should work in Firefox 3, Safari 3, IE7, and IE6. And maybe Opera 9, though I haven't checked that recently.

Source code is available here (http://get.esotalk.com/) if you're able to check that out or install it on your own server (PHP4/5, MySQL5).

And yeah, the purpose of this post is to find beta testers, not to deviously solicit downloads (or whatever) of an unfinished product. ;P

Is this is on the esoTalk support forum (http://forum.esotalk.com)? Or on one you've installed yourself? Not entering a valid username/password should show an error message.

Just from looking at the screen cast I have to say that I'm very impressed. It seems like you've nailed the balance between functionality and complexity. Kudos.
