The first thing I noticed was : "threads".
I doubt that a founder using phpBB would go as far as to change the wording from topic(s) to thread(s)>

Also the link to a post has a totally different structure

Oh boy you missed a very special guy who did so (except for the filename viewtopic.php he was insisting on calling it "threads" all the way). He even showed up anew after being banned and was easy to recognized because of this (see screenshot).

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.

Indeed, though the site is brand new, so I don't think he missed much as far as updates are concerned.

There is no need to go "deep into code". Things like that are in the language files and are simple to change (300+ times).

Perhaps he even changed viewtopic.php to viewthread.php ;)
