Hi,

Just a wondered why nobody has proposed to build a forum applications in Common Lisp. Using UCW and friends should be a cool thing to do, anybody ? :)

I've thought about doing this myself using the Hunchentoot and Elephant libraries. I've never used UnCommon Web but I see it's worth looking in to. I remember looking at the phpBB table layout, writing BBS software in Python at the time. Anyway, from that experience, writing basic forum software isn't very hard. I like phpBB, and it's code base is very mature. We could strive to duplicate most of it's features and see what happens.

I thought of that as well; the only thing that stopped me was my relative inexperience with web programming, in Lisp or otherwise. Now that I come to think of it, it would make a wonderful learning opportunity.

My skills in web development are not very valuable as well but as I am learning UCW, it would a great opportunity to learn more easily UCW concepts, etc.

So if comes to be a UCW project, I would probably be of it (if wanted :))
