Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What will be the most 'hackish' free forum software?

I mean, something that looks like old, have many letters, with minimal graphics.

These days there are many fancy looking forums such as phpbb etc. But is there some 'vintage' ones available?

Try scanning the listings here for old software:

I would suggest something thats kept up to date (IE PHPBB or vBulletin ect) but with a "vintage" skin.

I would stay away from an actual "vintage" board due to the fact that typically that means it hasn't been worked on / had bug fixes. Noone writes perfect code, and old boards are prone to plenty of exploits.
