Essentially, I'm looking for a basic forum for myself and my friends. See the Community (Forums Board) in [url removed, login to view] for an example. No fancy functions, just basics like posting, adding/deleting threads, member profiles, events calendar, private messaging, etc. No vbulletins, or anything more complex than being able to attach a jpg/zip to a post. Moderator has unlimited access to all sections of the site, members can only add posts, add threads, calendar events, etc.
I'd like to be able to use my own graphics (layout) or at least make modification to the graphics that will be provided with the forum (if applicable). color scheme etc.
