I'm on a board where one of the Founders went deep into the code and replaced "topics" with "threads." It is a phpBB board, albeit an extremely modified one. Not even viewtopic.php was spared.
There is no need to go "deep into code". Things like that are in the language files and are simple to change (300+ times).
He made numerous other changes to the board software as well. viewforum.php and viewtopic.php are completely gone and replaced with something else. He didn't just change some words, he replaced entire functions of the board.

He replaced the parameters completely. They don't even resemble that structure anymore.
